The battle between the Ottoman Empire and the Holy League known is as the Battle of Lepanto and it is the most important for the Christian religion. It is of great significance because if the Holy League had not won, the Ottoman Empire would have taken over Europe, and destroyed the Christian religion. The forming of the Holy League was important as well. The new naval technique used by the Christian forces and the first success to push back and erode the Ottoman empire were the key concepts to defeat the Ottomans. The well-known crusades were fought between the end of the eleventh century and the late thirteenth century.
Alejandro Alonso/ 1 Alejandro Alonso Ms. Evans English 4B 11/11/2015 Historical Continuity Investigation Project In this essay I am going to talk about how were The Crusades, how is ISIS, their differences and their similarities. The Crusades and ISIS are very separated in time, weapons way of fighting have developed a lot, other than that the 2 powerful groups are very similar. The Crusades had power in the Middle Ages and they made things that change our lives now, probably a family member of yours from thousands of years ago was in the war and now you are Christian because of that. The Crusades began in 1095 and they were finished by 1270. They started with and assembly of churchmen called Pope Urban II, they started in France and
The Christian View vs. The Muslim View of the Crusades The crusades were a set of different military actions that were sanctioned by the Catholic Church and the papacy. Their intention was to recapture Holy Lands they believed were rightfully theirs from the Muslim people that had invaded it. As any attack on a large group of people would do, every major group was affected. The Christians had their own reasons and beliefs for going on these Crusades.
Source A gives various reasons for participation in the First Crusade. These include for military leaders the gaining of power and territory and for the ordinary participants it was the deep religious fervour and the promise of absolution that drove them to join the Crusade. This view is convincing because Bohemond of Taranto did stay in the East and eventually became Bohemond of Antioch. There is also evidence that knights had to sell or mortgage land just to participate suggesting that maybe they were also planning to stay for the territory and power. Second Sons could also fit in this material motive because it was the idea that the first son in the family inherited all the money and land from his father and the Second Son was left
Religion and its various ideologies played a key role in advancing the authority of the Ottoman and Catholic Europe; it also influenced the way they confronted outside powers and people from other religions. The Ottomans where an Islamic ruled empire which brought about a certain ideology that gave them the God given rights to the earth. Catholic Europe also had this ideology from where God gave Peter the keys to the kingdom of heaven and endowed upon them earth as well (Matt 16: 19). The catholic church in Europe seemed to have their hands in the cookie jar of European Medieval Government and some what controlled the kings and nobles. On the other hand, the Ottoman Empire was completely controlled by Islamic warriors.
Frederick II The reading “Frederick II” is about an unusual emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. Frederick II was a man of great ability who was infatuated with nature. The biggest contributions of Frederick II were the effects of his battle against the Church. Frederick II began to clash with the church when he announced that he regarded Jesus, and for that matter all the other major religions, to be frauds. This was a radical idea in the middle ages, the Age of Faith.
During the Middle Ages, the church played an integral role in the lives of individuals. This is best demonstrated by the crusades, where an individual would have traveled to the Holy Land to secure the salvation of one 's ' soul by fighting the barbarians. Relics became connected to this practice, as the crusade acted as an alternative to a pilgrimage. One can observe the power relics had over individuals in the political sphere, as people would swear on them to make decisions, they upheld honor and commitment in war, and ultimately create a cycle of obtaining even more relics. Relics were widely sought-after commodities in the Middle Ages.
The crusades are the medieval military expeditions that pope Urban || issued to the European to stop fighting against each other and reclaim Jerusalem or the 'holy land" from the Muslims. Jerusalem was important as the saviour Jesus Christ was born there. The crusade started in the late 1000s to the 1500s. Pope Urban || convinced people to join the crusade with the promises of having their sins forgiven. Others joined for hopes of power, territory and riches.
spain, the most able government in Europe and the Americas, wished to enhance themselves with the New World 's trademark resources. In the wake of enslaving indigenous social orders in the Caribbean and the southern parts of the Americas to create and burrow for gold, silver, and distinctive assets, the Spanish moved into North America where they amassed their undertakings in what is by and by the southwestern and southeastern United States. Catholic priests drudged to change over the Indians to Christianity, and they experienced some accomplishment purifying through water and
The Crusades were a series of battles that, from the beginning, had religious undertones. At the beginning of the 11th century, the Byzantine emperor Alexios I called for Pope Urban II to help with the growing threat of Turkish presence. Pope Urban II responded immediately by convincing Catholic soldiers to gain access to and protect the Holy Land and holy sites that were under Muslim rule. This was the first of several Crusades that took place over a 200-year period. Historians disagree on the number of Crusades being seven or eight, but the last one in this 200-year span was started by King Louis IX of France.
Religion, specifically the rise and evolution of Abrahamic monotheism (Christianity, rabbinic Judaism, and Islam), is the defining characteristic, of this era. Religions of the Late Antique period were linked with power and entered into a weird dance between politics and faith. Imperial monotheism served as a rallying cry and the building block of empires. Religion was used equally as a tool for salvation, either of the individual or the community, and to justify law. Constantine and the Christians, the Jews of the Himyarite Dynasty in Arabia, the Manicheists who tried to court the Persians, and even the Zoroastrians who were keen to court their Iranian overlords, all sought to solidify their power, control, and government over regions of conquered peoples by using religion as an emulsifier of different tribal/cultural groups and a tool of state control.
