Ideas were spreading rapidly and new trade occurred as well as travel. And what if Persia got to rule the world? We would not be the same today. Darius III might not have supported scientific development like Alexander, or would have showed as much kindness as he did, or would have been as inspiring as him. Our world would be completely different if Alexander had not been so
The cultivation of the West opened the door for many things, tempting suitors searching for a new life to toss everything behind them in order to explore the new land. While it worked out better for some than others, the end product has grown into a rich, strong society. Most of those suitors were from Spain or England, but Western Civilization also takes a lot of inspiration from ancient Greece and Rome. Greek culture’s use as a blueprint for most aspects of Western Civilization becomes clear when analyzing and comparing its influence on the development of christianity, structure of government, and influence in literature. Early on in its history, Greece had little to no established laws or leaders.
These expeditions sparked new political, religious, and economic developments for the world. The crusades were a huge accomplishment for the people of Christian faith because new people began to convert. Without the start of the crusades by Pope Urban II, the entire view of the Roman Catholic church would be completely different now. Christianity would not have been a very popular religion, and Europe would not be viewed as a dominant
Treating citizens as a part of society assisted Egypt in growing and becoming successful in trade, writing and protecting itself. In Babylonia, the people were treated as sacred to the kingdom while outsiders were viewed as alien (Wallech, 2013, p.43). The Middle Kingdom subjects now had a place in the afterlife, formerly reserved for rulers and royalty. In Babylonia, humans teamed
and Plutarch. Plutarch’s Lives. (c.46-120; Bernadotte Perrin.) it tells of Alexander’s efforts to lead his army and to build his empire. Alexander the great’s military organization from the passages was very diverse and one nation did not get along with the with other nations within the army, Alexander uses the military structure to unite by placing foreign soldiers in army formations with the Greek soldiers, Alexander tried to change the relationship between the Greeks and the Persians by having a big feasts, sharing drinks, and singing with one another.
Hernan Cortes significantly contributed to the Renaissance by giving Spain money/ spreading Spanish culture and power, and encouraging exploration. Cortes earned Spain money by conquering Central and South America. It was cruel and horrible for the people living in the area, but it gave artisans (craftsperson), merchants, and artists who supplied Spain with goods. Another achievement Cortes is credited with is, spreading the rule of Spain; he conquered the Aztecs (if he hadn’t they may still be in our society and our history would be completely different. ), Cortes also built New Mexico in the New World.
Around 3500 to 3100 BCE, the rise of civilizations occurred in two different regions; one in Mesopotamia, another in Egypt. Mesopotamia was a vast open region between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. Egypt was an isolated region along the Nile that runs from South to North. Blessed by the surrounding rivers, these two remarkable ancient civilizations of Mesopotamia and Egypt developed socially, politically and culturally with unique features. Both Mesopotamia and Egypt were similar in having a social class system to distinguish between different classes, as well as people’s value towards religion, and finally having the ability to pass information effectively.
By sharing ideas with other regions and utilizing a new technology to build better weapons, battle weapons grew to include bows and arrows, shields, sickle swords, daggers, and spears made from bronze, stone, and iron. Ancient Egypt built a dominant army. Egypt’s economy was thriving from the increase in trading and abundant resources. However, this thriving industry came to a close when Ancient Egypt found itself at the mercy of Maryannu. Over the decades, Egypt experienced various military conflicts including the Egyptian Revolution, First Arab-Israeli War, the Anglo-Egyptian War, Wahabi War, Turko-Egyptian War, Sanusi Revolt in Egypt, War of Attrition and many more.
The Assyrians formed militarism, had an empire reach from Persian gulf to the Nile river, and this lead to the first universal empired formed. The Persians spanned countless lands from Persian gulf to Nile river, and started a new language for people. Some might ask what’s the relevance of the Western Civilization towards religion ? In my opinion it plays a big role because churches lead to social service. This brings Art, Philosophy and science into the civilization.
This notion was premeditated as emperor Constantine could see the potential within it especially in regards to maintaining dominance over surrounding powers. To illustrate, “relocation enabled him to maintain close watch over the Sasanid empire in Persia and the Germanic peoples who lived along the lower stretches of the Danube River” (337). Although this new capital may have initially been for military purposes it was evident it had the capability for something beyond that. It was going to become a trading centre as its location was ideal for it. The city had access to the Mediterranean Sea and Russia thus, leading to exposure to various trading partners.
Consequent to his death, Alexander the Greats empire that he built ruptured into three separate kingdoms, these kingdoms later broke into more smaller states. However, even though Alexander’s kingdom did not last long, his influence did. Alexander the Great formed a huge empire, which spread Greek culture into Egypt and many parts of Asia, and paved the way for new civilizations to develop. Alexander encouraged blending of cultures in areas he conquered, created new cities for example, Alexandria in Egypt. Alexander encouraged people from other parts of the empire to move to these cities and lastly, Cultural Diffusion led to the formation of Hellenistic Culture blending of Greek, Persian, Egyptian, and Indian cultures.
Alexander the Great had a big impact on spreading the Hellenistic culture because he spread literature, art, warfare techniques, and so much more. A few examples on how he spread the Hellenistic culture to the western area is, the library of Alexandria. The writing of the Greeks were spread, which are still used today. He spread most of these by conquering the other areas, naming most of them Alexandria, and when the Greeks moved there, the culture would spread from that city to another city around that area causing the Greek culture to spread everywhere in the western areas that Alexander the Great
After the capture of Constantinople, the Ottoman Empire changed the name to Istanbul and began to expand rapidly thereafter. The Ottomans had originally used an army that had two separate forces, one was a light cavalry and the other volunteer infantry. Throughout the Ottomans expansion, they rapidly improved their military strength through the use slave troops known as Janissaries. The Ottomans bordering neighbor was the Safavid Empire. The Safavid Empire under the rule of Shah Ismail tried to control the masses with political propaganda, which used various stories of their choosing to explain the events that unfolded however they desired.
I think that meant that Muhammad remained going toward established as part of the government. Another way that the Empire expanded is by winning over people and traveling throughout the world spreading religions all over the world. For example, another way is by Muhammad is being
Without military, trade may not have been as popular as it was. To conclude, military was the main reason for the spread of Islam. Between vast Muslim rule, The Pact, and the Muslims victory at the battle of Yarmouk, it is clear that the military set the pace for Islam’s rapid development and growth. In doing this Islam had overruled the majority of the middle east by
