a. Trade and the advancement of technology both motivated and provided the means to the colonization and exploration across the seas. First, trading throughout Europe demonstrated a very profitable means of income for every nation, but the slow travel routes motivated the exploration of a new path to the desired destination. Trading had also provided the means of colonization because of the motivated exploration of new land. The development and advancement of new technologies had encouraged exploration because of the desire to demonstrate and test the new technologies such as the compass and gunpowder.
Another way islamic architecture improved the modern calligraphy and styles of today. This is shown in (Doc 6) because design are also parts of architecture that the Muslims improved. In conclusion the islamic achievement and advancement of math,astronomy/maps & architecture are the most important achievements because they affect us everyday from skyscrapers,rockets and even maps all are made by the generous contributions from the
Without the ships none of the explorations would have occurred. They had a lot of cause to why to explore and without the technology that made it way easier for them, they wouldn 't have made it so far. The Age of Exploration had a lot of new technologies and ideas growing out of the Renaissance, these included advances in cartography, navigation, and shipbuilding. Around this time Christopher Columbus started exploring. Around that time that marked the first encounter between Spaniards and the Native Americans.
Islam spread through trade. Muslim traders journeyed end to end of caliphate, exchanging good and information. Exchange brought Islam to west Africa, Europe, Southeast Asia. Mecca was a trade center because it was crossroads of the lucrative caravan trade. In Document A it shows the routes of the trade it expands to west Africa, Europe and Southeast Asia exchanging goods and information.
Advanced Muslims taught Europeans many different concepts. For example, Crusaders learned about how to advance their warfare tactics in order to succeed during battles. Europeans achieved different advancements because of them. Many people believe that Muslims are the reason why gunpowder came to Europe. They had advancements in medicine, which helped during fights if someone got hurt during wars; there were advancements in architecture, which was positive because they were able to build better castles.
One of the most well known astronomers of all time is Nicolaus Copernicus. He was known to think outside of the box and dreamt of bigger things in life. Copernicus did not see the world and its surroundings like everyone else did. Having such a brilliant mind helped him discover an important theory. Many scientists and astronomers would never see our solar system the same.
This topic was one of the many topics that I found quite interesting. When Europeans first arrived at the shores of the Americas, their main motivation was to find new land filled with riches, golden cities, and opportunities, and establish ideal communities based on the lives of early Christian saints. Many European settlers each had their own motivation to explore but they ultimately wanted one thing, access to more money. They treated people who were already living on that land as mere means to get what they wanted. The Columbian exchange was the stepping stone for the rise of industrialization in the new
Even though he didn’t invent the telescope, he was the first person to use the optical instrument to systematically study space. He also improved the telescope by learning about the device, and in the fall of 1609, he pointed it at the moon, and he discovered that it had craters and mountains. He invented an improved the telescope that let him observe the moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn, the phases of Venus, sunspots, and lunar surface. He also found out that Jupiter had moons. His discoveries disturbed the catholic church, but he preserved through the consequences, and now is a famous person in history.
However, it wasn’t only money that made Islam spread so quickly, it was also because information spread rapidly since people were so open to learning and discovery. Collectively this openness lead the Muslim people to read and learn from one another. They made many discoveries and created beautiful communities with hospitals and schools to spread their knowledge. The discovery of paper made it possible to create books which allowed the spread these ideas to anyone who could read. In conclusion, the Islamic Empire and the Muslim religion expanded quickly because they were powerful and smart conquerors who used new ideas of education and fairness in the way that they treated people, all of these creations and ideas improved the quality of the
In the 17th century, the two most notable influential people to me would be Galileo Galilei and Isaac Newton. Galileo Galilei talents lay in astronomy, through which he determined that heavenly bodies were not made of pure light, in fact: “He came to believe that the heavenly bodies might be of the same substance as earth, masses of matter moving in space” (Lecture Notes, Nadelhaft). Through his observations on planetary movement, Galileo was not only able to discover that celestial bodies were made out of matter, but was able to prove that the Earth was not the center of the universe and discovered mathematical laws that
