To further affect the empire, European powers chose an Ottoman strength and turned it into a weak point. Europeans monopolized trade with India and China and set high prices of goods sold in the empire, which greatly affected Ottoman trade and caused inflation in their economy. Moreover, the British, French, and Greek forces combined and were ready to fully take control over Thrace and Constantinople. The location of Constantinople was very significant to the Ottoman trade. In addition, Constantinople was very important to the Europeans as it was such a strong and important city during the Roman Empire.
Just a few short years before the Holy League launched a war against Venice (Britannica.com). The Venetians probably felt that they could not trust the people of the Holy League 100% because they had so easily declared war on them before. If I were Venice I would have a hard time trusting the people that went to war with me before. They may have also done it as a tactical plan. Or, Maybe their plan all along was to join the Holy League to gain the trust of all those powers whilst still keeping in touch with the French, then with the element of the surprise switch teams after learning the battle plans and ultimately win in the end.
However, he had no idea what attaining this goal would actually be like. During his time in the front with his comrades, he experienced death on an immense scale. Back home, he had been living in a bubble which was shielding him from the cruelty of the world; all of a sudden that bubble popped. This was all too overwhelming for Paul and he immediately became disillusioned. He realized that the path towards victory was not as exuberant as he had imagined and that he had to be willing to give up his life if necessary.
They both fail to think about what the consequences of their actions can be. There are many problems that can be foreseen. Cyrano could eventually get fed up with Christian getting all the benefits of the agreement, and tell Roxane the truth. Writing her letters won’t be enough, and he’ll want to be with her. Or, Christian will eventually want to have Roxanne to himself.
There they decided to launch an assault on Damascus, which was occupied by the Muslims at the time. Once again, they suffered a crushing defeat, after which the crusading army dissipated. For these reasons, the Second Crusade is considered a complete failure from a Christian standpoint. However, the crusaders were successful in one aspect of the Second Crusade on their campaign in the Iberian Peninsula, an event which has become one of the single most important events in the evolution of European
some of us know, the Crusades is not something that we enjoy discussing, but they were a big part of religious history. The Crusades were what the pope called “holy wars or expeditions,” that knights or people of their religion went on to gain control over holy land. Each Crusade had a social, economic, and/or political goal and aimed for one land at a time. The pope even exclaimed that if you went on a Crusade that you were assured a place in heaven. These Crusades, or “holy wars”, were driven by religious faith within varieties of religion like Muslims and Christians.
William Moraley’s failure in the American colonies was not due to laziness but being at the wrong place at the wrong time. His hard work and motivation to better his life just didn’t work in his favor. Even before his journey to America, Moraley had a string of bad luck. After his father’s death, he quarreled with his mother for his rightful fortune. But unable to acquire these funds he was reduced to poverty.
One reason a soldier would quit Valley Forge is the lack of food. The lack of food is a dreadful hardship the soldiers have to deal with. This hardship brings about not just hunger but many other factors. When you are hungry from the lack of food, you are weak and because you are weak you cannot fight well or deal with simple problems well. This effects basicly the whole war in a way.
Introduction: Provide background information on the Crusades, restate the DBQ question, state thesis with reasons. (include academic vocabulary and underline) The results of the Crusades was probably more negative than positive. In “Doc 4”, It states that “Moreover, the assault of one Christian people on another, when one of the goals of the Fourth Crusade was reunion of Greek and Latin churches, made the split between the Greek and Latin churches permanent.” The Crusades had a lot of hatred to the religions, and by 1204 the Crusaders had lost some of their appeal because the knights agreed to attack the Byzantine Capital instead.

The church was becoming more and more corrupt by the day. People were not focused on faith but relied on the “middle man” to reach God; in this case the middleman was the pope and the Catholic Church. Martin Luther disagreed with the corrupt system the church was conducting and was motivated to start a reform. The purpose of the ninety-five theses was not to accuse the pope or the Catholic Church but to question the actions being made. For example Martin Luther raises awareness of the following controversial thought, “Christians are to be taught that it would be the pope's wish, as it is his duty, to give of his own money to very many of those from whom certain hawkers of pardons cajole money, even though the church of St. Peter might have to be sold.” Luther is questioning not only the sales of indulgences but also why is the Pope using the money of the believers rather than his own money to build the church of St.Peters.
The question was who is going to control Sicily, Frederick, or the Pope. Frederick eventually embarked on his crusade and during the journey, his wife died, he also successfully negotiated a treaty with al-Kamil regaining the city of Jerusalem. Unfortunately, Frederick was now involved in another unpleasant political situation, this time in the Near East. Frederick left Jerusalem to resolve affairs in his Europe. Frederick’s crusade had a lasting effect as it showed a weakness in papal authority and a shift away from papal leadership towards secular ruler’s control.
Turkic ruler Saladin united the Muslim armies of South Asia and North Africa and has taken over Jerusalem. Three kings who have joined the crusade have not achieved much due to Emperor Frederick Barbarossa dying and King Phillip II returning to Europe. The lone king, King Richard I, failed to retake the city but instead has taken a deal from Saladin to keep control of the lands north of Jaffa. Pope Innocent III called for a new crusade that is being mostly led by French Knights. We set out for the Holy Lands in 1202 but the Knights became distracted with information by the Venetian lords about the wealth in Constantinople.
He argued that Christians will be disturbing the peace and those who do are rebelling and are disobedient. If you become disobedient to the king, you are also disobeying God. Boucher argues that if God wanted them to have independence they would have had it, and they should be grateful and thankful with our without it. He says “Obedience to government is every man’s duty because it is ever man’s interest; but it is particularly incumbent on Christians, it is enjoined by the positive commands of God.” (#32; pg. 101) Boucher had many unpersuasive arguments.
Since the people of this time were fairly religious this is one of the central arguments. Another argument presented for a separate American identity is wars within Europe, if Americans stayed attached to Europe then they would also suffer from the wars happening but if seek independence France would surely help out. The king will only cause wars, and more destruction to
Luther continued writing about salvation by faith alone as well as other reforms that he saw needed to occur in the church. As a result, the rift between Luther and those who wanted to defend the authority of the papacy, as well as to protect the lucrative source of income from the sale of indulgences, fueled a growing
