In history, Christians held Muslims to a threatening status before the crusades even began. In fact, the chances that the Christians met Muslims greatly improved their overall idea of them. During the crusades trade wasn’t allowed to be exchanged in fear of the Christians that would be excommunicated for associating with the Islams, even though trade still continued throughout the Crusades regardless. Politically the religious impact from the Crusades was in the massive expenditures that created an overwhelming effect on European politics. The crusades had massive armies that needed to be transported across extensive amounts of land which costed large sums of money.
Christian missionaries have participated in imperialist domination of the Native Americans and Asians, in the past, by imposing cultural changes on native populations in the name of religion. They have succeeded in removing their cultural identities. The technological disparity between the new world and the old world allowed for the west to gain a distinct psychological advantage over the new world. Most of the European missionaries during the colonial era were Catholic. That was partly because two Catholic countries, Spain and Portugal, took the lead in exploration.
The major reason for the spread of Christianity was because it was of Emperor Constantine interest and since he was the emperor of the Roman Empire, which was the world 's largest empire, there was a massive expansion of Christianity.
to 1450 C.E also transformed the values primary religions like Buddhism and Christianity. For example, both Christianity and Buddhism became far more materialistic. Due to the trading and popularity of fine materials such as silk on the Silk Road, silk covers and wall hangings became commonplace in the previously more modest Christian faith. Also, due to the rapid spread of ideas via the Silk Road, Christians began to incorporate more Roman thought and Greek philosophy into their faith. Both of these changes have held true until current day.
Churches were tax exempt and bishops became powerful. They were governors of the poor and even judges for small disputes. Constantine and his successors were impressed by the unity and expansionist goals of the Christian Church and wanted to increase the unity of his empire by fostering the universal outreach of the Christian church. The legacy of Constantine included his conversion to Christianity and the conversion to Christianity of the Roman Empire.
Colonialism in Latin America was always there, but over time the type of colonial mindset changed. There were many forms of what coloniality left, ranging from La otra conquista, where the Spanish main goal to convert the Aztecs to Christianity, The Mission in which the Guarani were depicted as giving into the faith without a fight, Camila which is a dictator/patriarchal society and lastly, Embrace of the Serpent, where Westerners, specifically the United States, tried pushing their own agenda in Latin America. In conclusion, the legacy that colonialism had left in Latin America continued to thrive and prosper far after the very first
Part of the incentive to discover and inhabit North America came from men like George Peckham and Richard Hakluyt who penned long persuasive pleas/advertisements that would occasionally urge the monarchy and the affluent to back English exploration and colonisation. Hakluyt, in his ‘Discourse of Western Planting’, tries to convince the then queen, Elizabeth I, that voyages to this new continent will bring many benefits. “that this western voyage will yield unto us all the commodities of Europe, Africa, and Asia as far as we were want to travel and supply the wants of all our decayed trades.” “This enterprise will be for the manifold employment of numbers of idle men, and for breeding of many sufficient and for utterance of the great quantity of the commodities of our Realm.” While many of these colonies were unsuccessful, even disastrous, most notably Roanoke under Walter Raleigh, The French, and Spanish suffered similar setbacks such as fort Caroline and the Ajacán mission.
Julius Caesar was a Roman Genius and Mastermind because of his intelligence in war and strategies to gain power, and also because the way he could shift the roman Government and roman people to his favor. According to History.com, when Julius Caesar was starting to become
This season of the British society was widely viewed as an evolution from evil to good by the rest of the surrounding areas, where Christianity was already a common belief system.

Beowulf was one of the many stories that were orally passed down to entertain and teach lessons to the future offsprings of the Old English language. These stories were of battles that were similar to the events going on within the society. Villainous monsters and demons were much like the sliver of the population that still believed and practiced Animism, which is closely related to witchcraft.
The two religions relied heavily on trade routes to grow and expand. Christianity spread almost accidentally by word of mouth through the silk road, the largest trade route in Eurasia at the time. Traders and other travelers spread the word of Christianity through the silk road and all of Europe, subsequently. Meanwhile Islam spread through the Indian Ocean trade route, a trade route created thanks to the development of larger ships, which allowed for much faster trade and spread of ideas, such as Islam, on the sea’s rather than across land. If these trade routes had never been allowed to develop or flourish, it can only be assumed that both Islam and Christianity would have remained very isolated and that their spread would have remained very limited.
The nomadic style of the Mongols would prevent them from deeming anything they plundered in Asia useful to them, so they send it west via the Silk Road to trade in Europe. Development resumed and alternate routes were found across the Indian Ocean, which allowed for large amounts of goods to be shipped much more safely, directly to Europe. This would be the slingshot that gets Europe out of the Middle Ages a few hundred years later with the development of gunpowder, and the printing press. Gunpowder would give central government much more power and remove power from nobles, and the printing press would facilitate the spread of information much faster to many more people. Nobles knew they were getting pinched out of power, mentioned in the Bohemund at Antioch, “At last, all the noble leaders who were at Constantinople were assembled.
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.

The world American colonies changed and became more complex. The population in the English colonies increased greatly and most of the immigrants came from England and. The economy was built on and by trade and this increased economic wealth through the Atlantic. The American religious and cultural life changed because they were pushing Christianity to the natives and salves.
Difficulties as a Christian We live on a very diverse continent that all began during the early settlements (15 – 50BC). This early settlement began with the Bering straight, this brought over early migrants with completely different cultures to establish land in the western hemisphere. New England was settled by stable families and supported by agriculture; they had a healthier climate and a stronger religious government. However after the land was starting to be established during the 1620’s religious disputes started to establish between the puritans, separatists, Anglicans, and Christians. Every settler coming across on a ship expressed different religious views and the rules along with the regulations to follow within that religion were all different and based on Constructing The American Past rules within any religion were taken very seriously and a harsh punishment was given if anyone did not obey.
