There were early attacks on Constantinople that the Byzantines were able to hold off. In holding off the various attacks, the Byzantines kept Western Civilization Christian instead of it being converted to Muslim. The Christian Church of Constantinople and the Christian Church of Rome also split due to an argument over some spiritual interpretations of the Bible. If it was not for the Byzantines most of Western Civilization would be Muslim and not Christian.
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
Subsequently, it had many enemies and allies. Ottomans were not considered part of Europe due to having a different religion and culture, even though the Ottomans flaunted that they accept and welcome Christianity. However, they associated in the European diplomacy. Christian countries such as France and England reached out to the Ottomans when dealing with their regional rivals. In July 1509, the Venetian Senate enlisted the Ottomans for military help against France.
Crusades were military expeditions that occurred during the twelfth and thirteenth century. The Crusaders were in conflict with Islam for thousands of years. The main reason and goal for the crusades were to conquer the Holy Land, Jerusalem. However, they were not able to achieve that goal. The Crusaders were unsuccessful in the short-term; however, they were successful in the long-term.
The rapid growth and establishment of an Islamic empire started in the seventh century and has continued to exist in todays world. The swiftness of the Arab conquests led to an establishment of an Islamic empire that has lasted to present times because the diminishing power of the Roman Empire led to a Western European cultural deterioration and a declining influence of Christianity. The establishment and growth of the Islamic empire will be illustrated in this paper, along with an explanation of what happened to the Islamic influence in Hispania, now modern-day Spain. The establishment of an Islamic state began with the Prophet Muhammad leading a group of Muslims on a migration from Mecca to a northern rural settlement, now referred to as Madina. Before the death of the Prophet Muhammad in 632, Muhammad converted most of the Arabian tribes to Islam, and Mecca became the new Islamic state’s capital.
Ferdinand and Isabella conquer the Granada from the Moors (Muslims) which gave them the title Catholic Kings in 1492. This ordered and Jews and Muslims to convert to Christianity. They tortured the heretics that did not convert to catholic finally all Jews and Muslims who refused to convert were banned from Spain. The Jews and Muslims could practice their own religion but it had to be secretly done. Isabella sponsored the voyage of Christopher Columbus which brought money to Spain and a new world.
In 1588, the English defeated the Spanish Armada which allowed them to colonize in the North America. While they were in North America the English tried to establish two joint-stock companies, Virginia and Massachusetts. Three colonial regions were established in doing so; New England, Middle Colonies, and Southern Colonies. Due to their geography, economy, and religion led the two colonies, New England and Southern Colony, to become very diverse from one another. New England Colonies and the Southern Colonies developed into two diverse regions because of their differences in geography.
Jamestown and Plimoth were the first two successful English colonies in North America. Jamestown was established in 1607 and Plymouth in 1620. These two colonies were different yet had a number of striking similarities in how they were operated under Christianity, and suffered through disease and starvation, and they had conflicts with the Natives. The differences between the settlements of Plimoth and Jamestown are the locations, reasons for the colony, early setbacks, religious differences, governments, and relations with Indians. The colonies of Plimoth and Jamestown were both operated under Christianity.
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.

During this chapter I learned about The Crusades of the Christian army. After learning about The Crusades I was surprised and a little discouraged. I learned how the Church was so commercialized and greedy. I didn’t find too many accomplishments come from The Crusades besides the opening of Western traders to conduct business abroad. Overall, the terror and massacres that resulted from The Crusades enlightened my knowledge of characteristics of individuals during The High Middle Ages of Western
