They killed and captured many people (doc 9). There was a fight without stop. The Age of Faith is another label as the Middle Age. Christianity spread throughout Europe during the Middle Ages. The church was trying to stop fighting for specific days like the feast day of the four seasons and every Saturday, Sunday, and Friday (doc 5).
In summary the middle ages were not a good period rather they were a time of darkness. To start, the Middle ages were a time of disease. The black plague swept through Europe during the middle ages. The black plague was spread by bites of infected rats and fleas, it was also transmitted pneumatically through the air (Black Death Presentation). It was devastating, the plague wiped out 20,000,000 people, that was nearly ⅓ of Europe’s population (Black Death Presentation).
However, the kingdom was plagued by civil war that made it vulnerable to Muslim attack. After 1244, Jerusalem would never again fall under Christian rule-but that did not stop the Crusaders from trying. King Louis IX of France led two more expeditions, grouped together as the Seventh Crusade, which failed to make any territorial gains. The last stronghold of Christendom in the Holy Land, Acre, fell to the Mamluk Empire in 1291. In 1212, religious zeal as well as poverty gave rise to what came to be known as the Children’s Crusade.
Europe was not in a "dark age" really and it did improve Europe's food and population grew bigger which meant more farming. One example, is from document A which is that Europe was still in control and there was still laws. "No man shall be forced to perform more service for a knight's fee. "Another example, from document C is that Europe still had plenty of food and population grew. "Europe developed and prospered."
Tokugawa Japan + Medieval Europe Medieval Europe and Tokugawa Japan lived in seclusion to each other, and yet there were many uncanny similarities between Tokugawa Japan and Medieval Europe. In Medieval Europe there were many key features of the social system that were introduced at the time. The social system of Medieval Europe was called Feudalism.

The mostly represents that they stand out more. Both kings look upright and with a strong character and personality. From looking at the statue he seems very powerful, respected and obeyed by others. From what I read in the wall text he had a lot of followers that looked up to him and advised him when he needed it. As he was from a long a long time ago I can infer that he also had many servants and slaves, I’m sure that some people didn’t like him for that reason.
During the Dark Ages, the European continent was in ruins. There were multiple wars going around the continent by different tribes who were trying to take total control of the land. The people living in that time period did not have a chance to obtain knowledge or live in a peaceful society. Things were about to change very soon because the light was going to shine onto Europe. The Frankish kingdom was going to be ruled by the 1st powerful king of all of European history.
King Henry VIII was one of the most impactful and controversial leaders of his time. He was the second ruler of England from the Tudor line, and he officially came to power in 1509. Henry VIII used his European power to eventually separate from the Catholic Church and formed the Church of England which caused major controversy and a power exchange. The monarch of England ruled for over four decades and was the primary instigator of the Reformation. Although King Henry VIII was a devout Catholic, his thirst for power, selfish motives, and desire for independence all contributed to the separation from the Catholic Church and forming the Church of England.
The southerners thought northerners were crude, arrogant, uncultured, and aggressive. Differences in these cultures would cause that war to be long and harsh. However, for the men who would join this crusade, distance and time would be a large motivation for contributing in the war. The Pope was allowing for crusaders to fight for the forty days to receive some form of penitence. Many would see this as a large opportunity to help fight for the Pope and not have to go completely overseas.
