The environment condition was bad with smokes surrounding them. The release of harmful gases into the air from factories pollutes the world 's air, doing harm to the environment, further leading to global warming. Then, though it did boost many job opportunities, the living condition of the workers during the industrialization were poor. Company towns owned by business were rented out to employees. The owners forced them to live in isolated communities near workshops and forced them to buy goods with high interests.
After the Medieval Era in Europe, Europeans began to adopt a fresh way of thought which helped propel Italy and other European countries into the Renaissance. After the Black Death swept across Europe people began to stray away from the church. Countless people were upset that the Church could not stop the Black Death from spreading and killing almost two-thirds of Europe 's population. Thus, people began to adopt a new way of thought which lead to the revival of classic Greco-Roman work and the study of humans and their accomplishments rather than focusing on religious figures. Europeans began to change their way of thinking after the Medieval Era by focusing on the importance of education, creating a secular society rather than a religious one and reviving the arts of classical civilizations and focused on the accomplishments of humans.
Immigrants from Europe were pulled to New York in hope to find what the Americans had said they’d offer. Freedom, new jobs, and cheap land were a few things that lured them into New York. It started when the Great Railroad Strike of 1877 was set in motion. It was random people who began to strike destroying property. The people were furious about what had happened in 1873 worried about the depression that was coming.
While Smallpox caused a disruption of faith upon the natives, the plague caused a disruption of faith upon the Catholics. During the time of smallpox, the natives were dying in incredibly large numbers and none of their medicine men could save them. This undeniably changed their spirituality. They were convinced that the European’s God was better, since the Europeans were not dying, and they began to attend Catholic churches. Quite the opposite during the plague, the Catholics were the ones questioning their faith this time around.
The attacks on the railways and waterways, as mentioned above, not only affected the German economy but also the German army. The equipment that had been produced was difficult to move from the factory to the front line and there was also limited space on the trains to move the men themselves. Whilst not entirely as a result of Allied Strategic Bombing, 80% of the German army was horse-drawn. This lack of transportation hindered the army from reaching its full capabilities thereby limiting their performance in the war and as such it seems that allied strategic bombing of the transport infrastructure was highly successful in achieving its objective of impacting and hindering other areas of the German war effort. The bombing also delayed the use of Hitler’s Vergeltungswaffe rockets.
Through the loss of one-third of Europe’s population, a tiny pathogen toppled the region’s socio-economic framework, altering the medieval society forever. Although the negative effects of the pandemic are greater than the positive effects, it is argued that the disease balanced Europe’s population for the future. The disease portrayed the might of European continent, including its will to withstand a crisis. To this end, it could be hard to believe but there were also some positive consequences associated with the Black Death. As it appears, manpower was of great value than it was before.
The Black death, along with taking down Europe’s economy, also affected the way of life, and the church’s power. When the black death struck the church also started to lose it’s power. People started to abandon the church 's and piety, for more self indulgent ways of life such as Hedonism(Green). Also, the people became angry with the church not being able to deal with the problem which lead to people not believing in the clergy, which is known a anticlericalism. This also lead to protestant reformation when the church really lost it’s power(Green).
During the 16th century in Europe, The Protestant Reformation caused people to almost completely reject the previous traditions of Catholic art. They even occasionally destroyed what they could reach of it. A new artistic tradition came along. This moved away significantly from the Southern European tradition (as well as the humanist art during the High Renaissance). But, the Catholic Counter Reformation reacted poorly to Protestant criticism of the art in Roman Catholicism to produce a style of Catholic art.
The Working Class in the Industrial Revolution The Industrial Revolution changed the world with its innovations which changed the lives of humans, how people live, work, and survive. One of the things that the Industrial Revolution impacted was the British working class. The Industrial Revolution did help people and some of its effects were positive such as giving workers stable jobs, but mostly the Industrial Revolution brought a lower standard of living for the working class. The negative effects the Industrial Revolution had on workers' lives were the inhumane working conditions, injuries they suffered, and poor living conditions. All of these negative effects outweigh the positive effects and make it a time that was terrible for the working class.
Since church played a big role back in the day in their everyday life they believed the black death was the end of time. “Perhaps the black death weakened faith in traditional medieval Catholic spirituality and set off a quest for a deeper naturalistic understanding of human psychology and behavior and the expressions of a more personal sensibility (Cantor, page 25. )” The black death meant various things depending on who you asked in that time. The Catholics did not have a clear understanding of how severe this disease was. As it was thought to be a sign that God was coming down to punish people for their sins.
Civil society tends to adhere to the common good, not by governmental enforcement, but in the interest of mediating institutions of society. These institutions are the religious bodies that represent the religious freedom of the people. The mediating institutions refer to the church and the body of religious believers; they serve as the buffer between religious freedom and law. Since the writings of the American Constitution, society has been granted the freedom of religious expression. However, this was not in the interest of society converting everyone to their own beliefs, but a statement in good faith to maintain peace among the people.
Black Plague Outbreak in Western Massachusetts If the Black Plague were to infect the people of Western Massachusetts I would stay in my home. The risk of catching the disease is even greater if you were to travel to different parts of the world. The plague is spread with contamination, with animals, human beings and more. You have the risk of coming in contact with contaminated animals or beings, such as rats and mosquitoes. The black plague was a very successful disease in the mid 1350’s due to the low medical ability and knowledge of the people populating the city or town.
