Therefore, after the war there different opinions were propagated by writers as whether the crusades could be justified or not. Some consider the rescuing of Christians from persecution and invasion as a just cause for war. Nevertheless, crusaders primarily focused on dispossessing or retaking land Muslims. Therefore, crusades had their mark on the books history, and many historians have attempted to justify why they could or could not be justified. However, many historians have a consensus that crusades represent a very dark chapter in the history of Christians containing many evils that were carried out in the name of Christ.
However, over successive years, there were religious and linguistic barriers that prevented further cooperation and inhibited any trials for re-union. Furthermore, the eastern province became more powerful and fortified its boundaries and this diverted the barbarian attacks towards the western empire. Most historians believe that the Barbarians at northern boundaries of the Rome’s empire were the most significant
This later proved to be successful in later years for nurturing world leading scientists for their time.The officials were also known for their achievement in literature and arts. This helped them formulate policies for trade with other countries at the time as well as they introduced new weapons such as rockets and mortars. Of course, there were struggles such as war. Such as the Liao Empire in the northeast for them was a military threat, the Northern Song court wanted to regain the land of the Western Xia. They were also in a conflict with the Viets in the southeast.
During the early 700’s, Charles Martel took over in Latin Christendom, his Frankish kingdom of Christians. Martel’s kingdom was under threat of a rapidly spreading religion, Islam. This led to many battles between Christians and Muslims, but the most significant one was the Battle of Tours, 723 AD. Martel lead his army against the Muslims to attempt to stop them from progressing further into Europe, and he does. Without Christianity, this event would have never happened.
When Europe invaded the Arabs in the 11th century, they turned their newfound weapon on the European troops, which initially sparked fear, interest and high demand on the West, who were very induced in war. The secret of gunpowder soon traveled back to Europe along with stories of its detrimental force. However at the time, there was scarce interest in science and discovery in Europe, which made gunpowder quite useless. Soon after the crusades pioneered in European exploration, gunpowder became an aid rather than an obstruction. The tradition, hand-to-hand combat was non-existent, and gunpowder and the
As I explained, people want more power and started wars with other countries. Napoleon, who helped the development of Nationalism, gave people a voice to keep the idea of a nation, so they supported the country and to conquer other countries in Europe. Napoleon was a successful leader and conquered many countries, but his ideas of nationalism also worked against him, because other countries also developed Nationalism, which caused wars and battles.

Sullivan did an in-depth analysis on many main ideas. He backed most of arguments with plenty of excerpts from “The Way to Wealth”, and included many reliable outside sources. The only negative, as mentioned above, was the fact he did not include the contradicting proverbs in his analysis. If Sullivan had included examples of one of his main points, his analysis would be very helpful. Although he failed to support that main point, the rest of his arguments would be hard to dispute considering the amount of support he was able to gather.
The Maya built towering stone temples and palaces for their religious rituals and political activities. They developed the 365-day calendar and researched in math and measurements to calculate the specific days of their religious ceremonies and to calculate their construction work. The Inca created a large road network which had given the Inca soldiers, information, and merchants easier and quicker access to travel around the large empire. They advanced in medical practices in similar forms of modern day antiseptics and anesthesia which had helped their civilization achieve a better quality of
Paracelsus is well known for his studies and practice of medicine and because of him and his records other alchemistss came along later and continued to develop his methods and that brings me to Oswald Croll, who followed Paracelsus path and bettered the world and made the understanding of medicine greater and made the medicine that we use today stronger and more efficient. Now some of you may think that James Price is only known for killing himself after claiming to be able to turn mercury and silver into gold, but he his studies were close to actually being right. Why is he important in the study of alchemy? Well even though his theory wasn't totally correct it was close and actually helped people realize that by mixing the right elements in the correct solution you could change their physical appearance which has potentially led us to finding other cool mixtures that react and stuff like that. Even though his theory was wrong later on they found out that it is indeed possible to turn very small amounts of mercury and silver into gold but the bad part is that it takes a whole lot only to make a little bit of gold.
“Were the Crusades successful in achieving their aim of reclaiming Jerusalem and maintaining the Christian presence in the Middle East (Anatolia) and the Crusader States, and how are the Crusades relevant/similar to recent events taking place in the Middle East such as America’s war on Terror and Jihadism.” The Crusades were a series of holy wars declared by the officials of the Catholic Church on the Muslim expansion and Seljuk Turks who had taken over the holy lands. Crusaders were sent off to Israel to reclaim these lands and strengthen the Christian presence in Anatolia however they were not successful in maintaining their holds and crusades following the first crusades can be considered failures. The First crusade was declared by Pope
