Under Hammurabi the Babylonians had a set of laws, and the Egyptians excelled at writing. In the Middle Kingdom, gods were believed to care for all of its people and not just the Divine Monarch (Wallech, 2013, p. 60). The rulers cared for the kingdom 's people which showed a sharp change in attitudes toward people. No longer was the ruler placed on a pedestal and treated like untouchable royalty. Treating citizens as a part of society assisted Egypt in growing and becoming successful in trade, writing and protecting itself.
The king promoted Amun as the state cult and appointed the chief priest who, in his turn, supported the king. The king’s royal wife, as his chief consort, played an influential role in the Priesthood as God’s wife of Amun. This religious role was an important step in Hatshepsut’s rise to prominence. The highest-ranking female in the land was the ‘kings-great wife’ and in the early New Kingdom Hatshepsut also exercised great influence in her role as ‘God’s Wife of Amun’. Her role as God’s Wife of Amun, while she was the chief consort of Thutmose II, would have gained her the support of the Amun priesthood.
They both excelled and revolutionized the social, political, and religious aspects of their empires. The Romans revolutionized the democratic system of government and ended up giving the lower class of people all the power in the society. Christianity became a big role in their system and the split between the Plebeians and the Patricians helped keep the system balanced to a point. In Han China the class system helped the empire run very smooth. The balance between the rulers and the lower class workers and the artisans helped make sure every task was accomplished and was done efficiently.
Slave society can promote social productive forces developing faster; the master class occupies all the production data and holds the slave. Therefore, I can construe slaves equal to money, the more slaves you have the more money and resource you will gain. Everyone likes money without exception includes the founding fathers of America. For example, Benjamin Franklin is one of founding fathers who against slavery. In fact, he still hired numerous slaves work for him.
it’s important because culture and society plays huge roles in everyday life. And the fact that is some very strong cultures that stick together and have a very family like community, and I respect that one hundred percent.When doing this assignment I figured that based off what we have been talking about in class, That the Egyptian culture was very interesting to me, it 's said that Ancient Egypt was among the earliest civilizations in Africa.Egypt maintained a unique, complex and stable culture that influenced later cultures of Europe. In this paper I will discuss, ancient monuments such as Pyramids, to the egyptian foods, the way they dressed. One thing that is very known when you think of Egyptian culture is the great monuments such as pyramids. When looking at such great structures like Pyramids you began to question how were they made.
Rulers held the highest position in the social class they had the most rights and were able to tell people to do things (creating). Rulers actively took part in religious ceremonies,rulers most likely did that because they wanted people to know that they are still religious (Aztec class structures). Rulers made all the decisions about the government since they were the highest class (creating). The upper class includes rulers, warriors,nobles, merchants, and artisans, nobles could have been royal families, lords, and priests (Aztec class structures). Artisans were able to get rich since merchants could have been able to trade or sell their art (Burstein 417).
Ancient Egypt was an advanced civilization because it had indicators of civilization. The Egyptian government was highly advanced for their time. It was ruled by the pharaoh. The Pharaoh had help from other officials including Viziers, nomarchs, and other officials. In court, the judge ruled the court as the Pharough watched them.
For centuries civilization has evolved and spread across the globe, causing for many cultures, traditions, and especially religions to develop. Even in ancient societies such as Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt, religion was one of, if not, the most important aspect of an individual 's life. The religions found in Mesopotamia and ancient Egypt would shape how relationships within society functioned, including how communities related themselves to the divine and the role of leaders and priests. Furthermore, these religions would also affect how each of these societies thought about justice and even influenced attitudes toward the afterlife.
Furthermore, the incorporation of religion was very important for the Indian people, because much like the Mesopotamians, they felt religion was to be tremendously necessary. From all the data we have collected we can conclude the Indians were a very potent civilization. Here our adventure ends, we have learned much, and most salient is that all these were well over being a
The Great Pyramids in Egypt were built not only by slaves, but by high class Egyptians as well. There is a lot of evidence to back the claim, for example many slaves were used to build almost every building in Egypt, so saying they built the pyramids as well isn't too far fetched. Some Evidence that high class Egyptians built the pyramids were that when some workers died they were honorably buried near the pyramids. Slaves would not have been buried in such a way due to their social status. Slaves had to work and others had to keep the slaves in check and this might be where the high class Egyptians worked.
