World History Homework Six Answers - Student Seventeen
1. Identify the time period of the Middle Ages, and when the Crusades occurred within that period. The Middle Ages was a period of time between A.D. 500 to 1500. The crusades took place between A.D. 1096 to 1291.
2. Who conquered the largest contiguous region in world history, and when? Chinggis (Genghis) Khan dominated the most land in history from 1206 to 1227. He is regarded as a military genius by many historians today.
- Correct again!
3. Which of these modern countries were able to establish nation-states in the Middle Ages, and which were not: Germany, France, England and Italy? France, and England were able to establish nation-states, while Germany and Italy were not due to failure to cooperate and infighting between city-states.
- Correct, could use as a model.
4. Pick your favorite medieval architecture and describe something about it. I like the Gothic style because it has an open look, and that makes it interesting to the eye. It also includes a labyrinth, which is a maze-like channel of hallways.
- Superb, could use as a model.
H3. Do you think Joan of Arc had a calling from God? I do not think she was called directly by God, but maybe she had problems with things in her life that made her want to do something of value, and being the leader of the French army may have been just that. I am most likely wrong about this matter, but this is my view of it.
- It's fine to have an opinion! Good.
6. Pick your favorite aspect of Scholasticism, and describe something about it, or your view of it. My favorite aspect of this was that it uses careful thinking…but this is not all, it triggered a thought in my mind: I couldn’t think of any religion other than Christianity that could stand up to a logical test.
- Superb statement, will use as a model!
7. Current events: What was the biggest effect of the Crusades in the Middle Ages, and why do people avoid using the term "Crusade" today? It aided in ending the Middle Ages, which is sort of an “effect” on it. It also strengthened Christianity and most likely made the Christians feel more unified.
- Superb insights! Could use more than one of your answers as a model. Well done: 70/70.--Andy Schlafly 19:29, 15 March 2009 (EDT)
