    2 sons became Kings of England

17
The power
  • By the middle/late Middle Ages power fell into
    the hands of the spiritual leader (Pope) and
    political leader (king).
  • Pope seen as Gods rep. on Earth- got power from
    God and people
  • If people disagreed with the Pope he would
    EXCOMMUNICATE them!
  • King usually had power/things/land from family

18
  • In the mid 900s AD- pope gave the emperor ( of
    Charlemagnes empire) approval to rule- now
    called Holy Roman Empire ( pope lives in Rome)
  • Did not inherit crown-were elected by nobles-
    which led to fights and trickery!

19
The Pope steps in
  • Pope Leo IX believed all religious officials
    should answer to the Pope b/c everyone did answer
    to the first pope ( St. Peter) then all should
    answer to every Pope
  • 1054 AD Constantinople's bishop refused to do
    this so Leo excommunicated him thus began the
    Eastern Orthodox Church
  • 1073 Pope Gregory VII vs. Emperor Henry IV

20
Breaking up is hard to do!
  • 1054 Christian church split
  • Constantines church Eastern Orthodox Rome
    Roman Catholic

21
Crusades
  • A Long series of wars between Christians and
    Muslims in SW Asia over control of Palestine
  • Holy Land to both
  • Turkish Muslims were attacking any Christians who
    visited Jesus town
  • Turks raided the Byz. Empire- so the Emp asked
    the Pope for help!

22
Crusades
  • 1045 Pope Urban II called for a Christian
    Pilgrimage (1st Crusade) to Jerusalem to capture
    it back from Muslim Turks
  • 1291- last crusade
  • Crusade- Latin for marked with a cross

23
1
  • 1st Crusade 1096- 5000 Crusaders left Europe for
    the HL- the peasant crusaders (pc) attacked Jews
    in Germany- blamed them for Jesus death- most of
    the pcs were killed before they reached
    Jerusalem
  • Nobles reached J and took it over- set up 4 small
    towns and traded with Europe
  • BUT.. Within 50 years Muslims began taking land
    back thus the second Crusuade

24
2 and 3
  • 1147- French and Germans set out to retake the
    Holy Land again
  • Poor planning and heavy troop loss led to a
    disaster

25
3
  • 1189- Muslims had recaptured all of the HL- The
    French, German, English, and HRE led armies in-
    But the German king died, French King and HRE
    left- so that left King Richard I( the
    Lionhearted) to battle with Saladin ( Muslim
    leader)
  • Both were respected but overall, Saladin kept
    Jerusalem for the Muslims

26
4
  • 1201- French Knights set out this time- from
    Venice- and in order to pay for the trip they had
    to capture Zara for the HRE
  • Instead of going to Jerusalem- they got
    sidetracked and ransacked Constantinople (
    another Christian city) and never made it to
    Jerusalem

27
Many more and then finally
  • By 1291 the Muslims had recaptured ALL of the
    holy land and the Crusades were DONE (
    unsuccessful for Christians)
  • Why, you may ask?
  • Had to travel far from home on FOOT- many died
  • Werent prepared to battle in the desert
  • Outnumbered by well prepared and well led armies
  • Christians fought amongst themselves and were
    unorganized

28
  • Crusades
  • helped kings to become more powerful
  • Created more tensions between Jews, Christians
    and Muslims
  • increased trade
  • increased towns
  • increased disease..

29
  • Many wanted to visit religious places- so went on
    pilgrimages to do so- traveled to Holy and
    religious sites around Europe and Asia
  • Some believed in the church so much that when
    they dies- they left land to the church- which
    was divided into fiefs- and the church became a
    lord- humor anyone????

30
Being religious
  • Monks of Cluny- French Monks- unhappy with Church
    affairs- became a religious order and devoted
    lives to nothing but God
  • Dominicans and Franciscan friars lived in cities
    and spread Christian teachings- St. Francis of
    Assisi ( most famous one)

31
  • As towns grew- eventually desire for education
    did as well-
  • 1st university in Bologna, Italy also had them in
    Paris (Sorbonne) and England
  • Thomas Aquinas- reasoned that rational thought
    could be used to argue Christian beliefs ( eg.
    existence of God )
  • Also Natural Law- God had created a law about how
    the world operated

32
Art/Architecture
  • Had traveling musicians called troubadours or
    minstrels- and would sing and dance and make fun
    of people
  • showed devotion to God by
  • (during M.Ages) 1. Built huge churches called
    Cathedrals (ex. Notre Dame)
  • 2. going on pilgrimages to Rome or
    Jerusalem

33
  • 1215 Kings / Lords irritated with King Johns
    ideas limited his power with a legal document
    called Magna Carta at first only pertained to
    nobles but then to all
  • habeas corpus- you have the body- meaning you
    had to have just cause to arrest someone, etc.
  • Created a Parliament- law making body that still
    governs England today!

34
Hundred Years War
  • 1328- the French king died- he had no heirs so
    England and France battled for his throne- France
    won- but England did not relent- thus began the
    war!
  • For 100 years the English fought well- then Joan
    of Arc ( French GIRL) rallied the French to stand
    against them- the English killed her- but the
    French succeeded!

35
Effects
