5 Before we write: ________________________________________________________ Something to note: Even though people are finally starting to pull themselves out of the Middle Ages by asking new questions and taking a greater interest in education, Europe is in the process of tearing itself apart. WHY’S THAT, YOU ASK? WELL, YOU’RE ABOUT TO FIND OUT NOSEYPANTS. JUST COOL YOUR JETS FOR A MINUTE.

9 Religious Wars: ________________________________________________________ o While there were international conflicts, the most awful fighting was usually between Catholics and Protestants of the same country/region o In the Holy Roman Empire, a civil war wages for 30 years! ANYONE BRAVE ENOUGH TO WAGER A GUESS AS TO WHAT THAT WAR WAS CALLED?

12 Rise of Absolutism: ________________________________________________________ o This widespread unrest in Europe led to a desire amongst European monarchies (kings and queens) for more power so that they could get things back under control o But they needed a way to justify it… I need more power! That’s MY line!

13 Rise of Absolutism: ________________________________________________________ o In order to convince people that they deserved absolute power, monarchs began to claim that their power to rule came directly from God o This also meant that they were only responsible to God, and no one else could question their authority Now I’ve got all the power I could ever want! Good, ‘cause I could really use a break.

14 Divine Right of Kings: ________________________________________________________ The “Divine Right of Kings” was used for two purposes: o Maintaining order o Strengthening the power of the monarchy THAT’S IT FOR THE NOTES!

God hath power to create or destroy, make or unmake at His pleasure, to give life or sent death to judge and to be judged nor accountable to none, to raise low things and to make high things low at His pleasure... And the like power of kings.”
