5 Day One Absolutism

6 First Ten Be sure to have a textbook
Pick up a half sheet reading from the chair – do not write on it – read it and be ready for discussion. How to do vocabulary this unit What does divine mean? What is a monarchy? What gave kings that “right to rule” over people? Would we follow this model in the U.S.?

7 Hook What is divine right?
What is an absolute monarchy?  Age of Absolutism How is this different from a democracy? The state of monarchy is the supremest thing upon earth; for kings are not only God’s lieutenants upon earth, and sit upon God’s throne, but even by God Himself they are called gods... Kings justly gods, for they exercise a... divine power upon earth... 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... -King James IV/I of Britain, 160

Peter the Great Comparison Activity

9 Absolutism and Divine Right
Absolutism is when a single individual rules with complete power over their subjects. Typically they control your private and public life Laws are made without the consent of the governed  purpose is to centralize their power Rule by divine right was used by absolute monarchs in the 16th and 17th centuries to maintain control over the people. This is the belief that the monarch is God’s representative on earth. They receive their authority from God. If you challenge the monarchy, you are challenging God. When you challenge the King that is treason.

10 King Louis XIV Ruler of France – “I am the State” – “Sun King” Social: Weakened the authority of the noble class and gave that authority to intendants (government workers – not from a noble class), use of army to put down internal and external opponents Political: Initiated wars to expand empire and increase wealth Innovations: Palace of Versailles, dams & irrigation, self-glorification through art – ballet & opera Culture: ended Protestant freedoms with the Edict of Nantes Economic: Heavy taxation to fund projects and wars, make France self-sufficient (mercantilism)  colonies Sun King Versailles

11 King Louis XIV of France
What characteristics of this painting show the power of King Louis?

12 Chart Analysis Based on this chart, what assumption can be made concerning Louis and his leadership as an absolute monarch?

13 Peter the Great Czar of Russia – 1682 – 1725
Social: nobility class (boyars) must embrace westernization, large use of peasant labor to build cities Political: Tension with Church, taxation, First Czar out of Russia Innovations: St. Petersburg – Window to the West, Grand Embassy Culture: Westernization (dress and appearance), took control of the Orthodox Church Economic: heavy taxation for large building projects (St. Petersburg) Peter the Great - Discovery

14 Czar Peter I of Russia What image is Peter trying to convey in this painting?

15 Find 3 general similarities and 3 general differences between these absolute monarchs.

16 Louis XIV Peter I Last Ten Comparing Louis and Peter
Compare and Contrast – Louis v. Peter Absolutism DBQ is due on Thursday Louis XIV Peter I

17 Reminders DBQ Activity is due on Friday
Reading Analysis #1 is due on Thursday

18 Day Two Absolutism in the East

19 What is being described in this quote?
First Ten Yesterday we discussed Louis XIV & Peter the Great. Would you argue that they were an effective monarch? Why or why not? “Here a new city shall be wrought [built]… Shall break a window to the West… Here flags of foreign nations all By waters new to them will call…” Which of the following does not belong? St. Petersburg, Paris, Versailles Taxation, frequent wars, freedom of speech Divine Right, Absolutism, Reason Louis XIV, intendant, boyar Grand Embassy, Edict of Nantes, Westernization What is being described in this quote?

20 Hook On your worksheet complete the front for Louis and Peter (This should be review).

21 Work Session Today we will discuss Absolute monarchs in China and Japan. Complete your chart on the back, just as you did on the front using your textbook: Japan: China:

22 Japan Warring States Period (1467-1568) Oda Nobunaga (1568-1582)
Toyotomi Hideyoshi ( ) Tokugawa Ieyasu ( ) BUT his family ruled Japan until 1867  Tokugawa Shogunate

23 Japan under Centralization
Tokugawa Shogunate: Construction of Edo Castle Alternate attendance policy for the daimyos Persecution of Christianity Resorted to isolationism


25 largest donjon (tower) in Japan
Edo Castle largest donjon (tower) in Japan Daimyo were forced to help pay for this project All surrounding hills were leveled and the bay was filled in! Daimyo sent 3,000 ships for years to get enough large stone for Ieyasu

26 China Ming  Qing Ming embraced exploration and contact with the Europeans/Africans/other Asians Qing seized power in China in 1644. Kangxi was their first emperor ( ) Qian-long (grandson) ruled from ( )

27 China under Centralization
Brought restoration through strict boundaries in country Lower taxation Patron of the Arts & learning  culture flourished Religious FREEDOM! – Jesuits and Confucianism allowed Originally allowed Christian merchants and missionaries (new products brought in and out of country) but soon isolated China – no desire for trade with European countries – Dutch were allowed to stay but had to pay a tribute  China wanted to be self-sufficient. Successfully invades Korea Women lacked freedoms


29 Conclusion  Similarities
All rise to power after years of warfare (better to have strict dictator than chaos and war) Built strong armies All raise heavy taxes Expanded territory Created a strong centralized power Brought nobility under control Drew advisors from middle class Encouraged better manufacturing and trade Brought church under gov’t control Did not allow religious toleration

30 Last Ten How were western policies similar and different from eastern policies during the Age of Absolutism? East West

31 Review Absolutism and Scientific Revolution
Day Three Review Absolutism and Scientific Revolution

32 First Ten Pick up a sheet from the chair and complete!
Chinese Population Analysis Crossword Review I will be checking your DBQ Assignment at this time.

33 Hook What do you know about the individuals below? Can you list their major accomplishments? Nicolas Copernicus Galileo Galilee Johannes Kepler Sir Isaac Newton Definition of Scientific Revolution? New theories replaced old theories of science that were rooted in a new idea called the scientific method.

34 Work Session Scientific Revolution DBQ and Discussion Work time!
Vocabulary Analytical Reading

35 Main Ideas In the mid-1500’s scientists began to question accepted beliefs and make new theories based on experimentation Such questioning led to the development of the scientific method still in use today.

36 Copernicus Polish Cleric & astronomer
Worked 25 years to develop the Heliocentric Theory which challenged the Catholic Church’s Geocentric Theory (which was based off of research by Aristotle during the Greek Golden Age). Since he feared the church (heresy) he did not publish his findings until the year of his day in 1543. He did not have the mathematical formulas to prove his findings, just observations.

37 Galileo Italian Scientist Developed his own telescope in 1609
Findings: Jupiter has 4 moons, the sun has dark spots, and the moon was imperfect. These findings went against the Catholic Church’s ideas of the moon (again based on Aristotle. However, Galileo published the Starry Messenger (1632) in which he supported the Copernican theory.

38 Persecution of Galileo
Galileo was put on trial for heresy – Inquisition – Where he reads a confession. Although he recanted, he was still placed on house arrest until his death in 1642. The Catholic Church apologized for their actions in I, Galileo…Florentine, aged seventy years, …kneeling before you,…swear that I have always believed, do believe, and by God's help will in  the future believe, all that is held, preached, and taught by the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church…I must altogether abandon the false opinion that the sun is the center of the world and immovable, and that the earth is not the center of the world, and moves, and that I must not hold, defend, or teach in any way whatsoever, verbally or in writing, the said false doctrine…I wrote and printed a book in which I discuss this new doctrine already condemned,…I have been pronounced by the Holy Office to be vehemently suspected of heresy, that is to say, of having held and believed that the Sun is the center of the world and immovable, and that the earth is not the center and moves:  …with sincere heart and unfeigned faith I abjure, curse, and detest the aforesaid errors and heresies, and generally every other error, heresy,  and sect whatsoever contrary to the said Holy Church, and I swear that in the future I will never again say or assert, verbally or in writing, anything that might furnish occasion for a similar suspicion regarding me…”

39 Kepler German mathematician & astronomer
Assistant to Tycho Brahe (student of Copernicus) Findings: planets move in elliptical patterns, not circles & proved Copernican theory using mathematical evidence. Also, many of his findings formed a foundation for Sir Isaac Newton

40 Sir Isaac Newton English scientist – 1600’s
Studied math and physics at Cambridge Findings: Universal Gravitation, Laws of Motion “If I have seen further than others, it is because I have stood on the shoulders of giants.”

41 Questions you should be able to answer…
What was the difference between the helio – and geo – centric theories? Who had the authority in science prior to the Scientific Revolution? What was the importance/significance of the Scientific Revolution? Why did Copernicus not publish his findings until after his death? Name 3 new ideas and findings by Galileo. How did Kepler confirm the theories of Copernicus and Galileo? How was Newton the “capstone” of the Scientific Revolution?
