28 IVAN IV- RELIGION Russian Orthodox church Christianity St. Basil’s Cathedral was built under Ivan IV’s reign to celebrate his victory over the Mongols. Religion offered a means of political control to Ivan’s government

29 IVAN IV- GOVERNMENT Ivan the Terrible crowned himself czar (emperor) when he was 16 years old, in 1547. Issued a code of laws in 1550. This code of laws was the revised version of the code of laws that was issued by his grandfather, Ivan III. The code of laws was called the Sudebnik. Examples of reforms: the arrest of a suspected person could be made at the permission of the community only. The representative of a community (dyak) participated in judicial office-work. The town had right to self management and distribution of taxes. The right of peasants to leave their lords after two payments: the break away fee (pozhiloye) and the transportation fee (povoz).

30 IVAN IV- ECONOMY/ TRADE During Ivan’s childhood and after his death in 1584, there were struggles for power among Russia’s nobles, called boyars. Ivan the terrible wanted to increase trade with Europe, so he began a war (the Livonian War) :for access to the Baltic Sea. The financing for this war, because it was so lengthy, strained Russia’s economy. Despite valiant efforts, the Russians were defeated by Lithuanian, Polish, and Swedish armies. Because nothing was earned from that war because of their loss, Russia’s economy was left unstable.

32 IVAN IV- EVENTS (TIMELINE) 1530- Ivan is born! 1533- At age 3, Ivan comes to the throne as Grand Duke of Moscow 1538- Ivan’s mother dies supposedly of poison- boyars keep him “prisoner” (bad clothes & food) 1547- Ivan, 16 years old, had himself crowned czar. 1550- Code of laws- Sudebnik 1547-1560- Ivan’s “good period”: got married to Anastasia Romanov, and had many victories against the Mongols 1560- Anastasia dies and Ivan’s “bad period” begins: revenge against boyars= oprichniki (police force)kill boyars harshly. 1581- during a brawl, Ivan accidentally kills his older son (and heir), leaving his younger, and more stupid son as heir to the throne. 1584- Ivan the Terrible (Ivan IV) dies

33 IVAN IV- NOTABLES Even though Ivan IV had many accomplishments during his good period, he was better remembered for his bad period. Ivan is also strongly remembered for killing his son when they were having a heated argument. Ivan used to always carry around a pointed staff, and in the midst of their argument, he punctured his son’s head with the staff.

34 IVAN IV- BORDERS Baltic Sea to the West Siberia to the East Mongolia to the South Ural Mountains to the North

35 IVAN IV- DECLINE Ordered the murder of St. Philip of Moscow in 156.9 Pillaged and destroyed the city of Great Novgorod and murdered hundreds of its citizens in 1570. Wanted to abdicate when he accidentally killed his eldest son Ivan. Finally lost the battle for Livonia in 1582, where troops had battled since 1560. Lost the Baltic Seaboard during his reign and it was not regained for 150 years.

36 IVAN IV- LEGACIES Destroyed the Mongols on the Volga River Commissioned the building of St. Basil’s Cathedral to celebrate his defeat of the Mongols. Organized a code of laws in 1550. Expanded Russian land to the east and southeast and was first Russian czar to attack the Crimea. Sent envoys to explore and colonize Siberia

37 CURRENT EVENT Syrian troops ‘attack Damascus suburbs’ Summary: The article I chose was about the Syrian troops opening fire on their own citizens. Most occurrences were happened after the UNSMIS left (UN Supervision Mission in Syria). At least 430 people were killed Theme Peace and Security- because it involves terrorism when the troops opened fire on people from their own country

38 CURRENT EVENT Relation to class Ivan IV organized the oprichniki, who were ordered to kill traitors, boyars, or anybody suspicious. Ivan IV is like the President of Syria, Bashar al-Assad, because they are both basically turning against their own country and throwing it into ruins. Reaction I was very appalled when I discovered this article because I thought it was extremely odd how troops, people who are supposed to save citizens, were instead turning against and killing them.
