2 Part One The Ancient World

3 Ancient World: Civilizations and Religions (4000 B.C.E. – C.E. 500)
Key IDs Nomad Technology Pharaoh Empire Cultural diffusion Civilization Fertile crescent Middle Kingdom Neolithic Polytheistic Cuneiform Dynasty Paleolithic gods Hammurabi

4 Ancient World: Civilizations and Religions (4000 B.C.E. – C.E. 500)
The first humans – believed to have appeared over 2M years ago Hunters and Gatherers Simple tools and weapons from stone, bone, and wood Development of Farming The Neolithic Revolution Gave up their nomadic way of life Early civilizations developed in river valleys Developed systems of government, social structures, and belief systems Migration, trade, and warfare helped ideas mover from one culture to another Cultural Diffusion

5 Early Peoples Hunters and Gatherers Adapting to the Environment
The Old Stone Age also known as the Paleolithic Age Known as Nomads Moved from place to place to hunt and gather their food Simple social structures – people who traveled together Adapting to the Environment Made simple tools and weapons from wood, bone, and stone Developed languages to communicate Animal skin for clothing

6 Early Peoples Spiritual Beliefs Migration
Towards the end of the Old Stone Age, began to bury their dead with care Believed in the afterlife Buried tools and weapons with dead Migration Lived in East Africa Spread to all parts of the world Land Bridge Migration led to Cultural Diffusion

7 Neolithic Revolution Climate Change brings new patterns of life
Old Stone Age Ends Climate Change brings new patterns of life Plants supplant ice Learned to farm – domesticated Permanent villages – art and architecture emerges Neolithic Revolution OR Agricultural Revolution

8 Neolithic Revolution New social classes created
More food equals more people New social classes created Scarce resources results in war Chiefs or headsman emerge New Technology Calendars, plows, the wheel, metal weapons, and metal tools

9 Neolithic Revolution Rise of Civilizations Rich, fertile lands
River Valleys Rich, fertile lands Cities and Governments emerge New Rulers emerge – ordered public works projects such as roads, bridges, canals, and defensive walls Skilled craftsman emerge – pottery, cloth, and other Religion – polytheistic (many gods) System of writing – cuneiform, pictures

20 Sumerian Civilization
Indus River Valley Also in Mesopotamia The Indian subcontinent - extends into the Indian Ocean Mountains in the north limits contact with other cultures Monsoons – depended for crops, deadly floods 2500 years ago Archaeologists have uncovered impressive cities, but little else is known


22 China Mountains, deserts, and an ocean isolate China
Developed in the river valley of the Yellow River and Yangzi Mountains, deserts, and an ocean isolate China Believed that their civilizations was the center of the earth – The Middle Kingdom Government 1600 BCE – The Shang people or groups of families controlled China The Shang set up the first dynasty Social Structures – During the Shang Dynasty, noble warriors owned the land Merchants and craftspeople earned a living Peasants lived in farming villages

24 Demographic Patterns and Migration
Demography – the study of human populations Demographics patterns, or changes in populations over time, are often influenced by geographic features such as rivers. Rivers also served as highways for the transport of people and goods Bantu Migrations The Bantus – originally lived in W. Africa Skilled farmers and herders Migrated to the south and east in search of fertile land after the Sahara dried up 500BCE and 1500 CE, they spread their knowledge of farming and ironworking, as well as their language, across the continent. Today, about 1/3 of all Africans speak a language that includes a dialect of the Bantu

52 Growth of Global Trade Routes
Classical civilizations engaged in trade with one another – exchanged goods, technologies, and culture. Cultural Diffusion!!! Phoenician Trade – one of the earliest trading empires of the Middle East Made up of small city-state in what is today Lebanon and Syria. Manufactured glass from sand, dye, and created scrolls from Egyptian papyrus (paper) Ships sailed across the Med Most important contributions – the alphabet and system to record business transactions…the alphabet is the basis for OUR alphabet

53 The Fall of the Roman Empire
Rome extended its initial location in central Italy Roman army too much for its neighbors…very organized, disciplined, and rigid By 44BCE Roman power extended throughout the Med…From Spain to parts of Asia Minor…into what is now France and Britain…In other words, it was BIG!

During the early part of the Middle Ages, kings were too weak to keep invaders out People would leave town and cities, banding together in the countryside for protection and survival Medieval Society everyone had a well-defined place Born into their social positions, and there was little change of moving up Nobility consisted of the kings, queens, lords, and knights Nobles controlled the land and power Lower class, the peasants, worked the land and served the nobles Clergy was highly respected – Christian Church dominated

107 Feudalism Divided their land into estates called fiefs
political system in which powerful lords (nobles) owned large sections of land Divided their land into estates called fiefs Fiefs given to lesser lords called vassals Vassals pledged their loyalty and military support to their lords in return for the land Knighthood – War was commonplace during the Middle Ages thus many nobles trained to become knights Knights were bound by a code of conduct known as Chivalry, code charged them to be brave, loyal, and true to their word. The code also required them to protect women

108 Feudalism Role of Noblewomen – assumed an active role in feudal society A “lad” was in charge of her husband’s estate while he was away serving his lord in battle Responsible for all household affairs, including raising the children Girls received training in household arts such as spinning, weaving, and the management of servants. Had limited inheritance rights – most possessions went to the eldest son

109 Manorialism structured around a lord’s manor, or estate
The economic force – Manorialism structured around a lord’s manor, or estate included one or more villages and the land surrounding them each group in society had a place; each also had certain rights and responsibilities Peasants and Lords – most of the peasants who lived on the estate were serfs Serfs were not slaves, but they were bound to the land They could not leave without the lord’s approval Farmed the lord’s land The lord provided the serfs with several acres of land to farm Lord protected the serfs Peasants worked long hours and died young (few lived past 35) Common thread kept them together – Christianity Loved their holidays – center of the Christian Church



112 The Role of the Church Two Churches emerge Orthodox Christian Church (East) and Roman Catholic (West) Permanent split in 1054 Roman Catholic Church was a stabilizing force in Western Europe Provided religious leadership Secular Church (see below) Pope – head of church; spiritual leader; representative of Jesus Archbishops, Bishops, and local priests Everyday life for peasants was tied to local priests Responsibility of Church – spiritual needs; instruction; taught that all men and women were sinners Could achieve salvation or eternal life through faith in Jesus, good works, and participation in sacraments

113 Political Power – Own Laws or Cannon Laws; own courts and justice
The Role of the Church Secular role of Church Secular or worldly Economic Power – vast landholder; significant power; wealth, which was gained through the tithe (a tax Christians were required to pay that equaled a % of their income) Political Power – Own Laws or Cannon Laws; own courts and justice Claimed authority over monarchs – not all agreed and there were frequent struggles for power Popes believed they had power over kings Excommunication – challenge or threaten the Church and you may be excluded from the Church Monastic Orders monks and nuns Centers for Learning monks and nuns preserved ancient writings by copying ancient texts; taught Latin and Greek Missionary Work spread the message of Christianity

114 Jews in Medieval Europe
Jews in Muslim Spain and northern areas of Europe were tolerated Overall, most Christians persecuted Jews Church bars Jews from owning land and practicing their occupation Anti-Semitism – prejudice against Jews Christians blamed the Jews for all types of misfortunes (famines to disease) The Role of Usury and the expulsion of Jews from Europe Jews migrated to Eastern Europe to escape persecution Medieval Contributions Literature began to appear in everyday languages (not just Latin) Authors – Dante and Chaucer Architecture and Art – Roman influence – around 1000, stone building Gothic Traditions – 1100s – New building that soared upward.

116 The Start of the Crusades
1050, Turks, who were Muslim invaded the Byzantine Empire and conquered Palestine Christian Church called for a movement to drive the Muslims out of Palestine 200 years, Christians fought a series of religious wars – The Crusades The wars failed left a legacy of ill will and distrust between Christians and Muslims The positive side of war – trade increased and European economy expanded Feudal monarchs gained more power Europeans learned of the existence of lands beyond their borders Cultural Diffusion – learned from Islam The Start of the Crusades 1050, Turks invaded the Byzantine Empire 4 decades, the Turks overran most of the Empire, Asia Minor, and Palestine Byzantine asks the Pope (Pope Urban) for help Council of Clermont – Pope asks for all Christians to help take back the Holy Land People who answered the call from the Pope were called Crusaders

117 Why The Crusades Happened
Religion and Secularism The pope believed that the Crusades would increase his power Christians believed that their sins would be forgiven for participating Nobles hoped to gain wealth and land Adventurers saw it as a chance to travel and excitement Serf’s hoped to escape feudal oppression The Four Crusades As mentioned, the Crusades last for 200 years The First Crusade was the ONLY Crusade that came close to achieving its goals 1099, the Christians captured the city of Jerusalem; followed up with massacres of both Muslim and Jewish inhabitants Saladin and Muslim Victory During the 1100s, Saladin united the Muslims Respected by both Muslims and Christians March to Jerusalem – Christians prepare to fight back Saladin wins back Jerusalem; forbade his soldiers from killing or harming the defeated Crusaders

118 Richard the Lion-Hearted
1189, King of England Determined to take back Jerusalem from Saladin Third Crusade Unable to take back Jerusalem End of the Crusades Fourth Crusade Again, attempt to retake Jerusalem Defeated Byzantine trade rivals Looted Constantinople War had changed from a war that started as a war of Christian vs. Muslim Ended in a battle between rival Christian factions Impact of the Crusades Failed to attain their main goal of retaking the Holy Land Left behind a deed divide – a legacy of hatred between Christians and Muslims Why? Each group committed terrible acts of violence against each other Not all bad! European economies grew; expanded view of the world Cultural Diffusion expanded Ships built for the purpose of carrying Crusaders now moved product Europeans exposed to advancement in math, science, literature, art, geographical knowledge

119 Temporarily increased the power of the pope
Impact of the Crusades Changes within the Church Temporarily increased the power of the pope Conflicts with feudal monarchs in Europe would lessen the power Eastern and Western churches affected – the gap widens Changes in Feudal System Crusades increased power of monarchs; gained the right to increase taxes Feudal Monarchs were the leaders of the Crusades thus their prestige increases Feudalism weakens An economy based on money, not land, took hold

120 Council of Clermont

121 Contemporary account of Urban II’s speech at the Council of Clermont
DBQ Practice For your brethren who live in the east are in urgent need of your help, and you must hasten to give them the aid which has often been promised them. For…the Turks and Arabs have attacked them…They have occupied more and more of the lands of those Christians…If you permit them to continue…the faithful of God will be much more widely attacked by them. On this account I, or rather the Lord, beseech you as Christ's heralds to publish this everywhere and to persuade all people of whatever rank, foot-soldiers and knights, poor and rich, to carry aid promptly to those Christians and to destroy that vile race from the lands of our friends….Christ commands it.“ Fulcher of Chartres, 1095 Contemporary account of Urban II’s speech at the Council of Clermont What does the speaker want Christians to do in response to his words? ______________________________________________________________________________

247 Part Five The Age of Revolutions

248 Scientific Revolution
Scientific Revolution and the Age of Enlightenment Key IDs New Ideas – Middle Ages, scholars believed the earth was the center of the universe. This idea came from Roman-Greco thinking and the teachings of the Church. Scientific Revolution Scientific Method Montesquieu Copernicus Descartes Voltaire Heliocentric Natural Laws Rousseau Galileo Enlightenment Enlightened Despot Isaac Newton John Locke Joseph II

249 New Ideas – European scientist began to think differently in the 1500s.
The renaissance – scholars began to question old ideas about the world - - this period is known as the Scientific Revolution Copernicus – challenged the idea that the earth was the center of the universe; he argued that the universe was heliocentric, or sun-centered; that the planets revolved around the sun Most scholars rejected Copernicus’s theory Early 1600s, Galileo would argue in favor of heliocentric theory; would observe the skies through a telescope, which would contradict the teachings of the Church; put on trial and forced to recant his ideas

250 Newton – built on Copernicus and Galileo; used math to prove the existence of a force that kept planets in their orbits; called the force gravity, the same force that made objects fall toward Earth New Ways of Thinking Scientific Method s, this method relied on experimentation and observation Descartes and Human Reasoning – challenged the idea that new knowledge should be made to fit existing traditional ideas; emphasized the power of human reason; believed that reason, rather than tradition, should be the way to discover truth. Descartes ideas paved the way for other changes.

251 Science and the Enlightenment
Scientist would use reason to explain why things happened in the physical universe. 1700s, scholars and writers would reason to discover natural laws, or laws that govern human behavior; applied the scientific method of investigation and observation in order to solve the problems of society Enlightenment -1700s, people would reject traditional ideas and supported a belief in human reason; logical thought can lead to truth is called rationalism; Enlightened Thinkers introduced new ways of viewing authority, power, government, and law

252 Enlightened Thinkers John Locke, 1600s; believed that all people possess natural rights. These rights include the rights to life, liberty, and property; if a government does not protect these rights, people have the right to overthrow it. Montesquieu, 1700s, argued that powers of government should be separated into three branches (legislative, executive, and judicial); he argued that the separation of powers would prevent tyranny be creating a system of checks and balances. In other words, each branch keeps the other two in-check

253 Impact of the Enlightenment
Voltaire, 1700s, believed in free speech; used sharp wit to criticize the French gov’t and the Catholic Church for their failure to permit religious toleration and intellectual freedom Rousseau, 1700s, penned his ideas in a book titled The Social Contract; argued that people are naturally good but are corrupted by the evils of society, such as the unequal distribution of property; believed in the will of the majority, which he called general will; believed that the majority should always work for the common good. Impact of the Enlightenment People began to question established beliefs and customs; would affect leaders and the development of nations; would cause the establishment to institute censorship

254 Enlightened Despots Some monarchs accepted Enlightenment ideas; they were known as despots, absolute rulers who used their power to reform society. Maria Theresa – 1700s, Austrian ruler, improved tax system by forcing clergy and nobles to pay taxes thus lessen the burden on peasants; made primary education available to the children of her kingdom Joseph II – Maria’s son, continued her reforms; modernized the gov’t; chose officials for their talent rather than because of their status; legal reforms; religious toleration, ended censorship, abolished serfdom; however, many of his reforms would be later overturned.

255 Democracy and Nationalism
Catherine The Great – 1762, became empress of Russia, read Enlightened work; Asked for advice from nobles and free peasants (a first in Russia), built schools and hospitals, promoted education for women, religious toleration; however, after a peasant uprising, many of her reforms were overturned Democracy and Nationalism Enlightenment ideas would inspire a sense of individualism (personal freedom), and a sense of basic equality; challenge traditional authority, cause the growth of democracy. Nationalism grew as people in a country drew together to fight for a democratic gov’t. Enlightenment ideas would contribute to an age of revolution.

267 Effects of the French Revolution
Growth of Nationalism – inspired feelings of national pride and unity; this lead to the emergence of identity replaced earlier loyalty to local authority and the person who occupied the monarchy Nationalistic feeling across Europe and the world also emerged; Napoleon’s conquests had a part in the eventual unification of both Italy and Germany – the weakening of Spain led to the Latin American independence movement

268 Latin American Movements
late 1700s, Enlightenment and Revolutionary ideas spread from Europe and the United States Educated Latin Americans read the works of Enlightened writers such as Thomas Paine, Jefferson, and the National Assembly Their success showed that foreign rule could be thrown off Latin Americans were inspired by what the French Rev had accomplished Toussaint L’Ouverture – French colony Haiti, first Latin American colony to revolt; led by L’Ouverture, a former slave, self-educated, led a revolt; effective military leader and gained control of much of island. 1798, Haitian slaves win their freedom

Key IDs The Congress of Vienna – after Napoleon’s defeat, European diplomats met at the Congress of Vienna in 1815 to devise a peace settlement Their goal – to restore order and stability to Europe Congress of Vienna Metternich Balance of Power Conservatism Liberalism Cash crop economy Nationalism Russification Pogrom Oligarchy Caudillo Porfirio Diaz

273 Congress of Vienna Metternich of Austria, the dominant figure at the conference, wanted to restore Europe to the way it was before the French Rev Alexander I of Russia wanted to create and alliance of Christian monarch to suppress future revolutions Lord Castlereagh of England wanted to prevent France from rebuilding its military forces Talleryrand of France wanted to obtain equal footing for France with the rest of the nations

274 Metternich

275 Congress of Vienna Balance of Power and Restored Monarchs
Why the Congress of Vienna was a success mutual goals all wanted a balance of power Distribution of military and economic power that prevents any one nation from becoming too strong All wanted to restore power to monarchs The Congress of Vienna was the first of many reactions in Europe against the revolutionary ideas of the 1700s and 1800s A victory for Conservatism – those who wanted to preserve traditional ways, which clashed with revolutionary ideals

276 New Revolutions in Europe
The Congress of Vienna helped to maintain peace among nations for almost 100 years – the operative word being peace Revolutions did occur though Revolutionaries opposed the Congress of Vienna, particularly, attempts to restore Europe to the way it had been before the French Rev. Revolts – occurred in many places across Europe Causes – Liberalism, people opposed the power of monarchs and sought democratic reform and Nationalism, people wanted independent nation-states that were free from foreign rule

277 Revolution of 1830 France – restoration of the Bourbons by the Congress of Vienna led to attempts to restore absolutism; Bourbon monarch Charles X was overthrown by a revolt and replaced by Louis Philippe Belgium – revolutionaries demanded independence from the Dutch, Belgium would gain independence in 1831 Italy – CoV (Congress of Vienna) divided Italy among several ruling families, including those from France and Austria , revolutionaries in northern Italy rose up to throw off foreign domination…they were put down by Austrian troops Poland – most were under Russian control, 1830, nationalist in Poland staged and uprising…they failed to gain widespread support

278 Revolution of 1848 France – King Louis Philippe’s gov’t denounced as corrupt, prompting another revolution in 1848; Louis steps down, and a republic was established; upper and middle-class interests gained control of the gov’t and violently put down a workers’ rebellion in Paris. The fighting left bitter feelings b/t the working class and the middle class Austrian Empire – Students revolt, Metternich attempts to suppress; Metternich resigns when workers rose up to support the students; Austria agrees to certain reforms; Austrian army regains control and many revolutionaries were imprisoned, executed, or sent into exile

Italy and Germany – Rebellions in Italy were successful for short periods of time; Germany, student protestors who were backed by peasants and workers demanded reforms. Assembly was formed, it would be dissolved as the revolutionaries turned on each other Impact of Revolutions 1830 and 1848 revolutions frightened many of Europe’s rulers As a result, some agreed to reforms For the most part, the revolts of 1830 and 48 failed; why most revolutionaries did have widespread support Revolutionaries themselves were divided Powerful gov’t forces often crushed the revolts

281 Political Conditions of Russia
Absolutism in Russia Impact of the French Revolution, Russian Czars strove to keep the ideals of the revolution (liberty, equality, fraternity) from reaching the borders of Russia. Therefore, Russia changed very little Political Conditions of Russia Feudal Society – rigid feudal social structures; landowning nobles were the most powerful and resisted change; middle class was too small to effect change; serfs were bound to the land, and the owners of the land had total power over the serfs Freeing the Serfs – Crimean War (war with the Ottoman Empire), the lost caused Russian leaders to realize they needed to modernize and industrialize…demands for reforms and the end of serfdom Remind students to the release of peasants from serfdom to the emancipation of slaves in the U.S.

282 Political Conditions of Russia
Alexander II, 1861, serfs were free, which brought problems; former serfs had to purchase land that they worked and many were too poor to do so. Many serfs moved off their land into the cities, where they took jobs in industries. Russification – because of its size, Russia contained many ethnic minorities. Czars aimed to maintain tight control over these people as well as to encourage feelings of Russian unity. Russification was an attempt to make all groups think, act, and believe as Russians. Alexander persecuted non-Russians One Church (Russian Orthodox Church) Persecuted Jews; pogroms – violent attacks on Jews Czars attempted to force minorities to abandon their own culture and adopt Russian culture…cultural infusion vs Cultural difussion

283 Instability in Latin America
Early 1800s, Latin America had rid itself on Spanish control Independence led to revolts and civil wars broke out while poverty and prejudice continued Geographic Barriers – Latin American countries covered a vast area, from Mexico to the southern tip of South America; barriers included the Andes Mtns, which hindered attempts at unification. Barriers often led to fights b/t various leaders and nationalistic feelings within different groups.

Instability in Latin America Social Injustice – Why democracy did not follow independence – colonial class structure remained intact. Creoles replaced peninsulares (Spanish born) as the ruling class Creoles maintained a tight grip on land and wealth Ruling power belonged to a small, powerful elite class, known as an oligarchy Mestizos, mulattoes, Indians, and Africans gained few rights and continued to face racial prejudice; most continued to work as peasants on farms Mestizos – mixed race, Spanish and native Mulattoes – mixed race, one white, one black

285 Instability in Latin America
Military Rulers – Local military strongmen called caudillos, organized their own armies and challenged central governments Some caudillos were strong enough to gain control of governments; these dictators were often repressive, usually ignored existing constitutions, and their policies usually favored the upper class Power of the Church – The Roman Catholic Church acted as a stabilizing force; promoted education, but also had an interest in preserving the old order Church continued to own large amounts of land Liberals hoped to end the Church’s power over educations and landholding

286 Instability in Latin America
Economic Problems – Latin American economies were dependent on trade with Spain and Portugal Economies relied on a cash crop economy; cops such as sugar, cotton, and coffee Dependence on a single or only a few crops created an unstable economy – if a drought or crop failure were to occur, the economy would be devastated Economic Imperialism – Influence of foreign investment; investment in foreign economies and infrastructure Despite foreign investment, a rigid class structure limited economic gains for the majority of society

287 The Mexican Revolution (1910-1930)
