Lecture Notes LECTURE #15: 7/08/16 (Varieties of Protestantism, Other Reformations) Anabaptists Anabaptist is an umbrella term that means a diversity of congregations. You had to be spiritually regenerated in order to be apart of their congregation. Lutheranism became a local church and benefitted from the protection of the state. These were the first people to live in the concept of “the state is separated from the church”. This group did not support infant baptism, due to a child that young not really having full understanding of what baptism was and why one goes through it. Biblical literalism was a big deal. Luther wanted to both read and interpret the bible. The Anabaptists interpreted the bible extremely literally—followed it by the n degree, which inspired certain lifestyle practices. Some would live in communal type arrangements and would practice pacifism. They were run out of Germany and took refuge in the Netherlands due to the Dutch being more religiously tolerant. This gave rise to the Quakers and the Baptist churches. Zwingli Zwingli was a man that started out as a catholic priest living in Zurich. He under went a reformation and became a protestant along with a congregation. He separated from Luther through the meaning of communion. This take on communion was known as consubstantiation. He claimed Christ was spiritually present but not physically. In Marburg, Luther and Zwingli got together to see if they could compromise over the Sacrament of Communion, but failed, which led to the thought of there being more than one type of Protestantism. Calvinism Calvinism became the most dynamic form of Protestantism. John Calvin was French and was a 2 generation reformer. He recharged the reformation. He studied to become a priest but was turned off by it, so he then became an attorney. His law school experience helped define his theology—which was logical. His theology—one idea was the majesty of god (which meant that god is majestic—he is all knowing and all powerful). The second idea (most known) was predestination—which means that god had predetermined who will be saved and who would be burned eternally (because god is omnipotent). The elect were those who would be saved. He said that it was a Christian’s duty to live a sin free/god respecting life. He claimed that if you are leading a morally good life then you can take that as a sign that you are one of the “elect”/ this way, he offered people hope. Protestants, especially Calvinists put a lot of work on ethic—due to Calvin saying that you should work hard in order to be a good Christian/being a part of the elect. The most capitalist economy was Italy. The English Reformations World History 1010—Lecture and Book Notes Weeks 7 and 8 The English reformation happened during the Tudor Dynasty. Henry VIII was the 2 nd king of the Tudor Dynasty. He was married to Catherine of Aragon (daughter of Ferdinand and Isabella). She had multiple pregnancies but only one survived, a girl named Mary. Henry was worried that he didn’t wouldn’t a male heir and believed that due to this reason, god was punishing him. Henry VIII decided to end the marrige and tried to marry Anne Boleyn. The pope said no, so Henry decided to make another church in which he was the head—this was strictly a political move in order to get rid of the papal authority in England. He relied on the parliament to deliver the news of “no more popes”. Henry’s right hand man was Thomas Cromwell. Anne Bolelyn had a girl, named Elizabeth—this got Anne rdheaded. Jane Seymour was Henry’s 3 wife who had a boy, named Edward IV. Edward seceded his father at the time of his death, but was too young to rule; therefore, his uncle did so. His idea was to bring back Protestantism. Thomas Crammar developed the 2 Book of Common Prayer that became a liturgy. Edward died and the throne got passed to his half sister Mary Tudor. She went back to the way things were before the separation of her father and mother, but failed. Many clergy men were executed due to them not becoming Catholics/disobeying Mary—these executions went against Mary because it made the clergy men martyrs. Mary died and the throne was passed to her half sister Elizabeth. She wanted the church as it was during her father’s reign—this meant no pope, and only her ruling the church. The Elizabethan settlement was what fixed everything—it was a compromise. The church still looked Catholic and the bishops were still there (episcopal) in contrast to Presbyterian (no bishops and run more democratically). However, there were problems, the puritans who were within the church wanted to get rid of everything Elizabeth loved. LECTURE #17: 7/11/16 (Other Reformations, The Wars of Religion) Catholic Reformation The Catholic Reformation was an internally genuine movement. The people were reformers that believed that the church could be saved. The theology wasn’t initial, but the clergy was. This was the first form of Catholic Reform. The new monastic order was a new order of monks and nuns. Their soul purpose was to work with the normal people and to go out and serve them as well. The Society of Jesus (The Jesuits) was a very important group—the founder was Loyola. Loyola grew up to be a warrior but ended up getting injured, so he read everything he could out of boredom; afterwards he realized he needed to serve the church—he ended up becoming the “nucleus”. There was a reputation of Jesuit education being hard. The Catholics wanted to build schools to make people more religiously educated. Jesuits were also missionaries—They would learn the language of those they were targeting to convert/educate. The Pa Pal Reform consisted of Paul III who wanted to end the abuse in the church. Paul ended up calling the council of Trent—they wanted to find a middle ground between them and the Protestants, but thought Protestants were wrong. There were two things important to the Christians—the bible and history but only the bible was important for the Protestants. The Protestants claimed there should be both internal and external faith. Trent decided to increase the internal faith and focus on it more. The church adopted private confession and confession with the box—the purpose was to get the individual to confess freely and to be able to internally feel what they say. This all could be thought of as the general Catholic Reformation. Cathocism was a formal program for the religious education of children. World History 1010—Lecture and Book Notes Weeks 7 and 8 The Counter Reformation The church adopted many forbidden books that people weren’t allowed to read. The inquisition was a tribunal court that heard cases involving heresies. This wasn’t a fair system— due to one being hauled in to confess to something they didn’t know anything about or even do. Torture was used if no one wanted to confess. This was used the most in witchcraft. Witchcraze Everybody believed in witchcraft. Magic was a big part of life for the masses. They thought magic could be used to keep body and soul together. Each village had cunning folk to help with magic. This was all an attempt to survive. People claimed that witchcraft was satanic. Since witchcraft dealt with the devil, it was categorized as a heresy. Most peasants were thought of as those to practice it. Midwives were often accused due to baby/mom dying during childbirth. Beggars were also some of the accused. Explanation for Religious Violence People wondered why others would kill in the name of god—collective salvation was what was this was described as. An exoteric belief was collective salvation—salvation was a community effort. Someone who did anything wrong in the salvation, would be called pollutant. Martyrs were “proof” to be a part of the elect. When Protestants would kill a person they would just walk away after the person was declared deceased; however, Catholics would continue messing stabbing/mutilating the corpse even after death—this concept was known as purgatory. Iconoclasm was a form protestant violence—this was the destruction of idols. France was mostly catholic and Protestants were in minority. The Huguenot was a church of Calvinists and The Royal Policy had been the enemy of them. When these churches formed, armies would do so aswell. LECTURE #18: 7/13/16 (Wars of Religion, European Expansion in the Americas) Example: French Wars of Religion The Huguenots were Calvinists. In southern France there were pockets of Calvinists every here and there but they were never a majority religion. The wars happened mainly for religious reasons. Some of the nobility were catholic, some were protestant, and some acted in political ambitions to promote their family. The Guises were arch Catholics (more Catholics than the royal family.) The Bourbons were a Protestant family. The Duke of Guise came across a Protestant village; he was angry and told his people to open fire on the village—this killed many and was titled a massacre. These massacres went on continuously, between the Catholics and Protestants, Mary Stuart (aka Mary Queen of Scotts) was raised an arch Catholic due to her mom being a part of the Guise. When Mary’s husband died, the throne passed to Charles the VIII, since he was young; Catherine de Medici (the mom) was the regent. Catherine was in control during the 1 decade of the religious war “The Policy of Moderation” is what she proposed in order to try and make everyone happy and to promote religious toleration, but it ended up failing. Catherine decided to marry her daughter to Henry of Navarre (big person for the Protestants). The king wanted to kill many of the Protestants—known as St. Bartholomew’s Massacre. Henry and his cousin were then held prisoner and forced to convert into Catholicism. The throne ended up passing to Henry of Navarre (Protestant prince), and he voluntarily converted to Catholicism. He ended the war by granting the Edict of Nantes (this promoted religious tolerance of Protestants, but not religious freedom). America’s Before European Expansion World History 1010—Lecture and Book Notes Weeks 7 and 8 The Europeans had guns but the Native Americans didn’t (this was a big advantage and control point for the Europeans). The Aztec capital was Tenochtitlan (now Mexico City.) The Aztec empire was fairly new. One could rise socially by ability, success, talent, warfare success, etc. (They were a military group of people.) Violence was reflected in their religion. They believed that their duty was to feed the sun god with beating human hearts. The people that were sacrificial victims (those who got their hearts torn out of their chest) were conquered people, prisoners, etc. The sacrifices were a fear/control factor. Cortez encountered the Aztec empire with Montezuma being the Aztec ruler at the time. The Incas The Incan capital was at Cusco. Their style of empire was almost roman and very sophisticated. They divided their property into four parts (The 4 quarters). They had a very “command” economy (completely directed by the government). They kept record by a device known as a quipu. They had an emperor known as “the Inca”. When the emperor died, the Incans lacked the orderly transfer from one emperor to the next—this would cause civil war to break out of who would be the next emperor. This made it easy for Pissarro (a conquistador) to take over. He kidnapped the emperor and ended up executed him. European Expansion Wealth was the most important motive to conquer/have conquests. The spread of religion was the next reason. The biggest consequence of European expansion was disease, which was fatal due to the Native American’s lack of immunity and their isolation issues. Disease was also a way that control took place—a sick person from Europe would intentionally come to where the Native Americans were, so that they (The Native Americans) could get sick and a lack of “good health” population could occur, so that control could easily be taken over. The Columbian exchange was an exchanged system. Coffee was exchanged, taken by the Europeans from Africa (birthplace of coffee). Chocolate and sugar were also greatly exchanged along with potatoes and tomatoes. LECTURE #19: 7/15/16 (Colonial Latin America, French Absolutism) Amerindian Society A demographic and dramatic decline of population happened due to warfare, brutality, and mainly disease. Those who survived had a hard life due to harsh treatments. The Encomienda system granted the Spaniards to requisition as much labor as they wanted to put forth—this gave the right to enslave people. They were worked firstly and mostly in the mines. The slaves were also heavily taxed. Many Indian slaves would run due to all of this. For the Indians, the arrival of the Europeans was a disaster. Spanish America Rapidly, a new world aristocracy was formed in the Americas—those who dominated. They arrived out of large plantation like farms called Haciendas. The viceroys were “the men on the scene” for the king. This gave Spaniards new job opportunities. The clergy was interested in what was going on so they decided to make an elaborate copy of the European churches. The church did make an effort to almost blend in, there would be some cultural accommodations. The Spanish/Portuguese depended on the clergy to serve in their government because they were intelligent and well educated enough to help out/resolve any problems. World History 1010—Lecture and Book Notes Weeks 7 and 8 There were 2 ethnic groups—Europeans and Indians, along with a 3 —mixed Europeans and Indian children, known as Mestizos. Soon the Africans were also imported which led to the th th 4 group. European and African children were known as Mulattoes, and also the 5 group. The society of Castas was a society that was hierarchally arranged with European people being at the top. There was a distinction between Creoles and Peninsulares—Creoles were those who were born in the Americas but were Europeans, Peninsulares were people that were European but came to the Americas. People that were born in the Americas were considered to be more middle class. Enlightenment and Bourbon Reforms The government wanted to reform and make things work much differently, better, rationally, etc. People didn’t want fixing the government to happen due to them liking it the way it was. The colonies of Latin America broke away from Spain and Portugal as a result, this break away is also known as decolonization. Henry IV An absolute monarch is all-powerful—1) can declare war 2) can make laws 3) can tax. They don’t share power with any other institution. Henry IV was one of the first of the bourbon monarchs. His first decade in reign was spent ending the wars of religion. After ending the war, he was in a lot of debt, because war is expensive. His right hand man was, Sully, who constructed a way of trying to make France financially stable again. Taxes started off not being collected the same way everywhere. The north of France was actually being taxed, but the south of France was basically tax-free. Henry and Sully wanted to create uniformity between the 2 parts. The first provinces to be uniformed were the ones that Henry was from. Henry ended up being assassinated by a catholic who was mad about the toleration law of the Protestants that Henry put up. Louis XIII Louis XIII was 9 at the time of his succession to the throne, which meant that his mom, Marie de Medici was the regent. She didn’t know what she was doing and spent a lot of money trying to get people to behave during her rule. Her policies were very pro-catholic. She undid everything Sully and Henry accomplished. Louis chose his right had man to be Richelieu—these 2 were an absolutist team. La Rochelle was “the capital” of Protestantism. Richelieu took on La Rochelle, which made sure that the Protestants wouldn’t be a war threat. Richelieu proposed the creation of new bureaucrats called intendants—they were control agents that would be in each province to make sure people were doing what they were supposed to do, and reporting to Louis and Richelieu if they weren’t.
