Exam 2  (Sept. 26 , 2016) The Middle Ages  Classical rebirth of the Greeks and the Romans (western Europe); also known as the Renaissance  Early 500 – 1050   High 1050 – 1500  Middle Ages has three main subjects  1. Greco – Roman  Realizing that the past was a lot better than the present. Did not know how to make things as good as the Roman Empire did. 2. Germanic Tribes  Tribes that rose up. The toughest bunch of people in an incredibly rough area.  3. Christianity  The religion of the majority. Connected the people of the area. Lead by the Bishop of  Rome (the Pope). Decentralization:  Redistributing to different places. The Romans did this more than anything, to  ensure that the people living in Rome were protected.  Latifundia (plantations) new name is now “fief” or “fiefdom”: small farms   Farmers = “jobs for life”   Peasants and Serfs are bound to the land and are “stuck”, they can’t go anywhere.   Lord = Owns the fiefdom and protects the people in it   Security is the most important part of fiefdoms  Security: The Lord offers the best house around o If there is an invasion / attack, the peasants run to the Lord’s  house  o  A castle is now offered as the new defense system for the  peasants  Aristocracy: The upper class. The only people who can own land.  The Lords / members of Aristocracy become the Knights.   The Knights brought soldiers, which cost money due to: Horses       Armor        Weapons  The protectors are the ones who actually do the most harm because all they do is prepare for war  and they want to fight  The Pope realizes what is going on and commands the Knights to stop because it is against their  religion.  “Seasons of War”: Giving the Knights a time of year when they are permitted to fight.  Chivalry: A Christian philosophy, based off the idea of arête.  o If you are a knight, you must embrace other parts of life other than fighting.  For Example: Lady              Pope is over seeing everything
