AP Review Lecture 1

1400-1600


The end of the middle ages

The End of the Middle Ages…

  • Crises in the 14th century undermined Medieval Europe.

    • Decline of the Roman Catholic Church- Babylonian Captivity- French Pope is elected (Clement V) and moves the papacy to Avignon where it remains for 70 years.

    • Great Schism- 1377 Pope Gregory XI moves the papacy back to Rome. Urban VI, an Italian is elected Pope upon Gregory’s death. French cardinals were upset about an Italian Pope and thus elected their own Clement VII who ruled from Avignon.

    • From 1378-1417 there were 2 Popes. France and it’s allies supported the Avignon Pope and England and France’s enemies supported the Roman Pope.

    • Council of Pisa- 1409 deposed both Pope’s and elected Alexander V- now there were three popes because the original 2 refused to step down.

    • Council of Constance- 1414-1418- ended the Great Schism- Martin V is the new and only Pope.

    • Heresy- teaching that is contrary to the Church

      • Wycliffe- translated the bible into English and rejected the authority of the papacy and hierarchy of the Church, denounced the wealth and corruption of the church. His followers were known as Lollards

      • Jan Hus- Followers were the Hussites, his ideas foreshadowed Luther’s and he was burned at the stake for heresy.

  • The Black Death- 35-65% of the European population died, hit the poor the hardest because it struck urban areas the worst.

  • Loss of Population causes an economic decline, but also led to a decline in serfdom and the manorial system (medieval practices)

  • Black death provoked intense superstition and hysteria in Europe and led to increased persecution of the Jews.


Growth of nation states

Growth of Nation States

  • England-

    • Hundred Years War (1337-1453)- between England and France, disastrous an weakened both countries.

    • War of the Roses (1455-1485)- Civil War in England- Lancaster vs. York and established Henry VII (Henry Tudor) as the king of England. Henry VII restored authority to the monarchy, reduced the power of the nobility to increase his power, created a surplus in the treasurery and mended foreign affairs with most countries.

  • France- Louis XI, recovered from the Hundred Years War devastation and regained France’s position as the leading power of Europe.

    • Centralized bureaucracy and weakened nobility

    • Created an effective army, used diplomacy in foreign affairs

    • King Francis I centralized the monarchy and strengthened the army.

      • Intervened in Italy and went to war with Charles V, Hapsburg, who was king of the HRE and of Spain.


Growth of nation states1

Growth of Nation States

  • Spain- Reconquista of Spain concluded in 1492- the Muslims were expelled from Spain by Ferdinand and Isabella.

    • They combined kingdoms and strengthened the monarchy and the army. Christopher Columbus discovered the new world.

    • They gained control over the Catholic Church in Spain and created the Inquisition, an important instrument of power for the monarchy. Torquemada served as chief inquisitor.

    • Ferdinand and Isabella believed that religious unity was crucial to political unity, so in 1492, all Spanish Jews had to adopt Christianity or get out of Spain. Converted Jews were constantly hounded by the inquisition and many were expelled from Spain regardless of conversion.

  • Holy Roman Empire- Strong monarchies emerge in Spain, France and England, but the German lands, the HRE, remained decentralized.

    • Charles V became HRE and Spanish King.

    • Involved in a bitter war with Francis I of France over Burgandian lands and Italian lands.

    • Also faced Martin Luther’s reformation in Germany.

    • 1556- Charles V abdicated, giving his Spanish lands to his son Philip II of Spain and his HRE lands to his younger brother Ferdinand I.


Renaissance 1350 1600

Renaissance 1350-1600

  • Renaissance means rebirth, involved an intense interest in the classical cultures of Greece and Rome. It also brought a secular spirit to Rome as people focused on this world and the individual vs. the Church and heaven.

  • Italy was divided politically but had lots of wealthy city-states (Florence, Venice, Rome and Milan…)

    • Florence- emerged as a major banking center. Ruled by an oligarchy- dominated by the Medici- had extensive interests in industry, trade and banking. Cosimo de ’Medici and Lorenzo the Great were the most famous.

    • Humanism (Petrarch) in Italy vs. Humanism in Northern Europe (Christian humanism, Erasmus)- Italian humanism focused on the classics, as did northern, but humanists in the north wanted to unite classical learning and the Christian faith, they wanted to educate in order to strengthen the church.

    • Be able to compare Humanism and Scholasticism (medieval philosophy)

    • Famous Figures- Machiavelli (prominent in Florence, The Prince- better to be feared than loved); Leonardo da Vinci (prominent painter, sculptor, scientist and inventor, Mona Lisa…), Michelangelo (prominent sculptor and painter, The David, Sistine Chapel Ceiling), Thomas More (English, northern humanist, Utopia), Donatello (famous sculptor, bronze David), Bruneschelli (the dome in Florence)

      • Make sure to know the characteristics of Renaissance art, classically themed, perspective, glorified the individual vs. the church…

    • Luther’s Beliefs: Justification by faith- solo scriptura, solo fidelis, solo Christ- the only path to salvation was through faith in Christ, there is nothing a believer can do to earn salvation.

    • 1519- Luther debates Johannes Eck at the Leipzig debate. This debate is important because it is what made Luther realize his beliefs really did differ from the church, and it showed the similarity of his beliefs to those of Jan Hus, a convicted heretic.

    • 1520- Pope Leo X excommunicates Luther

    • 1521- Diet of Worms- Luther refuses to recant and is declared an outlaw by Charles V, HRE.
