Daily Agenda

-OUS: This Suffix means “ is Filled With”

Momentous – filled with Importance; very significant


In 1960, lunch counters throughout the South remained segregated. While moderates urged patience, Joe McNeil and three other black college students disagreed. Calling segregation “evil pure and simple,” the four college students sat down at a Woolworth’s lunch counter in Greensboro, North Carolina, and ordered coffee and apple pie. Although the waitress refused to serve them, the students remained steadfast in their determination to desegregate the dining area. Now known as the Greensboro Four, the students ultimately prevailed. The sit-in movement begun by the Greensboro Four had MOMENTOUSconsequences. Just four years later, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 mandated desegregation in all public places.

Critical Thinking:
medieval economics

Due to Viking Invasions and the manor system, international trade crept to a halt in the Middle Ages

  • Manorialism dominated creating a local scale economic system in which each manor was self-sufficient
  • During the High Middle Ages, the Hanseatic League formed in Northern Germany to regulate trade and help to facilitate (at least) regional trade
  • In addition, trade fairs were held annually to reinvigorate trade
  • Locally, guilds formed to protect industries in the few cities that did exist. These would govern who entered the industry, prices, production, and quality.
  • Artisans would have to begin as an apprentice, work as a journeyman, and then became masters themselves.
Medieval Economics
investiture controversy

Investiture: Appointing local priests and bishops to church positions

  • Who’s job is this?
  • Kings battled with popes over this duty
  • Simony Selling of Church positions
  • HRE Henry IV appointed his chaplain Bishop of Milan, though Pope Gregory VII appointed another.
  • Pope excommunicates Henry IV.
  • Local nobles/princes support pope, forcing Henry IV to beg the pope for forgiveness.
  • In other cases, the pope threatened the use of the interdict to get monarchs to yield.
  • Concordat of Worms Kings invest Bishops with worldly authority, but not with sacred authority (They must be loyal to king, but kings no longer viewed as divine)
Investiture Controversy

Viking Invasions of France leave coastal region under control of Normans.

  • 1066 William of Normandy invades and conquers England
  • What problem might this create?
  • In England, abuse of monarchical power (taxation, imprisonment without fair trial, etc.) led the nobles to demand that King John sign the Magna Carta, establishing rule of law.
  • Over time, England’s political system changed slowly, with limits on the power of kings and the establishment of common law.
  • This stood in contrast to the very centralized power that existed in the hands of the Spanish and French monarchs.

  • Western (Great) Schism (1376-1417): Dispute between two popes led to division in Catholic Church, great confusion and loss of faith.
