There were 4 major advancement in human civilization that happened during the 1200 - 1600. Those four grate advancement in human civilization were:
They each had a great cause an effect that helped modern day human civilization advance as it has. If it weren't for these four great advancements the world not be the way it is today. There would probably monarchs all over the world still and no democracy. There also would be a plethora of non-educated poor, which would still be called surfs.
The 4 great advancements have and always will leave a mark on our population. The 4 great advancements might not have happened without the influential people who started them wanting better life and rights. Those great achievements started with The Magna Carta and ended with a great improvement in our society. The renaissance was a time of humanism. The Printing press started a restart of education. Finally the Reformation stated that the church shouldn't lie to the peasants to make them work harder for a lord. These are and always will be 4 great advancements during the 1200 - 1600.
The Magna Carta was a document that limited the power of kings in Britain. The reason the Magna Cartawas so important was because it equiredKing John of England to proclaim certain rights (pertaining to freemen), respect certain legal procedures, and accept that his will could be bound by the law. It explicitly protected certain rights of the King's subjects, whether free or fettered — and implicitly supported what became the writ of habeas corpus, allowing appeal against unlawful imprisonment.
The Renaissance was a time of growing knowledge for the poor, the idea of humanism and the idea of free thinking. This happened all through out Europe during 1300 - 1600 AC. The idea of Humanism was that human had the ability to do anything. The outcome was new thought about the religion and life. This is the time of Da Vinci and Michelangelo who showed the beauty of the human body, with this fascination the study of the human anatomy began. Which helped form the scientific discoveries of the body we have today. This was also the restart of manners in the modern world. The renaissance started in Italy.
The Printing Press was probably the greatest invention of this time. This made books cheaper and easier to afford for the poor. This intern caused many poor citizens who couldn't read before to learn how to read. The printing press was invented in Germany by a man named Johann Gutenberg. He invented it in 1440 in Mainz. It was the greatest invention of that period of time because the church couldn't lie about things that were written in the bible. This was the major factor for increase in knowledge. An average printer could print 500 books in the same time as a monk took to make 1.
The Reformation was started in 1517 when Martin Luther wrote the Ninety-Five-Theseswhich were against the churches bad practices. One theses Luther strongly disputed their claim that freedom from God's punishment of sin could be purchased with money. Martin Luther taught that salvation is not from good works, but a free gift of God, received only by grace through faith in Jesus as redeemer from sin.He then posted these Ninety-Five-Theseson a castle in Wittenberg. These were then taken and copied and copied until it was spread all over northern Europe. This caused the reformation of the church and a new branch of Christianity to be formed called Protestant, and those who followed Luther’s teaching became know as the Lutherans . During a revolt Martin Luther told the princes of Germany to kill the revolt with no mercy. Feeling betrayed most peasants rejected Luther's teaching after that. This Mainly happened in Germany and other close by countries. The Protestant religion has split many times to form a jumble of beliefs.
