  • There are obviously some smart people on these boards that have interest in history. I have a test tomorrow and have a couple study questions that I need some one else's voice on.

    1. Explain the relationship of Manorialism and Feudalism. Use the example of William the Conquerer's feudal system in England to explain how the feudalism worked as an effective political system.

    2. Discuss Pope Gregory VII's idea of the Papal Monarchy. Give examples of how Gregory and his successors attempted to enforce this concept on the Kings of Europe.

    3. Discuss how the kings of Europe consolidated their power at the expenseof their vassals and the church. Choose a country and the techniques that successions used to consolidate their power.

    4. Describe the Babylonian Captivity and the Great Schism. Did these events hurt the church? Explain your answer using specific historical examples.

    Only two of those four are on the test. If you can answer any one or more I will give you reps for life.

            • Well, I'm doing this off the top of my head so they're going to be pretty basic answers but can maybe give you something to work off.

              Babylonian captivity-I'm assuming this question is referring to the 'second' Babylonian captivity when the papacy moved to Avignon, France. This hurt the church because at the time there were multiple 'popes' ( 3 at one point I believe) in Avignon and Rome claiming the rights to the papacy and excommunicating each other. I think I'd probably note that certain nations and their secular leaders ultimately had to side with one position or the other and this probably undermined the position of the Catholic church in Europe because there was no clear leader of the Catholic church. So the church was essentially without a uniform pope until the problem was solved at the Council of Constance when Martin V was elected as the true pope. How was the church supposed to provide spiritual guidance for others when it was conflicting within itself?

                • Feudalism is a system where one family or nobleman (the King) is the owner of all the land, and it is 'given out' to nobles. As payment, these nobles pledge their allegiance to the king, providing him with income (through taxation of the peasents and other inhabintants of the lands) and, if necessary, armies.
                  That's essentially how it worked.

                  But there's probably history buffs here who can explain it better. I'm just a political science freshman.

                  • The answer to Question 4 is obvious. The Great Schism completely broke the church in half, with many in Eastern Europe and Russia forming the Eastern Orthodox Church based in Byzantium. This came after long debates about both the practice and theology behind Christianity.

                        If the question is asking about the Babylonian captivity in the same sentence as the great schism, I don't think its referring to the east-west schism but rather the great schism within the western church.


                        I'm real busy today TJ but if I get the chance I'll try to help ya out with some of the others if you want it. You'd probably hit the jackpot if you got BF51 in here to help ya out.

                          True, the time periods don't match

                          • Bf can't be bribed with reps lol. I tried more than once.

                            Titletown is right in regards to the time period of the Great Schism.

                            The test is on Wednesday so I'll most likely be spending the majority of tomorrow studying for this.

                            Any help is appreciated.

                              This thread is ******* awesome. I'm going to use this explanation in my history tutorial in about an hour or so lol.
