  • Although I would add that the Great Schism occured at the same time as the Hundred Years War and the Black Death, two events which also greatly undermined the existing political/cosmological/theological order.

    It's important tomake the distinction that while these events likely hurt the CHURCH, they did NOT hurt Christianity (so much as something called Christianity could really exist), it mostly led to people looking for spiritual answers outside of the church, not the absence of religion altogether.

    • Addict's feudalism answer is a good one, although a lot of scholars would argue there never was such a thing as feudalism (I wouldn't go there though, cause you would have to explain why).

      • Feudalism was the second era on age of empires 2. Right after dark age and before castle age. That is the A+ answer.

                    • I'm so glad to have BF51 on these forums. :)

                      All of us current history majors must unite!

                      History really isn't that difficult compared to other social science majors, though it is nice to 'share' each others' gift of knowledge whenever possible.

                      It'd be nice to keep this thread active for those that enjoy the discipline.

                      • Civ 2 was the bomb. This one time I started on my own huge island. I got so far on that one before my computer crashed. Starting on your own island is the best, there are no competitors and so you can build up a strong area full of roads and trade. From there, I moved to the closest island and wiped out eveyone along the way except for Carthage, my ally, and Persia, who I was at war with. That was a tough war since I had to transport an army across to a new continent and then found a base city there. But I was doing pretty well.

                        I miss that saved game :(

                          It went the way of the dodo pretty quickly when I first started it. Rutgers has a good history department so I'm glad I was able to learn from some of the professors there. I'm also glad it's what I graduated with even though it doesn't help me get a job anywhere considering I don't want to be a teacher.

                              Civ 1/CivNet will always be my favourite, probably cause it was the first game I ever really played a lot. I still remember my save game that my mum deleted where I was about 10 turns from having a town in every spot possible basically(without overlapping grids) and the entire world irrigated and railroaded and one little Zulu town surrounded by tanks where Perth is in reality(they respawned in Australia). It was an epic adventure I was so pissed when it went bye bye...

                                I don't know how much I buy that certain majors are really easier than others, you get out of any major what you put into it. That goes for college in general too. You can get much the same education at a state school for undergrad as you can at an expensive private school if you put the effort into it.
