    In the trade networks between Africa and Eurasia from circa 300 C.E. to 1450 C.E., there were key continuities and changes. Although there was some continuity in Eurasian and African trade, it was mainly the key changes that led to advancements in technology, trade networks and involvement of other societies in trade. In 300 C.E., there was limited trade between Africa and Eurasia. The dominant civilizations involved in trade were China Rome, and India. Shortly after the classical civilizations fell, more trade networks were established involving Trans-Saharan trade, Islamic trade routes, and Indian Ocean trade as well as Mediterranean Sea involvement. These trade networks established a base for European trade to rise as a dominant force and African trade to become more centralized instead of being focused in the northern area.…

    Trade brought to the Christian world by the Islamic world boosted Europe’s economy greatly. Before the Crusades, trade in Europe was almost nonexistent, causing a negative impact on its economy. The Crusades, however, created a large influx of Muslim goods and luxuries. Want for these goods became very apparent with the rich giving the merchants the idea to create trade with the Islamic world. Preceding the 12th century, much of the Islamic and European trade was one sided, Islam exporting to Europe. However, during the 12th century, the major Islamic trading hub, Andalusia, helped Europe expand its exportation. Also, Muslims introduced and banking and credit system into Europe.…

    First the rise of Christianity start brought a new phase of history. The end of the ancient world which was the beginning of the Middle ages. Three religions emerged from the fall of the ancient world, these were Latin Christendom, Byzantium, and Islam. The Byzantium civilization was by far the most advanced out of the three civilizations economically and culturally speaking compared to the Latin west. This was during the time were very few westerners could read and write, though Byzantine scholars studied the literature, philosophy, science, and the law of ancient Greece and Rome because that was their culture. Islam was the next civilization to come after the fall of Rome which was based on the religion of Islam which was founded by Muhammad. Neither of these two civilizations provided any major breakthrough in science, or technology, philosophy, art, or economics or political thoughts which would help bring the middle ages to the modern world. It was the Latin Christendom who did this even though they were so far behind Islam and Byzantium culturally at first until after the twelfth century. Latin Christendom produced movements which brought the modern age to such things as the Renaissance, the Age of Enlightenment, the French Revolution, and the Industrial Revolution. It was in between the sixth and eighth centuries when the Europeans could barely recover from the chaos and disorder caused by the breakup of the Roman Empire. The Germanic kingdoms tried to bring back the roman civilization but they simply did not have enough political bases while fighting wars and having internal conflicts within their kingdoms. The Germans were strong warrior people and not really intelligent thinker…

    Japan and Europe during the middle ages had both been affected by agriculture, social classes, and lack of power from the king/emperor. For example, in each place, peasants provided food for the manor/village in exchange for protection from invaders. Politics also played a large role for each because they both had their own social classes. In Europe the king was on top, followed by lords, knights, and finally serfs. Japan, the shogun was on top, then the emperor, daimyo, samurai, and finally the peasants. The king and emperor were supposed to be in full control, but each was overpowered by another. In Europe many people was highly religious, so they ended up following the church instead of the king. In Japan the emperor was weak so he would take orders from the shogun so he may be able to rule the country. Overall, both Europe and Japan depended on agriculture to feed each social class in the manor/village that was ruled by a weak leader that either can’t rule on his own or competes to rule against another.…

    The roles which religion played in each culture prove how Europe was inferior to Japan in feudal times. During Europe's feudal period, the Catholic Church had an obscene amount of power. Its beliefs and doctrines affected every aspect of European society for every social class. Kings bowed down and submitted before popes, lest they be excommunicated. They became nothing more than puppets for the Catholic Church's power and were used to further its control. Governing decisions were no longer made in the best interest of the people, or even the state, but in the best interest of the Church. State and religion became so intertwined during this period that they were practically synonymous. The influence of the Church caused the prejudice and persecution of those of different religions, along with horrors such as the Spanish Inquisition and the Crusades. Hundreds of thousands died because of the greed and cruelty of the Catholic Church. In feudal Japan, state and religion were kept separate for the most part. Buddhism came to Japan 300 years before feudalism came into practice. It was the country's official religion throughout feudal Japan, but religious leaders did not try to control politics or society. This non-interference allowed the Shogun and Daimyos to rule successfully with only the best interest of their territory in mind. Buddhism, especially Zen Buddhism, which stressed meditation, simplicity and discipline, gradually influenced Japanese…

    Indian Ocean Trade

    After the collapse of the Roman Empire in 476 AD and the subsequent loss of the Meroe and Aksum as commercial entrepots, a void fell over trade in the Indian Ocean that would persist until 750 AD, which signaled the beginning of Muslim dominance in the area. Initially confined to the Persian Gulf, Muslims began to expand their circle of influence to the eastern coast of Africa. Like Meroe and Aksum, the eastern coast of Africa provided a pipeline to the interior luxuries of the continent, as well as to those of the Indian Ocean. However, unlike Meroe and Aksum, the sheer length of the coast allowed for it be more versatile in what it could produce and how it could sustain its civilization. As a result of this, the coast prospered in trade,…

    The Middle Ages is a period, more famous as “Dark Ages” due to the oppression and the corruption of the church, the Black Plague and the lack of progress in people’s life. The common event used to mark the beginning of the Middle Ages is the year the Western Roman Empire fell. One reason this year is not very accurate is that even though the western part fell, the eastern kept it up for another thousand years and its influence was still in power despite being weakened through the centuries. With the empire still remaining, from this point of view nothing has changed. However in the year 380 AD, Christianity became the state religion of the Roman Empire. This event more accurately marks the beginning of the Middle Ages because this religion…
