- Travel: became more common, e.g: Pilgrimages to the Holy Land. Stories about these journeys were widely published and read.
Apart from trade and travel, other positive influences were political, art and finance...
- Political: international relations were developed through alliances and diplomatic ties between the East and West.
- Art: there was great interest in the arts and architecture between cultures. Arches, stonework and mosaic tiles on buildings began to change due to new influences.
- Finance: world trade boomed and banks were created to manage a large supply of money exchanged during trade of goods and services between the East and West.
