Storyboard Text

  • King John had angered his people by getting England placed under the interdict banishing all church services in all of England, losing the war against King Phillip II of France and giving up lands in Anjou and Normandy, and raising taxes; the nobles had had enough. He was forced to sign the Magna Carta, a document which gave the people of England many feudal rights, by his own nobles. One of the most important clauses protected all of the freemen from legal action unless approved by his peers or by the law. It also stopped the king from raising new taxes without his Great Council and the Church. The two main ideas of the Magna Carta were nobles had specific rights and not even the king was above the law.
  • The king has push us too far
  • Sign it!
  • The Crusades began when Pope Urban II persuaded the knights and nobles to take action and free the Holy Land. The knights were motivated by religion, their sense of adventure, and the chance to win land and riches or escape their home-lives. The pope hoped to unite the churches and stop the fighting between the knights so they would join together against the Muslims while also gaining power for himself. Although many left only few returned. The closest they got to succeeding was in the First Crusade when they captured Jerusalem then slaughtered the Jewish and Muslim population within the city. Though the city was taken over by the Muslim leader Salah al-Din which started the Third Crusade where they failed to retake it. Throughout the Crusades they didn't actually free the Holy Land but Jerusalem was opened back up to religious pilgrimages.
  • God wills it!
  • I am going to get rich
  • I can increase my power and unite the Roman and Byzantine churches. Genius! Hopefully this will bring the knights together to fight the Muslims
  • God wills it!
  • Adventure!
  • Free the Holy Land!
  • The bubonic plague, also known as the Black Death, spread through Europe killing one in three people. It was spread through fleas on rats which would infest anything from ships to the homes of the rich; no one was safe from the disease. Some people believed that the rapid-spreading disease was a punishment from God and would whip themselves to repent their sins. While others indulged themselves because they accepted that they would die anyway. Christians believed that is was caused by the Jews who were thought to have poisoned the wells.
  • We must repent our sins so God will forgive us and lift His punishment
  • This is all caused by the Jews they poisoned the wells
  • I must get inside before the disease spreads to me
  • In the Church's weakened state, preachers would challenge the Church and its power. A preacher, named John Wycliffe, claimed that the Bible was the truth of Christianity, not the Church, and that it should be translated so that the people could read the Bible themselves and determine what it means to them. Another man, named Jan Hus, and his followers called for reforms in the Church. He was later burned at the stake for heresy because he preached ideas that contradicted Church teachings.
  • The Bible should be translated so that everybody can read it!
  • Yeah
  • Joan of Arc was a seventeen year old peasant girl who claimed to have been sent by God to save France. She persuaded the king of France to let her lead his army. Joan brought hope to the French troops and led the army to several victories. She was later captured by England and burned at the stake for witchcraft. Her execution empowered the French troops. She was later proclaimed a saint by the Church.
  • I will give you an army
  • God has sent me to save France!
  • The Hundred Years' War began because Edward III of England claimed to be the rightful ruler of France. This caused war to break out between the two countries. In the beginning England was winning the war thanks to the longbow which could shoot three arrows in the time it took a normal bow and arrow to shoot one, it also pierced all armor but the thickest and heaviest. The war soon turned around after a peasant girl, named Joan of Arc, started to lead the French troops and even after her execution she continued to inspire them. The French attacked English castles with their new weapon, the cannon, and eventually the English only controlled the port of Calais in the northwestern part of France.
  • For England!
  • For France!
