Storyboard Text

  • We bow to you King Louis IX!
  • King Louis IX of France was perhaps the most generous and giving king of France. He took over the throne in 1226. Louis was a very religious man. He led thousands of French knights into two wars against Muslims. He also expanded royal courts and outlawed private wars. Everyone felt a loyal, national feeling around ho, Louis was declared a saint 30 years after his death.
  • We thank you endlessly for your generous alms.
  • After a lot of turmoil to Christian communities like setting fire to Christians and attempting to depopulate them, Pope Urban II then called for a crusade to free the Christians and the Holy Land. Crusades benefited Europeans and modernized them. The Crusades increased the process of using a money economy. Nobles needed money to get to the Holy Land, so they began to allow peasants to pay money towards rent instead of labor. This also helped to undermine serfdom. Monarchs also adopted the ability to levy taxes to go towards the payments for the Crusades.
  • Paying with money is so much easier. All that labor really takes a toll on my body.
  • I know, the crusade really changed our society!
  • The Black Death was an immense plague that hit Europe. The disease was also called the Bubonic Plague, which was spread by fleas on rats. This plague caused trade to decrease, since there were fewer workers and fewer products produced. This caused inflation. People did not know how to stop the disease, so they believe magic and witchcraft would help to cure it. They believed the plague was brought on by God to punish people for their wrong doings. They would even whip themselves to serve as penance. The plague also affected the church, which made Pop Clement V move the papal court to Avignon, in France. It stayed there for around 70 years, where it was controlled under French ruling. It took the Europeans more than 100 years to recover from this terrible illness.
  • I really hope I don't get what this guy has...
  • Why God? Why did you curse me with this deadly disease? What did I do to deserve this?
  • The Hundred Years' War was fought between Britain and France. The war began when the English king wanted to reclaim the French land of their ancestors. He then declared that he was the King of France. The British had a very big advantage because of their invention of the longbow. The French had no lead until Joan of Arc came along. Joan was a young peasant woman who claimed she was sent by God to lead the French in the war. She asked the king of France if she could help the army and he agreed. The French became much more motivated and began to win more battles. Though there was no clear winner, new technology emerged, soldiers became more important, and castles began to disappear because of forceful weaponry.
  • Yes Sir!
  • I expect all of you to go out there and give it your all! Fight for France and keep us all safe.
  • Castles were the pinnacles of Medieval times. With the elegant architecture and strong form, they could catch the attention of anyone. Castles had six main components to make them up: the dungeon, the lord's chambers, the battlements, the great hall, the gardens, and walls and towers. Cathedrals were also other great examples of architecture built during that time. An architectural theme used was typically the Gothic design. Flying buttresses were key components of the Gothic style. These were stone supports that stand outside of the church. Stained-glass windows were also essential to Gothic architecture, and typically had images in them.
  • Our castle is finally finished being built! Look how beautiful, we should invite everyone on the town over!
  • Medieval Universities were being developed in the 1100s. Medievel Europe was constantly evolving, so they needed a school environment for students to learn. Schools weren't permanent, meaning classes were held in rented rooms or choir lofts and not in actual schools. There were seven main subjects during that time: arithmetic (math), geometry, astronomy, music, grammar, rhetoric, and logic. To earn a degree or bachelor of arts, it took about three to six years. Women were not allowed to attend schools. It was made primarily for men, so women could stay at home and learn their craft there.
  • My Philsophy class really changed my perspective on religion today.
