Dgh - Spanish Inquisition - 0 views

  • Records show about 2,000 people were sentenced to die in Spain alone and over the course of the inquisition thousands were killed. Many things caused the Inquisition, and there were many lasting effects.

      These lasting effects stated here was that now in Spain 97% of the population is now catholic which conveys how the Spanish Inquisition is close to becoming all-catholic however, many perished to come to this state.
  • This made Spain a predominantly Catholic society,which changed many aspects of their country and impacted the life in Spanish colonies in the new world.

      The Spanish Inquisition was also brought towards the lands Spain colonized spreading Catholicism and dominating over other religions.

Weird religious practices of the middle ages - 0 views

  • Puss-Drinking and Scab-Eating--The general populace scorned lepers for their appearance and disease. As an act of humility and caring, many female saints such as St. Catherine would care for these "untouchables" by licking away the puss in their wounds then eating the scabs. People considered these saints especially holy.
  • These men would take a ladder, climb up to the top of a ruined Roman column, sit down, and then kick away the ladder, vowing to remain there contemplating God until they died.
  •  
    These are some of the most bizarre medieval religious practices.

What is another name historians give to the "middle ages"? - Yahoo! Answers - 0 views

  • Generally, the Middle Ages, or Medieval Era (means the same thing), runs from the fall of Rome to the fall of Constantinople. There's considerable disagreement about the "Dark Ages": almost every reputable modern history book rejects this term. With new research, scholars have shown that the popular mythos built up regarding the so-called Dark Ages is completely false. Most of the common people had decent living standards, including sanitation and bathing (which did not go out of fashion until after the Black Death), science and scientific discoveries, and even today studies are proving that many of the old herbals were correct in their observations.

Charlemagne's Biography - 0 views

  •  
    The greatest of medieval kings was born in 742, at a place unknown. He was of German blood and speech, and shared some characteristics of his people- strength of body, courage of spirit, pride of race, and a crude simplicity many centuries apart from the urbane polish of the modern French. He had little book learning; read only a few books- but good ones; tried in his old age to learn writing, but never quite succeeded; yet he could speak old Teutonic and literary Latin, and understood Greek.
