What connections can make to previous learning experiences
This week, through our readings and discussion, we have studied the world of the Middle Ages and how information was transmitted across continents from Mongol and Islamic conquests, trade, and other forms of interaction. In addition, we have addressed the following course objectives:
Identify and critically analyze the influence of society in the Middle Ages upon those that would follow and evolve into nation-states by examining socio-economic, religious, and political influences.
Comprehend the influences of religion, philosophy, and economics in the development of civilizations during this period that led to the later Western European Renaissance, Reformation, and Colonization.
