In Europe there is a big epidemic that is killing two-thirds of Europe’s population. That epidemic was called the Black Plaque. There were three big responses to the black plaque in Europe and those responses were greed, religion, and scientific reasoning. The first big response to the black plaque was greed. The black plaque allowed people to take money from people after they died, and sought out money from their heirs. Many nurses back then found out they can kill their patients faster, and get there pay quicker if they just killed them off, this is what most nurses did back then, and there greed for money blinded them from their motives for becoming nurses. “The demand for nurses in Barcelona was so great that they were hard to find. Many times all they did was to make the patients die more quickly, because the sooner they died, the sooner the nurses collected the fees they had agreed on.” (Document 11). Another reason was so heirs could get money faster if they killed the people higher up in the family. “About 40 people at Casale in Western Lombardy smeared the bolts of the town gates with an ointment to spread the plaque. Those who touched the gates were infected and many died. The heirs of the dead and diseased had actually paid people at Casale to smear the gates in order to obtain there inheritances more quickly.” (Document 4). The second big response to the black plaque was religion. The black plaque allowed people to move away or get closer to religion, people that got closer, prayed more and performed many ceremonies. One of them believed in a piece of bread touched by a Saint, and gave it to her sick husband. “My husband Ottavio had a malignant fever. We were sure he would die. Sister Angelica del Macchia, prioress at Crocetta, sent me a little piece of bread that had touched the body of St. Domenica. I fed it to my husband and suddenly the fever…...

German Peasant Revolt Dbq

...German Peasant Revolt DBQ  The German peasants of the 1524-1526 revolts were caused by interpretations of Lutheran ideals, the peasants desires to break free from serfdom, and the general search for equality in the eyes of god. The response to the peasant revolts varied among the social, political, and religious affiliations, ranging from cruel condemnation to fervent support of their cause. The rebels organized swiftly and fought hard, this determination helped achieve social reform, which the most important German reformer, Martin Luther, was completely opposed to.  Though the revolts were blamed on Lutheran reforms (Doc 1), Luther himself vehemently refuted the dispute (Doc 7). He refers to the peasants as dogs and is generally cruel towards their cause. Though a religious reformer, his dependence on the German nobility would not allow him to support the peasants; therefore his point of view is one in support of quelling the rebellions. The peasants may not have had the support of their greatest religious inspiration but they still drew on his word in order to justify their fight. The peasants claim that because all men are equal under the eyes of god, they have just as much divine right as the nobles do (Doc 3). These religious drives were set out in the Articles of The Peasants of Memmingen and would be responded to by the nobles, thus connecting Docs 3 and 4.  The nobles would retort to the religious grounds of the peasants by ensuring them that their salvation was......

The Black Death

...The Black Death was in Europe during 1347 and ended in 1351. The Black Death took many lives in Europe during the renaissance. During the 5 years of terror the Black Death took 20 million lives. The Black Death was a major event because of the huge death toll it collected by the end of it all. The plague took 20 million lives in Europe which was almost one third of the population. The plaque arrived by sea in October 1347 when twelve Genoese trading ships docked in Messina after a long trip on the Black Sea. The sailors who survived the trip were greatly ill and this came as a surprised to the people who were at the dock to greet them. The ill had fevers, could not keep food down, and were delirious from pain. The weirdest part of it all was the black boils on their skin the oozed out blood and pus. The Sicilian authorities made the ships leave immediately but it was too late and the Black Death would terrorize Europe for the next five years. The Black Death was highly contagious many believed that even the touching of clothes would spread the disease. Many people believed the disease was a divine punishment from god because of all the sinning that was going on during the time period. Many believed that to make the plague go away they needed to be forgiving by god and they thought they could do this by getting of trouble makers and heretics and many Jews were massacred during 1348 and 1349. The plague just seemed to go away because everyone had died or been exposed......

Dbq Essay

...DBQ Essay-Ratification of the Constitution: The Federalists’ Stance The ratification of the constitution was a process which was very controversial and tedious. The people chose sides because they were undereducated about the constitution and were easily influenced. The Federalists’ supported the ratification of the constitution because the Articles of Confederation was falling apart and was causing many domestic and foreign distresses. Massachusetts was perhaps most against the new constitution but even the editor of the Massachusetts Sentinel had to agree that the A.O.C could not be. The editor writes in his newspaper of the many domestic and foreign issues facing our country. He describes them as such “… the complaints of our farmers… the complaints of every class of public creditors…the melancholy faces of our working people…our ships rotting in our harbors…the insults that are offered to the American name and character in every court of Europe…View these things fellow citizens, and then say that we do not require a new, protecting, and efficient federal government if you can.” The editor proves how deplorable the domestic issues are and how pitiful the foreign are getting. He recognizes many issues that anti-federalists overlook in hunger for power control. This editor says that these domestic and foreign issues are a result of the A.O.C and that change was required to ease the hardships the American people were facing. Even what some people consider our......

...Marcus Garvey was a Jamaican-born black nationalist who created a 'Back to Africa' movement in the United States. He became an inspirational figure for later civil rights activists. Marcus Garvey encouraged African people around the world to be proud of their race and to see beauty in their own kind. A central idea to Garveyism was that African people in every part of the world were one people and they would never advance if they did not put aside their cultural and ethnic differences and contrast. He led a movement that articulated a distinctively nationalist approach to African American identity and politics. This movement, which he founded, was called the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA). The Universal Negro Improvement Association is dedicated to racial pride, economic self-sufficiency, and the formation of an independent black nation in Africa. It is an educational, institutional, constructive, and expansive association that does its work to uplift the people of African Ancestry of the world. I think that what the Universal Negro Improvement Association stands for is relevant today. Just like during Garvey’s travels he believed that uniting the ‘blacks’ was the only way to improve conditions. If they just come together and fight with love, faith, and charity they can accomplish what is needed and would be blessed. Oppressing the weak will only lead to confusion and further turmoil. Present day there are still minority groups who are being taken......

Us 1993 Dbq

...1993 DBQ Essay In the 1600s there was still much to uncover in the New World. People from all over set out to discover what they could, and settle in this unknown territory. The English colonists came to the New World and settled in the New England and Chesapeake regions. The New England colonies developed differently than the Chesapeake colonies due to their differing motivations for settlement, social systems, and economic emphasis. In the early 17th Century the Puritans settled in New England, forming the Massachusetts Bay Colony. The Massachusetts settlers were first and foremost interested in religion. They had come to America to separate themselves from the English Anglican Church and to be able to practice their beliefs freely. As shown by Document B, the first member listed - and therefore the most prominent figure - on one of the ships bound for New England was a minister, underlying the importance the Puritans placed on religion. Accordingly, Document A shows how John Winthrop, Governor of Massachusetts Bay Colony, desired to achieve the ideal Puritan city, a “city upon a hill,” that provided other Puritan towns a perfect example of what to be like. The settlers wanted to create a permanent religious settlement with a strong sense of a Puritan community in which everyone helped out and was kind to one another. Their shared interest in religion enabled them to get along well with each other and keep their colony organized, with documents such as the Articles......

Buddhism in China Dbq

...Buddhism in China DBQ Depending on the political stability, the responses to Buddhism in China were different. Between 220 CE and 570 CE, a time of political instability, most people had positive attitudes towards Buddhism, and after 570 CE, a time of political stability, most people had negative attitudes towards Buddhism. Most positive attitudes towards Buddhism occurred between 220 CE and 570 CE due to a need for a sense of salvation. According to Buddha, Buddhism is all about sorrow. Buddha believed that life was surrounded by sorrow, no matter what class in society a person was. He believed the basic teachings of Buddhism had to do with sorrow; what it is, where it comes from, and how to stop it. (Doc. 1) Zhi Dun, a Chinese scholar, author, and confidant of Chinese aristocrats, believed that people who served Buddha all throughout their lives would end up in Nirvana. The goals of Buddhism were to end up in Nirvana. Buddhism was very appealing during a time of instability like the Era of Division. (Doc 2) Also, according to an anonymous Chinese scholar, Confucius is not as good as Buddha. The scholar was very positive towards Buddhism. This was also in a time of political instability. (Doc 3) Zong Mi, a leading Buddhist scholar in the ninth century also believed Buddha taught well. Even though China was in a state of stability, he still had a positive attitude towards Buddhism. He believed that both Buddha and Confucius were good teachers. (Doc 5) However, most......

...DBQ: “ Jacksonians Democrats viewed themselves as the guardians of the United States Constitution, political democracy, individual liberty, and equality of economic opportunity. In light of the following documents and your knowledge of the 1820’s and 1830’s, to what extent do you agree with the Jacksonians’ view of themselves? According to the Jacksonians, they were guardians of the United States Constitution, political democracy, individual liberty, and equality of economic opportunity; this I agree with, for the most part. There are things in which evidence does not support the Jacksonians’ protection of the U.S Constitution and individual liberty. However, there are multiple examples of the Jacksonians guarding political democracy and equality of economic opportunity. Many documents from the time period of the 1820’s to the 1830’s provide obvious proof of the Jacksonians’ preservation of political democracy and equality of economic opportunity. The Jacksonians plainly guarded the political democracy through the people’s part as a whole in government, (doc E) especially in elections. Some refer to “democracy” as “mob rule” and with good reason as (doc E) Philip Hone’s Diary of Philip Hone described many riots during the election times. These riots seem negative as persecution of blacks also took place during the election and law riots, but nevertheless theses riots are evidence of political democracy. The Jacksonians’ claims to conserving political democracy are also......

Ap European History Black Plague Dbq

...who, like all the other medical personal was desperate to try anything that could cure this deadly disease. Similarly, H. de Rochas, a French physician who wrote The Reform of Medicine, described the toads that were hanging around the necks of people infected with the plague with hope that the venom of the toad would suck the poison from the disease (Doc 10). The motto of Fillipo and the writings of Rochas related to each other, as they were both one of thousands of European physicians during the time of the Black Death that tried desperately to find a cure to the disease and to stop it from spreading. Rochas wrote about the toads curing the disease because it reflected what he personally saw the plague-stricken people doing during the time of the death. Most of all, these physicians were prime examples of people who have formed their own beliefs and concerns with regard to the plague of the 1300’s. Another group who formed their own concerns and beliefs about the black plague were the European travelers who were transported to several countries infected by the epidemic and formed their own beliefs and concerns. By way of illustration, Heinrich von Staden traveled to Russia during the year of 1571, and wrote about the window-boarding of every pestilence infected home, how people died of hunger in their own houses and the closure of roads and highways forbidding people to travel from one town to another (Doc 5). Another traveler by the name of Sir John Reresby created a......

Witch Craze Dbq

...Emily Byford AP European History Mr. Ehrean Research Paper Witch Craze DBQ During the 15th, 16th, and 17th centuries in Europe, the persecution of of individuals as witches was common. Witches were persecuted in most of Europe, and trials were held anywhere from Germany to France. At least 100,000 accused witches were put on trial. People were persecuted for reasons such as differences in social class or gender. Others were put on trial because of a personal disagreement or conflict with an accuser. Still, others were accused because numerous people hoped to gain wealth from the prosecution. The persecution of people as witches in Europe was widely based on personal matters. A difference in the way someone looked or acted made some people question if he or she practiced sorcery. This is stated by W. Fulbecke in 1618. He expressed that the elderly were not a wholesome and virtuous group of people, and as they aged, they purposefully spreaded the disease of malevolence to society. "The bodies of aged persons are impure... they use their very breath and their sight... to the vexation and destruction of others." (Fulbecke, 1618). Fulbecke believed that because the elderly were generally weak, the Devil inhabited them and controlled them to destroy others. Women were accused of sorcery and witchcraft much more than men were. "Women are naturally more impressionable, and more ready to receive the influence of a disembodied spirit; and when they use this quality well......

Yet, the term that Ghettopoly game uses are offensive and looks it pointing to the black people. For example, they use like, playas, pimps, Marijuana, hos, crack addicts refers to Americans imagined in black experience; Those terms and images are spread throughout our young society. but it is a stereotype to just point it toward black people because not all black people use those kind of terms, and it makes black people look bad and irresponsible.

...themselves but also within the people there. For New England, many religious persons were naturally attracted to the land being the New England was very tolerant of all religions. There were predominately whites and their families populated there (doc 2). Families were often founded under religious ways including ideologies of Quakers, Puritans, and Catholics (doc 1). Upon the rise of the colony the Congregational church was also predominately established. In the Chesapeake, social ways were conducted much differently. To start the Chesapeake Area encompassed Virginia, Maryland, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. Life there was about hard work and tobacco farming. Mainly white males (farmers) lived there and owned plantations. A lot of enslaved black men worked on the plantations doing work. There were fewer families in the Chesapeake Bay Colony (doc 3). The two colonies had separate economies that were very different but both successful. The Chesapeake’s economy primarily depended upon Tobacco. Farmers grew it and sold it constantly thus making a living in the society. Alongside side tobacco, save trading went hand in hand. The economy in the south was created under harsh principles of tobacco and Slave trade. (Yes what a life.) In New England the economy was much different and was more invested in different industries than the simple south. Fishing and Whaling were both large dominant businesses.

African American Civil Rights Dbq

...African American Civil Rights DBQ African Americans struggled for equal rights for a long and difficult time. However, in the 1950’s the modern civil rights movement began. There were many ways in which African Americans have been denied equal rights, but the government, individuals, and groups helped deal with the inequalities faced by African Americans. African Americans have been denied equal rights because of segregation and education (doc.1, doc 2, O.I.) Even though the country ruled, “separate, but equal” black and white schools were very different (O.I, doc 1.) African American schools could be very far away from their residence, for instance Linda Brown, who lived in Topeka had to walk 39 blocks to school (O.I, doc 1.) Also, African Americans did not have very good facilities, and were short on supplies compared to nearby white schools (O.I.) This was not the only thing stopping African Americans from reaching equality, Jim Crow laws also played a big part(O.I, doc 4.) Jim Crow laws separated blacks and whites in restaurants, transportation, and schools (O.I.) In addition, African Americans could not drink out of the same water fountain, or use the same restroom as Whites (O.I) The African American facilities were inferior to the white facilities. (O.I.) Without having the same education and with the Jim Crow laws in place, African Americans had trouble becoming equal (O.I.) Since 1950 there have been many methods used to fight against the inequalities faced by......

They also could then help prevent fires like in cities like Chicago. But other then that three other things that helped the industrial boom like the railroads, immigration, and new technology. Some of the thing with the railroads like the miles of railroad they built from 1860 to 1900 it went from about 30,000 to about 190,000 miles (doc 2) of train track so they could move supplies from one side of the country to the other side so farmers could get there stuff to the big market.

Dbq the Olympic Games

...DBQ: The Olympic Games From 1892 to 2002, the Olympic Games were continuous athletic competitions held every four years. Several factors such as gender, ethnicity, and financial support contributed to the establishment of the Olympics. However, based on these sources, the Olympics were primarily built upon the competition between various ethnicities/ countries. The Olympics were not pertained to only one specific location but rather a universal competition. Documents 1,3,4,5 and 6 all show the factor of ethnic differences. In document 1, it talks about the “utopians” in France and allowing their people to join the Olympics, resulting in more peace. Document 3 is about the Nazi’s ability to compete and desire to prove to everyone else that they are better. The tone is very optimistic and confident as the author talks about how the French can “make protests into a fine art” and could overcome any challenge faced. In document 4, a U.S. competitor in the Olympics reflected upon the amount of pressure they had due to competitions with other places, such as Russia. The tone is very determined and aggressive as the author constantly emphasizes their need to “beat” the Russians since they were so powerful. Document 5 is mainly about the Olympics as it took place in Japan and their increased power for world trade as a result of involvement for the competition. Similar to document 4 about the Russians, document 6 talks about Russia’s rise to power and other claims for great......
