We should study history to recognize God's providence. Some people just see history as "that was bad, that was good", but if you look at it through the lens of the Bible then you see God's providence even through bad things.

Also to see that God's word is true. We have an understanding of human nature that people that don't have the Bible don't have. We aren't shocked at all the wars because we know humans are depraved and need a savior (Karl Marx "didn't accept that view", rejected God + Scripture, viewed history through the lens of communism)

Also the Bible tells us to remember the past (Job 8:8-10)

It is important in fulfilling the great commision, since we can understand times past/different cultures and where we fit in (working out of Chrisitanity)

We learn from the past (William Shirer "those who do not remember the past are condemmed to relive it"), because we are humans and sinful that means we might interpret it wrongly and repeat the past, but this will help us know why and to help us not repeat it.


Studying history helps us be better Chrisitans because:
- it takes the focus off ourselves, since we aren't limited to our own lifespan and the very recent past
- it heightens our ability to show empathy and compassion to others, especially people who grew up in a different culture, with different expectations etc.
- we can put our lives in perspective (not exaggerating our own sufferings by seeing what other people went through)
- we can be healthily skeptical of any political promises (to "fix" human sin problems, for instance) since we can know that doesn't really work, long-term (almost every "fix" you can think of has been tried and has failed)
- it will help us not get caught up in current events, because no matter how big old things were, they didn't last forver, so neither will these things nowdays


We study Western history because it was the history of Christianity and it's development. Western ideas that caused major events largely spring from a Chrisitan worldview (even if the events themselves aren't Christian)
Christianity benefitted the western world by:
- It emphasized reason and logic, rather than "mysticism" and the unpredictable gods of other religions (God is always the same)
- Christianity has an emphasis on the future rather than the past (although it definitely talks about the past too), but it didn't just copy the past. As Christianity developed there was a progressive understanding of the Bible.
- There is an assumption of progress. For us, there is a beginning and an end, so we're not going round and round, or being reincarnated, or anything like that that other religions and worldviews think (and we have the Bible to tell where things began and how they will end). We are optimistic in the future, which can inspire creativity and things like that (although optimism can be preverted into utopia)
- It has an emphasis on the indivdual and on individual freedom (most cultures emphasize the group as being most important), which came out of Christianity. Sin, salvation, and a relationship with God are all personal things. It's not "fate, and you stay in the position where you were when you were born". That is why western culture never had a caste system. We believe in human rights and freedom because we were all made in God's image. Before this there were no substansial political revolutions in the world (overthrow of government by the governed), it's because of an emphasis on human freedom, that we ALL have rights not just the upper class.



400-1000AD - early middle ages. Roman empire is gone (western part), europe is being overrun by barbarians rather than being ruled by the RE
1000-1500 "High Middle Ages" or Medieval time period (the dark ages but it's not called that anymore)
1550-1815 - Early modern period. Had the french revolution, Napolean, and his defeat ended this era
1815-present - the modern period
the 20th centruy events lasted from 1914 until 1989 or 1991 (fall of the Soviet Union)

In 1550 someone lived similarly to ancient times, much more so than nowdays (no machinery, power, etc)

Social changes - there was the feudal system, co you coudl be a serf (land slave), free peasants, church person (attached to or dependent on the church), town dweller, or landed nobility, but you couldn't really move up from your position. This all changed, when there started to be social mobility, where you could move up or down in ranks and improve your situation, and you could gain wealth (which went from being based on land to being based on moveable assets like cash).

Political changes - there were unified nation-states (instead of being a "german", you were a local one or a "chrisitan", the Holy Roman Empire was divided into 300 nationalities). There was a government, so it was "universal sufferege", which means at a certain age EVERYONE could vote, even if you were poor

Economic changes - the royalty controlled things, they would have a monopoly on anything profitable, but it changed to capitalism where people privately own things

Intellectual changes - the rise of humanism (thinking for and finding truth for oneself), that now exists everywhere in society where it didn't use to (humans can "look inside" for truth)

Religious changes - the Church was very powerful in society, but it was taken out of the powerful position (disestablishment) that it had, by the 20th century. The state didn't support it or rely on it (not universal, there are a few exceptions) The Church doesn't have the same influence.

Wow

I will try not to take this personal


Not intended to be personal, but my original suspicions plus your reaction were enough that I wanted to shoot you. You're a more experienced player than me, but my understanding was that that's part of the game. If there's a better way, then I would gladly learn it.

Louis the XIV - personal reign is when they actualy rule
He was the "sun King "absolutist monarch, everything that CR did helped him. The sun because that's what he chose because it shines and he was the thing everyone revolved around because e was absolutist. Important bc he ruled 54 years when most people at that time didn't rule that long. He ruled alone - had a prime minister ruling for him when he was young but when the pm died he ruled by himself. He kept the nobility under his thumb. He owned the tools of absolutism: the power to tax and tax heavily, an elaborite civil service/bueracracy, the people taht enforced it. Also had an alliance witht he catholic church, at the expense of hte french hugenots/protestants - Edict of naunt he made to say you had to be catholic to be a citizen, protestants had to leave, convert, or face persecution. He also had a "royal mystique" i.e. he built his image to be an absolute monarch and grand monarch. Artwork, images, architecture. He had the "state portrait" - commisioned over 300 portraits of himself, sometimes with others. He had the official/royal media, as in, imiages of himself that could be printed or reproduced, like medals, engravings. he only gave them snippets of information. They found out only his sucessful projects. He did architecture, the palace of versailles. constructed it from 1667 to 1686, was not finished in his lifetime. started off as a hunting chateu. Destroyed the village of versailles to build his palace. He required the nobility to reside there so he could watch them, even would personally go through their mail. He charged them tons of rent but forced them to live there. His bedroom was the center of the palace, when he got up everyone could get up, when he went to bed they had to too.
You could enter through the gate in different ways based on your status. There were balls and banquets, and you sat closer based on how close you were to him in relations.
The palace has the hall of mirrors, important things were signed in it. In the front of his private chapel on the altar were his initials. The paintings on the ceilings and statues were from greek mithology but with his face in it.
There was the pool of latona, when people rebelled at her, they turned into frogs, so that was a reminder not to rebel. Also the enceladus fountan who rebelled and was killed by an avalance of rocks. He had a very precise landscape because he was even in control of that.


The English rejected absolutism, did not have kings after the English civil war.

War was caused by a crisis of confidence in the monarchy. Elizabeth tried to get to know her subjects, was popular with her subjects. Died without an heir, was the last of the tudors, and then was the Stuarts reign. James 1 and Charles 1 were foreigners, upstarts from scotland, didn't try to be popular with his subjects, so they didn't like them.
Thre was a changinc economic landscape and a decline of the old nobility, capitalism was on the rise, and cash was being more important than land, so land costed a lot. Nobility kept doing the old things like huge estates, but it was costly. There were "the rich" who weren't nobility but they had more money, this class undermined the old nobility. The government would "sell nobility titles" which the old nobility hated. The rich started demanding political power too. The three religious groups were catholics, the Church of England, and the non-conformists like puritans. When James and Charles they were presbeteryan, people wanted them to aid the puritans, but they ended up satisfying no one. Kings were known as the royalists, the parliment members started to be knon as the roundheads because of their haircuts. Fought each other, Roudhead won, Charles 1 was beheaded. When the king tried to be too lofty and bring in toops to invade his own country the people rebelled. Oliver Cromwell came because there was no king, was known as the lord protector of England, he was puritan, so theaters and playacting were bad, no buisnesses could be open on sundays, tried to impliment modest, high collar, dull color, sober clothes. Wasn't able to maintain his father's rule. Had very high ideals and morality but he had a hard time showing grace and dealing with average people. in the restoration of 1660 a monarch was restored to the crown, Charles the 2nd, Ch 1's son. He was a strong catholic, was recieved intot eh catholic church on his deathbed. James the 2nd was known to be a catholic and parliment didn't like it, but he was an old man so they didn't think he'd live long, and his heirs were two grown daughters who were protestants. But he took a younger wife who had a son, so parliment decided they couldn't put up with it. They removed him from the throne with no bloodshed, brought his daughter who was ruling elsewhere to rule "the glorious revolution of 1688", james 2 and family left and didn't come back. To reign, parliment said they had to sign the bill of rights that limited their power, and they agreed. It laid out the claims that parliment wanted from previous rulers. The members of parliment had free speech. It also said the king coudl not levy taxes without parliment's permission. The king could also not have a large-standing army, because in peace he would only use it to oppress his own people. It kept the king from interfering in parlimentary elections, it guarenteed the right to trial by jury, and it said no catholic or anyone married to a catholic could serve on the English throne. And it said that parliment had to meet on a regular and frequent basis.

The overall results of the glorious revolution - it asserted the authority of Parliament over the king, it reaffirmed the Anglican Church, England rose to first class power status (they were the most powerful country of the time period, esp. because of the navy), and the British constitutional monarcy became a model for reformers all over the world (it is NOT an absolutist monarch). Louis the XIV would never have signed this constitution + bill of rights.
