CHAPTER 8

Visigoths Spain

Franks north east

Bugundians between Ostrogoth’s modern Italy and north- Theoretic the ruler excelled himself and then his kingdom mainly from his profound understanding of roman (civil administration) and barbarian (military organization) traditions

Vandal’s south two islands

Byzantine east

Celtic lands comprised of Scots, Pacts, angles, Britons, Saxons, and Jutes last two also to east north of Franks with Danes in north

9th century Europe

Carolingian Empire was Charlemagne’s empire couldn’t use Frankish legal and cultural traditions on all of his subjects, Church was an integral part of Carolingian government, differences in language, laws customs and people, held together by allegiance to him NEW western art

Division of Charlemagne’s empire- not strong Germanic or Slavic but division of kingdoms from quitom to Germany

And finally continental Europe, no specific dateline except after Charlemagne’s empire- beginning of 800

Conflict between monarchs and Families in Europe (States) - Hundred Years War-

No Muslim enemy- complex

Rivalry at heart is set of alliance that bring together, conflict of rights in southern France, land dispute over southern Spain, kings of England wanted north of France, England and Finnish (cloth towns)& French Kings interested in merchants, English side with merchants, French aristocracy do not want English people to come or control, not more than a few hundred people

Ends with French pushing back towards the coast, gunpowder coming into scene, mounted cannon, Joan of Arc Rallying cry, English over extension, English win.

States making wars, wars making states, stronger states out of wars, producing major shifts in stability and government, monarchy suffers more, wars over succession. End of 1400’s England and France survive and everything intact.

Joan becomes Martyr, led with visions

Black Death- Destroys ½ to 1/3 of European population in short period of time, doesn’t disappear till 1800’s- from fleas (microbes) —they blame Jews & east, Muslims and non-Europeans

WORLD WAS GOING TO HELL-living people randomly came together push back ways and traditions of Europe

Giavanio Burcharshio-Decamrion- The decamara- story cycle out of India and middle east- get to end of story and changes direction- 5 guys and 5 girls realize world is coming to end and go to country house bring food and everyday party and tell scandalous entertaining story (adultery, murder, robbery, corruption- underbelly of idealism, secret things- founding of Renaissance (I am human)

Somehow during Black Death there is an artistic response-go crazy or make up truth- European arts dominated by Church (perfect world)

When post plague Europe comes about it is difficult foe Europeans to go back into way of life (peasantry), people act out (God turned back) New shift to world and daily tradition, criticism of Elites & sensibilities

Vernacular- secular or human centered- not separated from Church- power gets reconfigured, out of which church will not have same power

People don't fully know what times they are in-historic self-conscience, drew back from classic, rise in urban and consumer centered lifestyle

Childhood-showed with emotion attention- people marry older and perhaps not if you are poor- has to do with economics and culture- no drama

Ballad culture/romantic

Aesthetics and attention to detail of things that are meaningful to you (House decorations- space in house/feels incomplete if not)- eventually see this in paintings- painting of bowl of fruit-reflects & has depth, creates new vocabulary(desire/ beauty)- shift away from religious stuff- important people showing off- allot of money goes into Religious art- flat

Machiavelli- the Prince- calculating how things really are- links to humanitarian & secular movement- not God it’s going to come down to resources and people

VERY Violent and simultaneously Creative- shift in pursuit-

Starts 2 classes CAPITALISTS and bourgeoisie, cities have states and powerhouses for powerful people (Artists- having portraits made of themselves-pushing boundaries

Mona Lisa- visual symmetry detailed & balanced not common -Expression blurs with Idea- connections with art math science architecture- Multidisciplinary

Review: short answer; historical significance explained

      Hey there foemeno,

      Certainly agree about social history being the most engaging and interesting. Here are a few relevant quotes you may find interesting:-

      "The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight of hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in inequity and born in sin . . . Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them but leave them the power to create money, and, with a flick of a pen, they will create enough money to buy it back again . . . Take this great power away from them, and all great fortunes like mine will disappear, for then this would be a better and happier world to live in. . . . But, if you want to continue to be the slaves of bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let bankers continue to create money and control credit."

      Sir Josiah Stamp, Director of the Bank of England, 1927

      " The hand that gives is above the hand that takes. Money has no motherland; financiers are without patriotism and without decency: their sole object is gain." - Napoleon Bonaparte.( Emperor of the French 1804-1815 ).

      No agenda here - just a few sentences which caught my eye.

      All of this, and more can be found in Edward Gibbons,

      " The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire " published between 1776 and 1788 in six volumes. The abridged version is quite a weighty tome, but not as long-winded as reading the whole lot. Worth a look if you're an ancient history buff.

      Best Wishes,
