The Crusades2 At the end of the night of the Dark Ages a multitude of our ancestors left their homes. They started out on what they called the voyage of God.

"A thing unheard of," said a chronicler of the day, "that such divers people and so many distinguished princes, leaving their splendid possessions, their wives and their children,

The Roman Empire was a strong hold over the Mediterranean for many years The Roman Empire was a strong hold over the Mediterranean for many years. Being the goal of most all world leaders, the Romans wanted land along with their power. They set their eyes on the valuable lands around them and the Mediterranean world as well as parts of Northern Europe and Asia. The Roman civilization and culture was much influenced by the Phonetians and Greeks. Later, the Romans were in control of these lands a
The Romantic period The Romantic Period Romanticism began in the early 19th century and radically changed the way people perceived themselves and the state of nature around them. Unlike Classicism, which stood for order and established the foundation for architecture, literature, painting and music, Romanticism allowed people to get away from the constricted, rational views of life and concentrate on an emotional and sentimental side of humanity. This not only influenced political doctrines and
The Two Faces of Ancient Greece The two most dominating city-states in Greece of their time, Athens and Sparta, were great rivals with two very different ways of life.

TO WHAT EXTENT WAS CHRISTIANITY A UNIFYING INFLUENCE IN THE HISTORY OF EUROPE Europe was a Christian creation, not only in essence but in minute detail The above statement can perhaps best sum up the relationship between Christianity and Europe throughout the ages. Christianity has been the strongest single influence in the history of Europe. Regardless of the century, no discussion would be complete without reference being made, at least in small part, to the Church. It is true that in recen

Treatment of the Jews TREATMENT OF THE JEWS The Nazi slaughter of European Jews during World War II, commonly referred to as the Holocaust, occupies a special place in our history.

It raises doubts about our ability to live together on the same planet with people of other cultures and persuasions. Before it happened, virtually no one thou

western enlight The Enlightenment Torn Apart Based on Rousseaus criticism of Enlightenment ideas, the French Revolution did and did not implement the ways of the Enlightenment. Rousseau sees a number of problems within the thinking of the Enlightenment, preferably when dealing with the arts and sciences. It is for this reason alone that the French Revolution in actuality did not implement the ideas of the Enlightenment. In fact, all of the actions that took place in the French Revolution total

Conic Sections The term conic sections is used when discussing the derivation of a line that is a locus of points equal distance from either a line, a point, both a line and a point, two lines, etc. The term conic sections also can be used when discussing certain planes that are formed when they are intersected with a right circular cone. The planes, or lines as we know them, consist of the circle, the ellipse, the parabola, and the hyperbola. (West, 112) There are different ways to derive each
Dilation Dilation Dilation has been used for millions of years. Even in the ancient times and still we use it until this day. An example of dilation used in ancient times is when ancient Egyptians built the pyramids. The pyramids were built in different sizes, but proportional. Now in this day and time we use dilation in many aspects. Dilation is used in both science and math. In science the microscope shows dilation, without microscopes many of the scientific discoveries wouldn\'t be possible!
Geometry1 Geometry was actually first used in ancient Egypt and Babylon at around 2000 BC in both cases. In order for the Egyptians to build such massive structures as the pyramids they had to have made plans for them prior to the actually building, in these plans geometry had to be used. On ancient Babylonian tablets there is evidence that they understood the Pythagorean theorem. The so-called father of Geometry is Euclid a Greek mathematician. He wrote The Elements, books of postulates and
Stonehenge Stonehenge Medieval Mathematics Math in Medieval times was evident at Stonehenge. Stonehenge and its purpose remains an mystery even now, more than 4,000 years after it was first constructed. It could have been a temple, an astronomical calendar, or guide to the heavens. Despite the fact that we don\'t know its purpose for certain, Stonehenge acts as a prehistoric timepiece, allowing us to theorize what it would have been like during the Neolithic Period, and who could have built thi
The Golden Ratio The Golden Ratio and Our World Leonardo of Pisa, better known as Fibonacci, was born in Pisa, Italy, about 1175 AD. He was known as the greatest mathematician of the middle ages. Completed in 1202, Fibonacci wrote a book titled Liber abaci on how to do arithmetic in the decimal system. Although it was Fibonacci himself that discovered the sequence of numbers, it was French mathematician, Edouard Lucas who gave the actual name of "Fibonacci numbers" to the series of numbers that

Abstract Expressionism Abstract Expressionism "What about the reality of the everyday world and the reality of painting? They are not the same realities. What is this creative thing that you have struggled to get and where did it come from? What reference or value does it have, outside of the painting itself?" Ad Reinhardt, in a group discussion at Studio35, in 1950. My essay starts with the origin and the birth of this great expression in the twentieth century. This movement not only touched p
ancient greek women During the Greek Golden Age, art and philosophy expressed hellenic "weltanschauung", their unique outlook on the world and way of life. Through the works of artists, playwrights, and philosophers, one can see both sides of the conflicted systems of the world, such as; good vs. evil, order vs. chaos, stability vs. flux, relativism vs. absolutism and balance and harmony. The Greeks were materialists. They adopted the philosophical doctrine which says that physical matter is th
ARCHITECTURAL BASICS ARCHITECTURAL BASICS Architecture is unlike the other arts, such as music, poetry, painting and drama, in that it relates to some of the most basic human survival needs in practical ways. You sleep, eat, work and store your necessities inside buildings; you study, play and worship in and around buildings. It is these three basic concerns of human life--shelter, storage, and social activities--that make architecture the "necessary" art. While you can survive without poems or

Batman Research Info 70mm 6-Track / Dolby Batman: (Danny Elfman) This was Elfman\'s breakthrough score, catapulting him into the mainstream scoring business. Many traditionally classical composers may find fault with Elfman\'s dark and uniquely strange score for Batman (or, for that matter, any of Elfman\'s scores), but it doesn\'t change the fact that Batman was one of the highpoints for soundtracks of the 1980\'s. Even without the same training as many of the other top composers of this era,
Catholic Christianity played a major role throughout the Middle Ages in society and politics. The Middle Ages, classified from 600 AD to 1350 AD, was significantly effected by Christianity because of the impact it had on the daily lives of people of the time. The beginning of the Early Middle Ages, after the Fall of Rome in 476 AD and the period known as the Dark Ages, the reorganization of the empire brought a desire for faith and religion, primarily Christianity. This trend of Christian impor

Effects on Trends in Trade Policy The modernizing world of 1850-1870 belonged to an age of remarkable growth in international trade, stimulating the largest free market the world had ever seen. Yet by 1914, only 30 years later, the trend towards liberal trade policies had mostly ended, replaced by a revival of the protectionist system. A study of the variation in trade policies over time shows a remarkable growth in the power of interest groups to influence the institutional rules and regulatio
ERP . Why are SAP implementations so complex? The difficulty in implementing SAP arises from the fact that the success of the implementation project depends on correctly mapping all of the company’s business process into the SAP system. This entails the correct configuration of all the required process right at the beginning or at the initial stages of the project. However, the majority of the risks for ultimate success of the project are also dependent on this initial mapping being completed c
Fabulous Fibonacci FABULOUS FIBONACCI Opening: Fibonacci Numbers in Nature: One of the most common places to see Fibonacci numbers is in the growth patterns of plants. Growth spirals are characterized by both a circular motion, and elongation. As a branch grows, it produces leaves at regular intervals, but not after each complete circle of its spiral. The reason the leaves are not directly above each other is because all of the leaves would not be able to get the necessary elements. It appears
