By AJ Theisen 1A Mikulas
Catholic Church Unifying Europe Politically & Socially Post Fall of Rome:
Contributions to Medieval Era in Europe:
The Plague: The Plague really affected trade & lives of all the people in Europe as so many died from it. Trade was huge throughout Europe & with this trade helped the plague spread very quickly & made a mass grave throughout Europe and its trade routes.
The Great Schism: Pope Urban was risen up from the Great Schism after Gregory XI died. Cardinals were forced to elect a new Italian pope, which would be Pope Urban VI.
The Hundreds of years of War: Monarchies and aristocracies believed that war was pure politics. Off of this, many wars came about as it was a chain reaction to other wars that aren't even related to the original reason for the start of the wars. Like the war between France & England which included more of Western Europe at times and went on for a long time with no real resolution to be within reach.
