Alrighty guys change it up and add some semi true details etc. haha I also feel like maybe if we all use some different fonts they will look a little different? ( 1. Why did Christianity take hold in some places better than others? Christianity took a better hold in places where a major religion was not already dominant. In areas that where already primarily Islamic, Buddhist, Hindu or Jewish it more difficult for Christianity to spread there. 2. In what ways was the missionary message of Christianity shaped by the cultures of Asian and American peoples? The missionary message of Christianity was shaped by Asian culture because Buddhism was the first religion to use missionaries. Christian visitors in Asia may have adopted this practice. In the Americas local religions and practices where present in new Christian converts attitudes and ideas. 3. Compare the process by which Christianity and Islam became world religions. Both Islam and Christianity spread through missionaries. Where as one of the reasons why Christianity initially expanded because of Christians moving out of the way of persecution, although Muhammad and early Muslims faced persecution as well and had to leave Mecca, Islam’s real spreading began after Muhammad returned to Mecca with a much more powerful following and army, a display of force. The religions continued to diverge in their spreading by the fact that Christianity became a very much urban religion while Islam grew to become a mainly rural religion. 4. In what ways did the spread of Christianity, Islam, and modern science give rise to culturally based conflicts? As Christianity, Islam and modern science views spread many cultural conflicts arose, between sciences views of the Big Bang and evolution and religious creation ideas friction was, and is still created between all of these different points of view. Islam, Christian tension goes back many, many years to the Crusades. 5. Based on Chapters 13 through 16, how does the history of Islam in the early modern era challenge a Eurocentric understanding of those centuries? By learning the history of Islam a Eurocentric view of the Middle Ages is challenged because we see how while in Europe learning and education where completely lost, the Muslim world was a source of light. Outstanding leaps in medicine, hospitals, technology, mathematics, architecture, a renaissance in its own right. Instead of hearing more about serf’s measly awful lives our eyes are opened to the splendor of Islam and what it created.
