Quotes

    Nicolas Palacioshas quoted2 years ago
    The Enlightenment, or Age of Reason, was a cultural and philosophical movement underpinned by a belief in the power of reason
    Nicolas Palacioshas quoted2 years ago
    The drastic population decline brought about by the Black Death also brought huge social and economic changes. A shortage of labour and more available land, particularly in Western Europe, increased the bargaining power of the peasant worker. Uprisings among the peasantry increased and by the sixteenth century, serfdom (a type of bonded labour) had largely disappeared in places like England, although it remained a feature of Eastern Europe and Russia, areas less affected by the Black Death
    Nicolas Palacioshas quoted2 years ago
    Increasing theological and political differences between the Byzantine Eastern Churches and the Western Roman Church led to a final and permanent separation between the two in 1054, a watershed in Church history known as the Great Schism (or East–West Schism).
