Europe and the traders The population growth in the 15 th  century led to a rise in demand, which stimulated the growth of the economy (agriculture, crafts and trade). Maritime trade experienced a major boom, especially the Eastern spice routes. This is why this period is known as 'merchant capitalism'. The bourgeoisie became wealthy thanks to commercial businesses and the development of banks. Humanism Humanists discovered the writers of antiquity and promoted a new culture that placed man at the centre of the Universe. They developed the arts and literature and engaged in a new form of science based on reason and experimentation. The printing press revolutionised the way the new humanist ideas were spread by making it possible to print a huge number of books in less time and more cheaply. Religious reform The new humanist mentality was critical of some aspects of the Church , especially the behaviour of some clerics and its wealth. In Germany, Luther proposed a reformation of

Explicamos el gótico a través de sus obras

Una vez que en clase hayamos visto las características generales de la cultura y el arte en la época del gótico, nos vamos a proponer como tarea explicar esas características comentando algunas obras de arquitectura, escultura o pintura de el periodo que estamos estudiando (siglo XII-final de la Edad Media). Repasemos un poco: Desde finales del siglo XII, la mejora de las condiciones económicas y el desarrollo de la vida urbana tuvieron un gran impacto en la cultura del Occidente europeo. A partir de esa época y durante toda la Plena y Baja Edad Media (siglos XII-XV), la cultura estuvo ligada a las ciudades y a un nuevo estilo artístico más complejo que permitió construir grandes edificios y mostrar la pujanza económica y cultural de la vida urbana. En las ciudades, el deseo de profesores y estudiantes de enseñar y aprender más libremente, sin el control de las autoridades religiosas o municipales, dio lugar a la formación de corporaciones independientes de profesores y alumnos llamada

The origin of the first Peninsular Kingdoms (8th-13th centuries)

 How the first kingdoms and counties were formed? During the 8th century, an army of Muslims invaded the Iberian Peninsula. Only two mountanious regions in the north resisted the invasion: Cordillera Cantábrica and Pyrenees. The Christian Kingdoms and counties began the Reconquest of the land occupied by the Muslims. Western focus In Asturias, a group of Hispano-Visigothic nobles and families, led by Pelagius, resisted the Muslims and refused to pay tributes to them (722, battle of Covadonga). This led to the creation of the Kingdom of Asturias , wich after expanding west (Galicia), east (Cantabria) and south, stablished its capital in Oviedo and recovered visigothic laws (IX century). Pyrenean region The counties that formed the Marca Hispanica in the Pyrenees were controlled by the Carolingian Empire. The Frankish emperor chose the nobles (counts and marquis) who ruled the territories. The counties gained independence from Frankish rule and became the counties of Aragón , the Catal

Feudalism

What is feudalism? From the 10 th  and 11 th  centuries onwards, a new political, economic and social system called  feudalism appeared in western Europe. The monarchs, unable to defend and control their kingdoms, granted lands (fiefdoms) to nobles and clergy (feudal lords) to govern on their behalf. In exchange, these lords became their  vassals , pledged allegiance to them and provided them with military assistance. Society was divided into three estates . While the first two estates enjoyed all the privileges (the nobility and clergy), the third (peasants and artisans) had none and paid all the taxes. Feudal Society. Vicens-Vives The feudal monarchy The monarch sat at the top of the feudal pyramid and was considered chosen by God to govern society in his name. The Holy Roman Emperor was regarded by the Pope as the defender of  Christianity and the guardian of its unity. The nobility The nobility's primary social function was to fight. They formed a chivalric order made up of
