    • 1404 Words
    • 6 Pages

    The Desire to Create Spanish Unity Throughout the history of medieval Spain, a myriad of methods of control are employed by the political and religious regimes of the time in order to strengthen the unity of the state. In this paper, I will argue that religious persecution was rooted in the desire to create political and religious unity in Medieval Spain. The origins of religious persecution in the context of Christianity can be traced back to the time of the Visigoths, when the conversion from Arianism to Catholicism takes place.

    the immediate effects of the Muslim Invasion eventually lead to the establishment of La Convivencia, or “The Coexistence.” During this period, Muslims, Jews and Christians all coincided under Muslim rule. This period can further be characterized by relative peace, economic prosperity and political unification under Islamic rule.

    From A.D. 589 to 711, the Muslims conquered the Catholic Kingdom of Visigoths in Spain. The conquest of the Spanish Visigoth kingdom interrupted the fusion of Hispano Roman and Visigoths cultures and altered the emergence of a new catholic civilization. When the Muslims entered this kingdom they wished to have the culture be their own and not have certain aspects of the past still culturally relevant. The culture before the arrival of the Muslims had been largely Romanized, which was a great…

    into fragments, too many pieces to put together to restore the empire. ⇨ The most important reason that caused the fall of Rome was because of barbarian attacks. Rome first started to receive attacks from German barbarians in the north and these barbarians keep on raiding in Roman Territory. Decades after the German barbarians attacked Rome, a powerful group of warriors called the Huns, started to invade the Visigoths, a group of people that lived very close to the borders of Rome.

Even if the mass migration of the wild, Germanic people of the eastern plains is no longer seen as the all-important reason for Rome's demise, it naturally still is seen as one of the capital problems which caused the empire to fall. As a last reason I'd also see the disastrous decision of emperor Valens (who was emperor of Constantinople) to allow the Visigoths to settle in Moesia. The Roman empire's borders to the north had been the river Rhine and the river…

A civilization does not need external forces to cause it to fail. It could have been the result of internal forces. The citizens cause civil unrest. Incompetent politicians can make bad decisions. The settlement of Roanoke failed because the Englishmen were not able to work with…
