Justin Smith Harman Ch. 2 1. In Europe, the political changes that accompanied Spanish conquests into the New World were the changes to “new monarchies” and “absolutionisms,” which changed from the old feudal order. They were now states which rested on feudalism but in which the monarchs had learned to use new forces connected with the market system and the growth of the towns as a counterbalance to the power of the feudal lords. 2. “New monarchies” and “absolutionisms,” which changed from the old feudal order. They were now states which rested on feudalism but in which the monarchs had learned to use new forces connected with the market system and the growth of the towns as a counterbalance to the power of the feudal lords. 3. When Harman says that the culture promoted by the merchants and bankers of the Renaissance reflected their contradictory position, he means that those who flaunted wealth like merchants at the time arrived at wealth by non-feudal means, and used power to secure positions within the framework through feudalism.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
