(Readings not discussed in Section or Review) I. Here’s a reminder of course themes to keep in mind when you’re going over the readings and your lecture notes. Some of you have asked for a way to “put it all together” the way to do that is by theme. Look at your readings, lecture notes, section notes and emails from your TA and see try to study in terms of theme: how many themes can you apply or connect to the person, place, event, etc.? Good Luck Everyone! A) Trade . Ex: 1 connects East Asia and West Asia and Europe. B) Cultural interaction / influence of culture . Ex: Greek on Romans, Jews, Muslim and Slavic Worlds; Persian culture on the Arabs; China on East Asia. C) Religion and the State . 1. Why did states adopt religious policies? 2. How does it serve the state? 3. Does this relationship create unity? Disunity? D) Tension / conflict . Ex: tensions between new faith and old tradition. E) The Settled and the Nomad . 1. Consider the relationship between the settled and the nomad. F) Expansion . G) Religion and division . II. Exam Reminders A) Bring a BLUEBOOK B) Write ONLY in PEN C) Write in complete sentences, NO BULLETS ! D) Century reminder : when you’re talking about an event that happened in 37 CE you refer to that as the 1 st century. Always think one ahead than the actual number. Ex: 250 CE = 3 rd century; 560 CE = 6 th century. 1190 CE = 12 th century. III. Readings from April 17: Religion and Empire (200-400) A) St. Augustine of Hippo, The Just War / CD Source. This is a short reading; note particularly the use of scripture to justify state war and even persecution. Here are some important passages to take a specific look at. Remember at this time, the Christian church was on the rise—Christianity was not the religion of wealth, status and power. Paragraph Heading 2 : “About the war in which king Radagais of the Goths, A worshipper of Demons, was defeated with his huge army in a single day” (165). Paragraph Heading : “The Harsh Brutality in the Sack of Rome Corresponded with Established Customs of War, whereas the Mercy Shown Revealed the Power of Christ’s Name” (165). “And so we see that miserable people [lacking faith and godliness]…in the very fact that they justly deserve their misery are confined to a condition of misery by the principle of order. This keeps them from being united with saved people” (166) —Think difference, where have we seen this “us versus them” mentality before ? Very Important! “Whether War is always Evil or May Sometimes be Just” (166). Theme : Religion and the state! 1 Ex: example. 2 Paragraph Heading = read the whole thing. 1
