spread with countless different bodies coming and going along the routes. 3. Economic changes took over Europe in the wake of the plague. Farms began to decline as the number of farm laborers depreciated, which increased the pay of those who continued with the job. More positively, many cities rebounded and began to thrive and grow through the economic adjustment. Workers who survived the plague were better off in the aftermath, because they received higher pay, especially skilled artisans. However, the urban populations and noble landholders seemed to be worse off in this situation, as the populations were hit severely and the landowners were forced to pay more for both farm labor and finished products. 4. In the late 14th century, English peasants revolted due to talks of a legislation that would supposedly limit their pay, and restrict them from leaving the land of their original masters. Landowners desperately attempting to reverse their misfortune tried to shut the door of opportunities offered to peasants during the crisis, which also likely led them to revolt. 5. The plague benefits were desirable for monarchs because it gave them the opportunity to take advantage of growing. This was beneficial because kings were then able to stabilize their government and economies after the havoc of the plague. Ecclesiastical Breakdown and Revival: The Late Medieval Church 1.

papacy primarily reigned over church and state. However, following the death of Pope Boniface VIII in 1303, emperors, kings, and monarchies all governed more power over religion and politics than the popes did. This led to trouble for the church in later centuries since they no longer had all the power, and were a constant battle with these other groups. 2. Boniface VIII and Philip IV fought because Boniface VIII insisted the papal have more power and authority than the monarchy. To further enforce his wishes, Boniface VIII banned the clergy from paying taxes to the king. As a response, Philip IV halted the exportation of money from France to Rome, so the papacy would not receive any money. Philip IV won the fight, since he was the main cause of the papal decline, and forced Boniface VIII to make his clergy pay taxes in “emergency situations”. This conflict brought upon many dramatic changes for the church, such as the church would become a minority to the increasing power of European secular leaders. Also, this event lead to a decline of the church’s prestige for the first time.

    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.
