Product Description
This is a bundle of 4 highly animated, power point presentation on the Early, High & Late Middle Ages and The Crusades. I have combined the Early, High & Late Middle Ages into one that can be used as one, two or three separate presentations. The total number of slides in the presentations is 84. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides if you need to.

The Early Middle Ages or Early Medieval Period was the period of European history lasting from the 5th century to the 10th century. The Early Middle Ages followed the decline of the Western Roman Empire and preceded the High Middle Ages.

The period saw a continuation of trends begun during late classical antiquity, including population decline, especially in urban centers, a decline of trade, and increased immigration. The period has been labeled the "Dark Ages," a characterization highlighting the relative scarcity of literary and cultural output from this time, especially in Northwestern Europe.

During the 11th century, feudal life began to change. Agricultural innovations such as the heavy plow and three-field crop rotation made farming more efficient and productive. Thanks to the expanded and improved food supply, the population grew. As a result, more and more people were drawn to towns and cities.

Meanwhile, the Crusades had expanded trade routes to the East and given Europeans a taste for imported goods such as wine, olive oil and luxurious textiles. As the commercial economy developed, port cities thrived.

By 1300, there were some 15 cities in Europe with a population of more than 50,000. In these cities, a new era was born: The Renaissance.

The Eastern Roman Empire, or Byzantine Empire, continued to survive, and in the 7th century the Islamic caliphates conquered swaths of formerly Roman territory.

Power Point #2, The High Middle Ages contains 12 slides and covers the following:

The High Medieval Era is the period of time that seems to typify the Middle Ages best. Usually beginning with the 11th century, to 1300. This period saw such significant events as Norman conquests in Britain and Sicily, the earlier Crusades, the Investiture Controversy, and the signing of the Magna Carta.

The church became the universal and unifying institution. Strong popes, notably Gregory VII, worked for a reinvigorated Europe guided by a centralized church. By the end of the 11th century, nearly every corner of Europe had become Christianized (with the notable exception of much of Spain), and the Papacy, long established as a political force, was in constant struggle with some secular governments and alliance with others.

Power Point #3, The Late Middle Ages contains 23 slides and covers the following:

The end of the Middle Ages can be characterized as a transformation from the medieval world to the early modern one. The time period was 1300-1650. The Great Famine occurred during 1315 to 1317 followed by the Black Death, severely reducing population of Europe.

Religious unity was jolted by the differences between Western and Eastern Church.
The period saw a rise in social unrest, serfs’ uprising, the Peasants’ Revolt. European powers also suffered the Hundred Years’ War between England and France. Western Schism decreased the influence of Catholic Church.

Power point presentation #4 is entitled, The Crusades and contains 25 slides and covers the following:

The first of the Crusades began in 1095, when armies of Christians from Western Europe responded to Pope Urban II’s plea to go to war against Muslim forces in the Holy Land. Considered at the time to be divinely sanctioned, these campaigns, involving often ruthless battles. At their core was a desire for access to shrines associated with the life and ministry of Jesus, above all the Holy Sepulcher, the church in Jerusalem said to contain the tomb of Chris.

Absolution from sin and eternal glory were promised to the Crusaders, who also hoped to gain land and wealth in the East. Pope Urban’s plea met with a tremendous response, both among lower levels of the military as well as ordinary citizens; it was determined that those who joined the armed pilgrimage would wear a cross as a symbol of the Church.

The crusades lasted for 200 years until support for such efforts disappeared in the 16th century, with the rise of the Reformation and the corresponding decline of papal authority.
