Students read about the Sack of Constantinople and its effects on the Byzantine Empire at the hands of the Ottoman Empire. They answer 8 questions to get a first hand look at what happened in the city when it was razed and pillaged. This would be great for a sub. The answers are included where appropriate.
Sample questions include:
--Why do you think the Turks even killed the Byzantines that had sought shelter in churches?
--What does “gave no quarter” mean?
--What fears or doubts about Christianity could have resulted from these actions?
--What do you think the Turks gained from these actions?
Consider getting the bundle to save!
