Quote: “The person who says something is impossible should not interrupt the person who is doing it.” – Chinese proverb

Agenda:
1. DO NOW:  Comparison in Land-Based Empires: Compare the methods by which various empires increased their influence from 1450 to 1750.

2. Video w/question & discussion: HEIMLER: Empires Use - BELIEF SYSTEMS
Heimler talks all about religion in the land-based empires from 1450-1750. Religion was a significant means by which rulers of land-based empires consolidated and legitimized their power.

Sometimes religion was a great unifier as in the case of Akbar of the Mughal Empire. Other times it was a fractious reality as in the case of Christianity and Islam.

In the Christian church it was Martin Luther who began to complain about the abuses of the Roman Catholic Church, specifically the practices of simony and the sale of indulgences. His complaints led to the Protestant Reformation and a permanent split of the Christian Church.

The Muslims also had some turmoil during this period. The Safavids and the Ottomans were both Muslims but not the same kind. The Ottomans were Sunni and the Safavids were Shi’a and this led to much discord among the neighboring empires.
