    Islam is a religion that was influenced by Judaism but had its own ideas/ideals in it. Islam was the fastest growing religion to date.

As a prophet, Muhammad believed his true mission in life was to spread the religion of Islam and its God, Allah. Muhammed soon gained followers and more prophets and Islam was growing rapidly. Islam was the main religion of a massive empire called the Abbasid

    Prince Siddhartha finds Buddhism

    Prince Siddhartha finds Buddhism
    Prince Siddhartha escaped from his palace and saw things that will influence his life forever. He saw a dead man, a poor man, a mother giving birth, and a sick man. This made him realize how cruel the world truly is. He went to the forest and meditated for a longer time than any other man could to reach enlightenment. When he reached the stage of enlightenment, he became the buddha. I picked this because I respect the Buddhist religion and their ideals.

    The Fall of Rome

    The Fall of Rome
    The fall of the roman Empire (following Pax Romana). The roman empire fell because the Roman empire grew too large and was too difficult to control. The citizens were rioting and outside forces/countries were attacking them. Rome truly fell when Ottoman Germans took Byzantine and burned it. Byzantine was a major city of Rome and this just added on to the list of problems with Rome's size. I picked this because the ROman empire was one of the biggest empire and we learned from their mistakes.

    Niccolo Machiavelli

    Niccolo Machiavelli
    Niccolo Machiavelli was a sort of philosopher of his time in the renaissance even though he was much more than that. He was a great and profound thinker. He believed his ideas about rulers were true and the best. "It is better to be feared than loved, if you can't be both" ** His work called "Prince" was highly recommended and had a great influence on some rulers. Machiavelli's book made King Henry VIII take Protestantism's side. I picked him because I thought he was cool and really interesting.
  • Hammurabi *B.C Time*

    Hammurabi *B.C Time*
    Hammurabi was a great ruler of the Babylonian Empire. Hammurabi was able to extend his empire's control over Mesopotamia. Hammurabi was especially famous for his set of laws, Hammurabi's code. These laws were inscribed on stole tablets that stood over eight feet tall and were found in Persia. These set of laws were known for their ruthlessness and unfairness. "If a freeborn man strikes the body of another freeborn man of equal rank, he shall pay one gold mina. If the slave of a freed man str

    and unfairness. "If a freeborn man strikes the body of another freeborn man of equal rank, he shall pay one gold mina. If the slave of a freed man strikes the body of a freed man, his ear shall be cut off"* This shows belief of inferiority and such. It didn't allow any forgiveness such as other rules. Some examples are " If a builder builds a house for someone, and does not construct it properly, and the house which he built falls in and kills its owner, then the builder shall be put to death"

    and " If a son strikes his father, his hands shall be hewn off." Some of these rules were very disgusting, such as pulling out teeth, cutting of breasts, and an eye for an eye. I picked Hammurabi because I would want to go back and see why he thought of his rules like this.
