Reflection Questions
  • As you do your readings, make a list of the good things and the bad things that occurred during the 1200–1600 Epoch.

  • How may a surge of faith and of religion contribute to both positive and negative results in society? Give some examples from this epoch.

  • (Reference here is to the secular versus religious perspective.) How do the major characteristics of this epoch lend themselves to divergent interpretations depending upon your point of view? For example, why do we have in this period THE Renaissance, rather than “just one more” renaissance along with those which we have noted previously?

  • How did both the Crusades and the Black Plague make some positive contribution to the development of Western Civilization?

  • What are the steps one would employ in order to complete a Componential Analysis?

  • How does componential analysis relate to Spradley's three types of observation: descriptive, focused, and selective?
