    Correct Answer
    C. The region in the middle east that is thought to be the Holy Land.
    Explanation
    During the Crusades, the main reason for the fighting was the control over the region in the Middle East that is believed to be the Holy Land. The Crusaders, who were primarily European Christians, aimed to regain control of this region, including Jerusalem, from the Muslim forces that had taken over. The Holy Land held great religious significance for Christians, as it was the land where Jesus Christ had lived and died. Therefore, the Crusades were driven by religious motivations and the desire to reclaim this important territory.

    Lords granted land (fiefs) to lower lords and knights for military service

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In the feudal system, lords would grant land, known as fiefs, to lower lords and knights in exchange for their military service. This was a way for the lords to ensure they had a loyal and capable fighting force to protect their land and interests. The lower lords and knights would then become vassals of the higher lords, swearing an oath of loyalty and providing military support when needed. This system of land grants for military service was a fundamental aspect of feudal society.

    The leading trading cities were in Italy and Flanders

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    During the medieval period, Italy and Flanders were indeed the leading trading cities.

Flanders, located in present-day Belgium and the Netherlands, was known for its textile industry and had prosperous trading cities like Bruges and Ghent. These cities were major hubs for international trade, attracting merchants from all over Europe and beyond. Therefore, the statement that the leading trading cities were in Italy and Flanders is true.

    • C.

      Coins

    • D.

      Better crops

    Correct Answer
    C. Coins
    Explanation
    Coins helped revive trade in the Middle Ages because they provided a standardized form of currency that was widely accepted and easily portable. Prior to the use of coins, trade relied on bartering or the exchange of goods and services, which could be cumbersome and inefficient. Coins allowed for a more efficient and convenient means of conducting transactions, stimulating economic activity and facilitating the growth of trade networks. The use of coins also helped to establish trust and confidence in the value of goods and services exchanged, further promoting trade and economic development.

      True

    Explanation
    In Kievan Russia, power was not solely derived from military strength. While military strength did play a role in maintaining power, other factors such as religious authority, economic control, and alliances with neighboring states also contributed to the ruling elite's power. Therefore, the statement that power in Kievan Russia was derived solely from military strength is false.

This decision had significant implications for the region, as it led to the spread and establishment of the Byzantine-influenced Orthodox Church in Russia. This choice also helped to unify the people under a common faith and provided a cultural and religious foundation for the development of Russian society and identity.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False
