After becoming a Christian, Patrick felt called to return to Ireland and spread the message of Christianity.

    During the Dark Ages the Church is stronger where

    • A.

      East

    • B.

      North

    • C.

      West

    • D.

      South

    Correct Answer
    C. West
    Explanation
    During the Dark Ages, the Church was stronger in the West. This is because the Western part of Europe, specifically the Roman Catholic Church, held significant power and influence during this time. The Pope, based in Rome, had authority over the Western Christian world and played a central role in political and religious affairs. The Church controlled vast amounts of land and wealth, and its teachings and practices were deeply ingrained in the daily lives of people in Western Europe. In contrast, the Eastern part of Europe, known as the Byzantine Empire, had its own separate Christian church and was not under the direct control of the Pope.

    During the Dark Ages the church is weaker where

    • A.

      North

    • B.

      East

    • C.

      South

    • D.

      West

    Correct Answer
    B. East
    Explanation
    During the Dark Ages, the church was weaker in the East. This could be attributed to various factors such as the rise of Islam in the Middle East, which led to conflicts and power struggles between different religious groups. Additionally, the Eastern Orthodox Church, which had a significant presence in the East, had its own power struggles and divisions that weakened its overall influence. Furthermore, the East was also more susceptible to invasions and attacks from various external forces, which further weakened the church's authority and control in the region.

    • C.

      Patriarchs and Popes

    • D.

      Emperors and Bishops

    Correct Answer
    D. Emperors and Bishops
    Explanation
    During the Dark Ages, feuds most generally took place in the relationships between Emperors and Bishops. This is because during this time period, there was a power struggle between secular rulers (such as emperors) and religious leaders (such as bishops) for control and influence. The emperors wanted to assert their authority over the church, while the bishops sought to maintain their independence and power. This often led to conflicts and feuds between the two parties as they fought for supremacy and control over territories and resources.

    • A.

      Heretics

    • B.

      Jews

    • C.

      Christians

    • D.

      Muslims

    Correct Answer
    B. Jews
    Explanation
    During Justinian's rule, Jews were required to loan money because they were prohibited from owning land. This was a common practice in many medieval societies where Jews were often excluded from land ownership and restricted to occupations such as money lending. These restrictions were often fueled by religious prejudices and stereotypes, leading to the perception that Jews were more suited for financial activities rather than land ownership.

    Rate this question:

  • 20.

    • A.

      Jews

    • D.

    Correct Answer
    C. Christians
    Explanation
    During Justinian's rule, the major landowners were Christians. This can be inferred from the fact that Justinian was a Christian emperor who sought to strengthen the influence of Christianity in the Byzantine Empire. He implemented laws and policies that favored Christians, including the construction of numerous churches and the suppression of other religious groups such as Jews, heretics, and Muslims. Therefore, it can be concluded that Christians held significant power and ownership of land during Justinian's rule.

This concept suggests that the punishment should mirror the offense committed, ensuring fairness and balance in the legal system.
