    The Protestant and Catholic Reformation
    Martin Luther began to critique the Roman Catholic Church around the time he had his first Anfectungen. In German, Anfectungen meant “a trial”. It further means the struggle a Christian felt when they sensed the abandonment of God. It also could mean a trial that was sent from God, or a temptation from the Devil to destroy one’s faith.

    Martin Luther began to argue with the indulgence sellers, once he became an evangelical. The confrontations would soon lead to only the beginning of the Protestant Reformation. Indulgences were documents approved from the Catholic Church, which were sold to the public. The indulgences were used to reduce their time from purgatory. It has been stated in The Reformation Era, “It proved to be a lucrative source of income. Unfortunately, by the sixteenth century, the income was all that mattered.” (Linder 22).
    Martin Luther opposed the selling of indulgences. He wrote his criticism against the indulgences and the Catholic Church, which became known as the Ninety-Five Theses in 1517. He gave the Ninety-Five Theses to Wittenberg church. The Ninety-Five Theses were then translated into German and was spread out amongGermany. This had started the Protestant Reformation.

    The result of the Protestant Reformation was it started a series of religious wars. InFrance, there were fights between the Calvinist and Catholics. They ended the fighting through the edict ofNantesin 1598. In 1618, the thirty years war began inGermany. This was a war between the Protestants and theHoly Roman Empire. The war ended in 1648 due to the signing of the Treaty of Westphalia. There were also religion issues in the English Civil war that went on in the 1640’s.
    While all this was going on the Catholic Church began the Council of Trent in 1545 and lasted for about 18 years. This was considered the Catholic Reformation. The goal for the Council of Trent was to “try to define a common ground of belief and practice for all Christians, and attempt to heal the schism”, according to Le Poulet Gauche. The council tried to discuss the corruption of the church, the attacks being made on the church, and involved clergy. There was hardly any progression or achievement from trying to change the viewpoints of the Protestants. In the end the Council of Trent didn’t heal anything.

    Another person to influence the Protestant Reformation was John Calvin. He wrote Institutes of the Christian Religion in 1536. He wrote this to explain the new theology. In 1541, John Calvin also wrote Ecclesiastical Ordinances. Ecclesiastical Ordinances brought up the church government. He believed that there should be equality within the head ministry of the church rather than having the Episcopal hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church. Calvinism was created after Institutes of the Christian Religion was written. According to WashingtonStateUniversity,
    “Calvinism is a system of theological thought found in the doctrinal expressions of the Reformed and Presbyterian churches, from Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion.” The people who supported Calvin became known as the Presbyterians.

    After the Mughal Empire fell, only the British and French empires were left to take presence in India. Afterwards, British had managed to demote Frances’ presence to commercial presence alone. Over time, India had gradually came under Britain's political and commercial dominance, establishing three major cities known as Calcutta, Bombay, and Madras, these cities became major trading and manufacturing places not to mention The East India Company’s developments. During the nineteenth century, India was a large producer of manufactured goods and raw materials. Not before long did it become the British empire's largest colonized population. While at first, the British tried to focus on converting the Indian people to Christianity and establishing European social mores, Europeans soon had to adopt indigenous culture like style of dress, housing, and political symbols. But as the British became more like the Indian people so too did the Indian become more Westernized, not only did they learn english they became more literate, better educated, but they completely moved aside the transcendence of life to the development and transformation of it before the transcendence.
    Because most Europeans in the army were men, they married and lived with indigenous women. The British peoples also kept the Indian culture “at arms length.” Military bases were made so soldiers would remain in the walls of the bases rather than among the Indian peoples.
    The sepoy mutiny or Indian revolution in 1857, sepoys of the British East India Company’s military revolted and started a mutiny. This led to other mutinies and revolts in mostly central India. These revolutions posed a considerable threat to the British East Asia Company until it was ended with the fall of Gwalior. Later because Sepoy Mutiny failed, after the defeat many of the remaining troops were scattered and hunted down by the British.
    Although the British remained in power for only 90 years they left a bigger impact on the people of India than the presence of the long ruling muslims, not only did the British help the development in economic power of India but their social structure as well.

    “The profound hypocrisy and inherent barbarism of bourgeois civilization lies unveiled before our eyes, turning from its home, where it assumes respectable forms, to the colonies, where it goes naked. Did they not, in India, to borrow an expression of that great robber, Lord Clive himself, resort to atrocious extortion, when simple corruption could not keep pace with their rapacity? While they prated in Europe about the inviolable sanctity of the national debt, did they not confiscate in India the dividends of the rajahs, who had invested their private savings in the Company's own funds? While they combated the French revolution under the pretext of defending "our holy religion," did they not forbid, at the same time, Christianity to be propagated in India, and did they not, in order to make money out of the pilgrims streaming to the temples of Orissa and Bengal, take up the trade in the murder and prostitution perpetrated in the temple of the Juggernaut? These are the men of "Property, Order, Family, and Religion." ”

    Latin American Revolts and Independence Movements
    Ashley Musselman, Mindy Dinh, Lesly Rueda
    The Latin American revolts were a bloody battle that later led to independence. Many of these revolts were scattered throughout Mexico and Brazil. From events that abolished slavery, to Napoleon’s plan to expand; Latin America changed dramatically throughout 1750-1914.
    During the 19th century, when Brazil noticed they were hardly getting any attention from Portugal, who was dominating them at the time, they suddenly felt deeply neglected. Their economy was weak, most of the population happened to be slaves, and merchants longed for trade. They decided the only way to get attention was to start an uprising, little did they know that they’ll be getting plenty of attention in the nearby future.
    By 1807, Napoleon Bonaparte invaded Lisbon, Portugal. Prince Regent Dom Joao knew that they had to move their monarchy to a whole new location if they didn’t want to be overthrown. A decision was made and the royal family fled to Brazil and the Portuguese Empire was officially settled there.
    The Prince saw how bad Brazil’s economy became during his rule so he promised improvements and decided to turn it into a cosmopolitan city. Soon many Brazilians realized that Portugal has been relying on Brazilian exports and tax to keep their nation powerful. They decided that they don’t need Portugal and shouldn’t feel inferior towards them. Then and there, they agreed something must be done to serve Brazilian’s independence.
    After Napoleon’s concluding battle, most Brazilians believed their days under Portugal’s rule were over. But the Prince liked his life in Brazil and feared that if he left, Brazilians will claim their nation to be independent. He realizes that the government in Lisbon, Portugal will be angry due to his years of absence and he didn’t want to lose power in Portugal or Brazil. He then took off to Portugal but left his son, Dom Pedro, in charge. He said that if Brazil were to ever be an independent nation then Pedro will have to lead it.
    After Prince Regent Dom Jao left, both nations went back to their old ways, Brazilians were furious and did not want to be living in a country where they lacked attention and was constantly bossed around.
    A scientist names Jose Bonifacio de Andrada e Silva convinced young Pedro to look into the concept of a democratic rule for Brazil. Pedro was also tired of being bossed around by Lisbon so he took his father’s advice and decided to declare himself king of the new nation.
    The event of Brazils independence was all thanks to Jose Bonifacio and Dom Pedro.
    Mexico’s independence was a bloody battle. The early 19 century was the beginning of napoleons revolts in Spanish America. Luckily, Miguel Hidalgo y Castilla, otherwise known as ‘The Father of Mexican Independence’, began the Mexican rebellion.
    Simon Bolivar was a supreme American hero of the struggle for independence in Mexico. Bolivar Is known for his victories across Latin America. He won the victory over the Spaniards, and gained independence for Venezuela, Peru, Columbia, Panama, and Bolivia. He is known as “El Liberator”.
    Throughout 1750-1914 Latin America made history. Some good, some tragic. In the end, Brazil and Mexico won independence and gained the ability to expand.

    How it started
    The Indian ocean trade began around 1450. It became a major trade route when global trade boomed in mid 15th century. The reason trade was so popular there is because that ocean connected the west and the east of Eurasia. Trade in the Indian ocean began with several factors. The first of which is the collapse of the Mongol empire on the continent. When the empire had collapsed trade routes opened up all over the world. The second reason is the decrease demand for luxury products such as jewels, textiles and precious metals. Another reason is the construction of larger ships. When the ships that carried cargo were larger, there was more room for goods to be transported. The innovation of ships also contributed because of faster, sleeker ship designs. The main factor of the movement of merchants was the trade winds. During the southwest monsoon season, goods were trade from Asia to Africa and Europe. During the northeast monsoon season trade went from Europe and Africa to Asia.

    What they traded
    Effects
    After the Europeans invaded the trade in the Indian Ocean, they left their mark on its inhabitants and how it was run. The Europeans introduced organized sea warfare before adapting to the previous way it was run. The spread of Christianity had very little success because of the Muslim and Confucius influence already present. Missionaries did find some success with members of the lowest caste in India and were able to convert most of the Philippines. The Europeans didn't leave very many lasting effects on the people they traded with. The Asian civilizations took some of the technology that the Europeans used. They used new sails, compasses, and new designs for ships. The British did, however, leave their affect on India. India was a colony until 1947.
