Western Civ 1 Lesson 70: Answering 2 of the following questions

What kinds of contributions did the monks make to European society?

The major thing I should mention is the fact that the monks were able to stabilize the civilization whenever the agriculture was dying out. The monks taught the locals how to make certain things. They taught them the things they know of. Slowly but surely the population increased due to the monks helping out. After that, the monks contributed to technology and sold things to support themselves and the monastery.

What was the attitude of most Christian writers toward the philosophers of ancient Greece?

Some of the Christian writers would reflect on the ancient Greece, because the greeks were diligent people and they worked hard for whatever it was they strived for. They respected people like Socrates and Plato for they had good written work. Those two famous philosophers wouldn’t have been greatly acknowledged today, if it wasn’t for their passion to strive for answers. They dedicated all their life to seek answers to big philosophical questions. That’s why the attitude that most Christian writers gave, was a positive one, due to greeks being intelligent and diligent workers.

Thanks for stopping by and reading this essay, I hope you enjoyed reading on my thoughts towards these 2 questions. I’ll be posting more soon and have a great rest of your day.
