After learning about the early medieval civilizations- the Byzantines, Islamic society, and the Germanic peoples- (Chapter 7 lecture), answer the following question. Follow the directions carefully in order to receive full credit. 

Chapter 7 Lecture Question:

In this lecture, we saw that religion often served as a good political tool for rulers. How did Byzantine, Islamic, and Germanic rulers combine religion and politics in their approach to governing? 

Directions for Answering the Question:

Using information from the lecture, 
Fully describe 1 example for how Byzantine rulers combined religion and politics.
If you discuss an event like the Iconoclastic Controversy, make sure you fully explain why it happened and what it was in addition to which rulers started it and ended it.
Fully describe 1 example for how Islamic rulers combined religion and politics.’
If you give the example of Muhammad, make sure you explain where he became a political leader (in addition to a religious one) and how this helped him take charge of Mecca and Medina.
Fully describe 1 example for how Germanic rulers combined religion and politics.
If you discuss a specific ruler (like Clovis or Charlemagne) make sure you explain specifically (be descriptive!) how they used religion to further their goals.
If you discuss the political roles of religious leaders, make sure you explain why they were given political responsibilities, in addition to what those political roles were. 
Important Rules for all Lecture Questions:

Only use information from the lecture to answer the question. These questions are intended to check that you watched and understood the lecture. If you use information from an outside source/s, your assignment will receive a zero.
Fully explain your statements and include specific examples from the lecture. 
Explain all information in your own words. Do not quote or copy and paste from the lecture or my powerpoint. Doing so will earn your assignment a zero.
Use good grammar, including complete sentences and correct punctuation. You may use bullet points, but the information you write out beside those bullet points should be complete sentences, not single words or sentence fragments.In my last lecture, I told you that by the fifth century CE, the Roman Empire as it had been
known for the past almost 1000 years fell apart. It had been in decline for a couple centuries
before, and one of the tell-tale signs of this was the growing divide in the Empire between the
East and the West. In this lecture, we’re going to talk about the civilizations that emerged from
the two sides of the former Roman Empire, and we’re also going to discuss another invading
group that came to form a pillar of medieval Europe. More specifically, we’re going to discuss
the Byzantine Empire, the Latin Civilization of Western Europe, and Islamic Civilization, all of
which became big players in the Western World between 500 and 900 CE. These three
civilizations are also important because they form they foundation of modern civilization. It was
during this time period between 500 and 900 that the Western World began to look a little bit
closer to how we see it today.
[SLIDE] We have a few questions to ask about this time period and the three civilizations that
go with it. We’re going ask: 1 What were the primary goals of the Byzantine Emperor Justinian
in the 6th century CE? 2. What was the Iconoclastic Controversy? 3. Why was the spread of
Islam so successful? And 4. How did Charlemagne influence the geography, politics, and culture
of the Franks in Gaul?
[SLIDE] By 450 CE, most of the western provinces of the Roman Empire had fallen to
Barbarian invaders. The Romans held on to Italy for a while longer, but in 476, the Italian
Peninsula also fell to Barbarians. Consequently, most historians designate the year 476 as the end
of the Roman Empire in the West. Only the eastern part remained of the Roman Empire. This
eastern part of the former Roman Empire is colored yellow on the map on your screen. This
reduced form of the Roman Empire was called the Byzantine Empire, or Byzantium.
Interestingly, the residence of the Byzantine Empire still thought of themselves as Roman, as the
heirs of the former glorious empire. They also retained the same imperial government with one
emperor. As we’ll see in this lecture and in the coming lectures, the Byzantine Empire would
continue to change over the centuries, but it would remain in existence until the 1400s.
[SLIDE] One of the most important emperors of the Byzantine Empire was Justinian. Justinian
defied convention in a couple of different ways. First, he was the last emperor to speak Latin as
his native language. In addition, he married a former actress named Theodora. [SLIDE] Here’s
an image of Justinian and Theodora as depicted in a mosaic from the time period. Today, we
tend to think of acting as a pretty respectable profession. But at this time, acting, and particularly
actresses, were connected with prostitution and had less than pristine reputations. Making
Justinian’s choice for a wife even more controversial, Theodora had a very strong personality,
and she wasn’t afraid to vo
