Rating: 2, High!

The Encomienda

http://muweb.millersville.edu/~columbus/papers/scott-m.html

Rating: 2, High!

Description: The encomienda system that developed in the New World was very much like the feudal system that existed in Europe. The encomienda itself was a grant of Indians within a geographic region, who were given to an encomendero, the Spaniard who received the grant of Indians. The encomendero was to see to the religious training of these Indians in the Christian faith. Deeply entrenched in the history and culture of South and Central America, the system was one of the most damaging institutions that the Spanish colonists implemented in the New World. The system came to signify the oppression and exploitation of Native Americans. Standards 7.9.6, 7.11.2

Comments: This fairly lengthy, scholarly article by Meredith Scott explains an important element of Spanish colonization that led to mass destruction of American Indian civilization. It includes a bibliography for futher research.

The Garden, the Ark, the Tower, the Temple: Biblical Metaphors of Knowledge in Early Modern Europe

http://www.mhs.ox.ac.uk/gatt/

Rating: 2, High!

Description: This Oxford University site describes how the Biblical stories of the Garden of Eden, Noah's Ark, the Tower of Babel, and the Temple of Solomon were used by early scientists and Reformation leaders as a coherent story of the growth and decline of knowledge in which moral and spiritual factors helped to determine natural and practical outcomes. These stories issued warnings about the necessary difference between human and divine knowledge and suggested ways by which knowledge might be married to piety in order to achieve an improvement in the condition of mankind. Standards 7.9.2, 7.10.3, 7.10.3, 7.11.4, 10.1.1, and 11.1.1

Comments: This is a pretty sophisticated site, but sections can surely be used to explain ideas underlying the changes that took place in early modern Europe that set the stage for democracy and the scientific revolution.
