Section 3
Two interesting facts about the Great Wall
·
This part is pretty easy just assess any of the following
·
such as facts about its size, length, purposes, varied materials, labor force, and its phases
of construction
·
be pretty specific here, don’t just list a fact, but also assess why you think these facts
are impressive or cool
What was the purpose of the Wall and how successful was it?
·
This part requires a bit of thought. Walls are much more than just physical barriers,
they also mark clearly defining boundaries for cultures and they are also symbolic and
psychological barriers as well. Think about how the ancient Chinese felt when they saw this
Wall as well as how outsiders (particularly the Mongols) felt about seeing this. Did it signify
the superiority of China? Did it mark a clear line between civilized society and barbarians?
” Are backyard fences good examples of modern day privacy walls? Y or N or maybe ? (no need to
explain, just “yes, No or Maybe?)

Section 4
e purpose of the Hajj and two interesting aspects of this event and why interesting to
you?
This part should be pretty easy as there is lots of information on the Hajj, check out any of
these websites for more information (but remember to write everything in your own words):
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/sacredjourneys/content/the-hajj/
http://www.cnn.com/2013/06/21/world/hajj-fast-facts/
http://www.religionfacts.com/hajj
Discuss the relationship between Mohammad and the Dome of the Rock:
Again this is a pretty easy concept to assess, just check out this site for further information:
http://www.sacred-destinations.com/israel/jerusalem-dome-of-the-rock
Sacred Art in the Islamic World:
This is probably the most challenging aspect of the discussion this week, try to assess
1. Why Islamic art is relatively free of visual imagery and assess
2. Why they use primarily calligraphy as a sacred art form and then compare it to Christian art,
which is very visual.
3.. Why don’t mosques have a lot of paintings and sculptures in them like many Christian
churches do?
The Relationship Between Art and Worship: In your own words:
Finally, think about whether or not having lots of visual imagery and music (like many Christian
churches do) or a more plain and quiet area (like many mosques and some other Christian
groups do) is more conducive to worship. There is really no wrong answer here, just think
about it and give me your insights as to why one or the other method you think is preferable.

Section 5
Europe’s Cathedral Architecture”






Key functions of stained glass windows
Well there are two main areas to discuss in this section. Assess how stained
glass provided an opportunity to increase the amount of light within
buildings, especially Gothic style buildings. Another key function of stained
glass was that it gave the church an opportunity. Think about this, how do
you teach lessons on Christianity to a population that was largely
illiterate? Even the mass, which was conducted in Latin, was not a language
most people could understand.
Two structural differences between Romanesque and Gothic cathedrals
Ok, here you can assess the overall design. One structure is very solid, almost
like a fortress, with few windows and thick solid walls. Think about how one
would feel inside such a structure, dark and lit by hundreds of candles. Then
talk about Gothic architecture, stretching higher and higher in the sky, with
lots of windows, light etc. Then think about how people felt sitting inside one
of these structures
I prefer (Gothic or Romanesque) style because
For this section specifically say which style you prefer and then elaborate a bit
as to why
An example of (Romanesque or Gothic) architecture near me is
Ok, this section should be easy, especially for Gothic style buildings. Many
churches in your area, especially Catholic ones are probably Gothic in
style. Public buildings, like a courthouse or library might be more
Romanesque in nature. This would be a great spot to include a picture. You
can certainly use Google to find a picture of a building your local area to add to
your post. So clearly identify the name of the building, the location of it and
which style you think it best represents
