2)      2) As we know, Alexander the Great’s reign was largely military in nature.  Give examples of Alexander’s military exploits.  What were Alexander’s personal strengths?  What were his weaknesses?  Despite his empire falling apart at his death, what legacy did he leave behind?  

3)      3) Discuss Socrates’ methods and his teachings on the psyche.  How did Plato’s own philosophy elaborate on Socrates’ ideas?

4)      4) What long-term and short-term problems did Julius Caesar face as dictator?  What solutions did he use to attempt to solve these problems? 

5)      5) Why, despite a growing and prospering land empire, was the Roman Republic so unstable in the last century of its existence?  Explain with regard to the Land Crisis, the Social War, the revolt of Spartacus, and the timocratic nature of the Republic’s elected officials at this time.




  1. Choose ONE of the following:


1)   You are a young noble boy who will be trained to be a badass knight (woo-hoo, you rock!).  Describe the training you are first supposed to go through before becoming a knight.  How are you then made a knight?  How does the Church keep you from kicking everyone’s posterior?  In the absence of war, what might you do to hone your combat skills? (three point bonus if you can come up with a cool knight’s name for yourself!)

2) Discuss some of the problems the Papacy faced in the ninth and tenth centuries after the fall of the Carolingians.  How was the Papacy able to make itself more powerful after this period of crisis, and how did these efforts to strengthen itself bring it into conflict with secular monarchs?

3) Describe the organization of the Abbasid Caliphate in terms of its government as well as its presence in everyday Islamic society.  How, despite the initial successes of the Caliphate in the 700s, did it decline to the point of being merely a figurehead of the Seljuk Turk sultans in the 1100s?

4) Discuss how the English Kings from William the Conqueror to Henry II were able to centralize the rule of their realm.  What were some of the larger successes of their reigns?  How, despite their efforts, were these efforts to strengthen centralized rule cancelled out by King John?


Two and three are essay questions and As you can see, in order to properly answer an essay question and get full credit, you’ll need to write more than just a couple of paragraphs.  Rather, you’ll need to argue themore general overall points, using specific historical examples to back these points up.
