Simplicity of Oral Communication Affecting the Depth of Understanding

No later than the fourth day of the academic week, please respond to this thread by writing a thorough and thoughtful 300-word essay that answers one of the following question sets:

  1. How did the printing press transform human knowledge? How do you see the necessary simplicity of oral communication affecting the depth of understanding that people had about the news, so to speak? How would the fact that most information about the world, most news, came from the pulpit affect the transmission of this information to villagers and townspeople? How did the printing press change this?
  2. Discuss the concept of Renaissance Artist-Scientist. Explain the several Renaissance concepts of perspective. What are these artist-scientists attempting to accomplish? Discuss the works of Masaccio and Leonardo da Vinci among others.
  3. Compare the Medieval World Map, circa 1264, with Ptolemy’s 2nd-century map, which can be found in the Atlases link in this week’s readings, or below in a clearer version. In the version below, we have a Renaissance-era replica of Ptolemy’s map, which had been rediscovered in the late 13th century. Even though Ptolemy’s map was more than a thousand years older than the Medieval World Map, it looks much more like maps we would use today. You do not have to answer all of these questions. Simply use them to shape your comparison: What does Ptolemy’s map allow that the medieval map does not? Why was the discovery of Ptolemy’s map so important? How did it change the way people saw the universe? From what the two maps emphasize, what appears to be important in Ptolemy’s world of 2nd century Greece, as compared to what appears to be important in medieval Europe?

Your Initial Post is expected to be a 300-word prose essay, with a thesis statement and 2-5 paragraphs supporting and explaining the thesis. Remember to base your response on information and analysis from the readings. Cite the required readings at least 3 times, and cite broadly from a broad range, not the same reading 3 times. Note: Maps count as readings. Explain what you learned in your own words, and do your best to synthesize the authors’ analyses into your own original analysis; do not rely exclusively on quotations from the readings to make your points. Please change the title of your post to something unique. Note which question you choose to answer.
