From the emergence of Western Civilization to its “renaissance” in the fourteenth century, religion played an instrumental role in shaping virtually every aspect of life in the West. What were some of the fundamental ways religion, especially Christianity and Judaism, shaped the West after the fall of the Roman Empire? What were some of the key problems solved and created by religious institutions? How did religion shape the relations between the West and civilizations it came in contact with during this time? Would you say that religion ultimately played a more stabilizing or destabilizing role during this period? (You should focus your answer on the period between the Fall of Rome and the Renaissance/Reformation.)
