Pick a German artist or architect, or a German work of art or architecture, and do a bit of research. (Certainly, musicians are “artists” too, but we will devote an entire discussion to them alone and their works in a couple weeks so let’s focus here just on art and architecture.) Then, share your research in your own words with me and your peers. First, let us know what you have decided to focus on and what inspired you personally to make this choice of topic. Next, discuss at least three reasons, supported by your research, why your chosen artist or architect, or German work of art or architecture is important. Wrap up your post with a simple reflection on what you consider to be the most important cultural aspect of your topic. Please include images, sounds, and/or videos to illustrate your presentation. Be sure to INSERT and NOT attach the images, sounds, and/or videos. Cite and fully reference sources, including images, with the Author, Title & Date, include links, and put quotes around direct quotes that you borrow. Images also require copyright permission if they are not Creative Commons licensed or Public Domain. For all your German and other foreign language references and citations, you should be using the MLA Style format.
Read your peers´ posts to enrich your understanding of the German-speaking world, past and present. Respond to your peers by engaging them in a discussion of their chosen artists and architects, and their works.

2. How did Buddhism find its way to China? Why do you think this outside belief was so readily accepted into Chinese society? How was Buddhism integrated into China?
How did Buddhism find its way to China? Why do you think this outside belief was so readily accepted into Chinese society? How was Buddhism integrated into China
Buddhism was initially introduced into China when Buddhist missionaries entered china through India by way of the silk roads and maritime trading routes. Historian have theorized that Buddhism spread so rapidly within china was because it met some sort of spiritual need while there was turbulence occurring within the country. The reading states that with the constant warfare and political changes, what Buddhism was offering would provide stability and offered an explanation as to why they were suffering as well as offered a path forward to enlightenment. This is no different than people finding solace in Christianity in todays world when they are looking for explanations or even when looking for hope. It was also very similar to Taoism and the two religions shared some of the same beliefs and even “borrow” beliefs from the other religion. Because they were using each others beliefs, Taoism is also how Buddhism was integrated into Chinese society. Politicians also used Buddhism in their favor. This was more to make themselves look better in the eyes of the people (much like today.) Buddhists also asked for blessings. During prayer and offering was made and Buddhists then asked for blessings in return which was appealing to them.

2.How did Buddhism find its way to China? Why do you think this outside belief was so readily accepted into Chinese society? How was Buddhism integrated into China?
I chose number two for this discussion post.
Buddhism originated in India and eventually spread across the eastern hemisphere. It was brought to china by merchants (or what some people would say monks). They brought their religion, lifestyle, and things to trade in China and Southeast Asia. It seemed like people took a liking to this new religion and appreciated what it is about. Most would say Buddhism is more relaxed and not so strict as Confucianism was. The warring state period was going on at the time Buddhism made it’s way to china and it brought a sense of togetherness and helped the Chinese get through those wars. During the wars the Silk Road Trade routes provided new avenues to spread Buddhism and the more it was shared the more people were able to change the beliefs to fit them. Buddhism seemed pretty straight forward and if you followed it the rest was customizable to you. I think it was so readily accepted because it was hard times and having something to believe in and having some hope is better than nothing, so I think people were ready to listen to just about anything. One of the Emperors in rule during the Han Dynasty was curious about the Buddha and sent people to go to India and learn about it, so it could be brought back to China. Emperor Ming Ti wanted to bring back the teachings and scripture from Buddhism and incorporate things into their society. The Chinese created a whole new version of Buddhism and that is why you can see mnay different statues of the Buddha with or without clothes smiling or not smiling.

What methods were used to spread Christianity throughout the West? How did the Church create a standardized doctrine? Why do you think the assimilation of different versions of Christianity was important to the strength of the Catholic Church?
Good day everyone,
With the new discovery of Quantum technology, I have recently traveled back in time into the beginning of the Zhou Dynasty and watched as the Battle of Muye took place.
The Battle of Muye brought an end to the Shang Dynasty and its ruler, Di Xin but the start of the Zhou Dynasty. Di Xin was once a loyal and honorable ruler, respected by his people. However, the spoils of his kingdom, high taxes among the people, and his selfish ways slowly led his own people to revolt against him. During the reign of King Wen Ji Chang, the state became stronger and “the world was divided into three parts, two of which belonged to Zhou”, laying the foundation for the destruction of the Shang Dynasty. After Ji Chang’s death, his son Ji Fa succeeded to the throne and was called King Wu of Zhou.(HistoryTopic, 2022).
On the day of the Battle of Muye, as I watched from the nearby hillside, the sun slowly peeked over the hillside and the dense fog fading from the hills. The air felt thick and heavy as the soldier’s armor. To the west, stood an army of approximately 50,000 Zhou rebel soldiers led by the son of the late Chief Wen, Wu of Zhou. You can hear the clanking of armor and horses neighing in preparation of the time ahead. To the east, an army stretched beyond the eyes can see was Di Xin’s Imperial army of 700,000. A force that felt would be swift and dominant. Di Xin’s arrogance wanted to swiftly end the rebellion and armed 170,000 slaves to further his rule however, it had the opposite effect and fueled the rebel forces with additional troops. Although tremendously outnumbered, the Zhou rebel army appeared energized and anxious to right the wrongs of their once ruler.
As the battle took place, some of the Imperial army forces laid down their arms and some even joined the opposing rebel forces to uproot the destructive Di Xin. The battle was intense as the 300 rebel war chariots raced across the battle field mowing down Imperial soldiers. Rebel soldiers holding their lines and pushing forward as Imperial troops retreated back to the east. The battle raged on and the rebel troops were inspired, highly trained, and were able to eliminate the Imperial forces driving Di Xin back to his stronghold. He would collect his prize possessions and set himself ablaze in defeat.
The Zhou dynasty, ruled ancient China for some eight centuries, establishing the distinctive political and cultural characteristics that were to be identified with China for the next two millennia (Britannica, 2002).
