 Writing Using the standard writing process of "pre-writing, drafting, revising, editing and creating a final copy," compose an original response to the following item:  

Discuss the ways in which the Middle Ages carried on the culture of ancient Mediterranean civilization and also added its own innovations. In its intellectual heritage, the Middle Ages incorporated classical rationalism (especially in universities) and the use of Latin as a common language.  Manorialism had its origins in the great farming estates of the ancient world. In religion, the Middle Ages, although carrying forward elements of indigenous northern European beliefs, widely adopted Christianity. The church, in turn, was one of the most conservative forces, incorporating classical forms of organization. The political outlook was different because of the lack of an empire and the corresponding development of a local and regional political focus. There was much more vitality in the economy and commercial structure (population growth was a strong influence here) than in the ancient world. The use of credit, banking, accounting procedures, the creation of a wealthy class, and the end of slavery also differentiate the medieval from the modern. Important innovations in culture included the creation of vernacular literary forms and of Gothic architecture.
