PROMPT This 1500-2000 word historical essay will be shaped primarily by primary sources, with the text material as background. . Make a historical argument, answering the following prompt, using 2-5 primary sources from the text, DVC library resources, or the pdf here: http://www2.uncp.edu/home/rwb/World History Documents.pdf What do you think was the impact of the new idea of monotheism in Western Civilization history, from its origins 3,000 years ago through to the Middle Ages? You may argue any point you wish, as long as it is plausible and supportable from the sources available. Don’t make things up…. Aim for a clear thesis statement. What is your argument? Is it feasible? Do the sources suggest this is credible? With regard to primary sources, consider: What do they seem to say? What is the main content or substance? What meaning may we derive from them? What are their limitations? What biases might be apparent? What don’t they say? Try to tie your source-based essay into the text’s chapters, which provide the main historical narrative. The best papers will refer to history or historical processes/events. You are expected to edit, fix grammatical errors, cite properly, and resist the urge to make excessive, subjective claims that can’t be supported by the sources or the text. Aim to write nothing evidence doesn’t support. . 1 Perry, Marvin. Sources of the Western Tradition, Voltaire, (Wadsworth, 2015), p142.
