@Captain_Page_Turner Please help me
The following map shows the Byzantine Empire in 565 AD (CE), 1020 AD (CE), and 1360 AD (CE). Use the map to answer the following question: © 2012 The Exploration Company Which of the following is not true of the Byzantine Empire at its height? It controlled most of the Western European coast. It controlled land bordering the Red Sea. It controlled most of the land bordering the Mediterranean Sea. It controlled most of the North African coast.
24) I'd likely go with (A) that the Western Empire had lost most of its political, religious, and economic power. Under Justinian I, the Byzantines actually went out and reconquered a great number of those lands that the Western Roman Empire had lost. For the next question, there's no attachment for Cordoba? But I'd guess that the answer would be (C) at one point Spain was part of the Islamic world. That's absolutely true. It was part of the Umayyad caliphate (though it wasn't called Spain back then) and remained in Islamic hands until the Reconquista eventually drove the Muslim armies out centuries later. For John VII, that's that Patriarch of Constantinople who was a known iconoclast (one who is against icons). From what I've been able to read up on the piece, he's being ridiculed in this drawing -- so the first choice is probably the best one. As for the map question on the Byzantine empire's control of the Mediterranean, it controlled some of the land bordering the Red Sea, much of that which surrounded the Mediterranean, and North Africa. But the option that specifically points to Western European coasts can probably be contested -- you can see it for yourself when you look at the southern coasts of what would become France and the western coast of Spain as huge gaps in the Byzantine's control there.
