Tempority Medieval Technology and Social Change

Tempority Medieval Technology and Social Change

(Tempority like territory. Of course, Matt. 28 talks of natios, but there 'the uttermost... of the earth.)

Re: White's 'Medieval Technology and Social Change' .

Short summaries of 3 and a question.

If a new method of warfare in the 8th C. brought us feudal nobles, and inventions increasing food supplies in the 6th-10th C. brought urbanization, and application of natural power and labor-saving devices after 1000 laid foundations for capitalism CAN WE LEARN FROM THIS?

That is, what technologies are bringing what social changes and/or what should we be inventing? Examples--vertical farming and self-sufficient cities. (Bledsoe's 'Metropolitan Manifesto, oath-formed cities in 12th C--Berman)

MegaShift and Watson's 80,000 churches in 15 years as new forms of Holy War evangelism (nobles). More if wanted.

[If 'we' can't invent, what should 'we' encourage? I know what the ur-basic ur-basic is.]

Love in King Jesus, Chuck
