Our pick of the answers:

1. Dante Alighieri
Wrote the Divine Comedy, a tribune of three cantos, Inferno, which describes his journey through the spheres of hell, Purgatory, and finally Paradiso, which ends with a long prayer to the Virgin Mary and his meeting with the Trinity of God. The significance of Dante’s work is that: he is considered the father of the Italian language who showed the poetic capability of the vernacular and his work represents much of the medieval view of work, including both concepts of sholarticism and the acceptance of classical (the inclusion of king Minos, for example, as a judge) and Christian faiths as well.
2. Charlemagne
The founder of the Holy Roman Empire after being crowned by Pope Leo III for defending the church against the attacks of the Lombards, whose reign was marked by a union among the western half of Europe and the encouragement of a common European identity (that was not seen in the separate feudalistic kingdoms of the west at the time) and an economic and government reform that, as wikipedia tells us:”Charlemagne had an important role in determining the immediate economic future of Europe. Pursuing his father’s reforms, Charlemagne abolished the monetary system based on the gold sou, and he and the Anglo-Saxon King Offa of Mercia took up the system set in place by Pippin….This standardisation also had the effect of economically harmonising and unifying the complex array of currencies which had been in use at the commencement of his reign, thus simplifying trade and commerce.”
3.Joan of Arc
“Saint Joan of Arc, nicknamed The Maid of Orléans (French: ”Jeanne d’Arc”,[1] IPA: [ʒan daʁk]; ca. 1412[2] – 30 May 1431) is considered a national heroine of France and a Catholic saint. A peasant girl born in eastern France who claimed divine guidance, she led the French army to several important victories during the Hundred Years’ War, which paved the way for the coronation of Charles VII. She was captured by the Burgundians, sold to the English, tried by an ecclesiastical court, and burned at the stake when she was 19 years old.[3] Twenty-five years after the execution, Pope Callixtus III examined the trial, pronounced her innocent and declared her a martyr.[3] Joan of Arc was beatified in 1909 and canonized in 1920.[2] She is — along with St. Denis, St. Martin of Tours, St. Louis IX, and St. Theresa of Lisieux — one of the patron saints of France.

Joan asserted that she had visions from God that instructed her to recover her homeland from English domination late in the Hundred Years’ War. The uncrowned King Charles VII sent her to the siege of Orléans as part of a relief mission. She gained prominence when she overcame the dismissive attitude of veteran commanders and lifted the siege in only nine days. Several more swift victories led to Charles VII’s coronation at Reims and settled the disputed succession to the throne.”
4. Avicenna
Compiled the Canon of Medicine, which, for much was a standard medical text at countless medieval academies and, with:”discovery of contagious diseases and sexually transmitted diseases,[24] the introduction of quarantine to limit the spread of infectious diseases, the introduction of experimental medicine, clinical trials,[25] neuropsychiatry,[26] risk factor analysis, and the idea of a syndrome in the diagnosis of specific diseases,[27] and hypothesized the existence of microrganisms” that were introduced in the text.
5. Emperor Taizong of Tang
“He is typically considered one of the greatest, if not the greatest, emperors in Chinese history. Throughout the rest of Chinese history, Emperor Taizong’s reign was regarded as the exemplary model against which all other emperors were measured, and his “Reign of Zhenguan” (simplified Chinese: 贞观之治; traditional Chinese: 貞觀之治; pinyin: Zhēnguān Zhī Zhì) was considered a golden age of Chinese history and required study for future crown princes. During his reign, Tang China flourished economically and militarily. For more than a century after his death, Tang China enjoyed peace and prosperity. During Taizong’s reign, Tang was the largest and the strongest nation in the world. It covered most of the territory of present-day China, Vietnam, Mongolia and much of Central Asia until eastern Kazakhstan. It laid the foundation for Xuanzong’s reign, which is considered Tang China’s greatest era.”

In no particular order. Hoped I helped.

Ruth asks…

What is the Trans-Mississippi region?

Our pick of the answers:

The Confederate government created the Trans-Mississippi Department in 1862 after recognizing problems associated with trying to govern a region more than a thousand miles distant from the capital at Richmond. The original district included more than 400,000 square miles of land, some sparsely settled, some not settled at all. The region, which made up about one-half of the entire Confederate landmass encompassed Arkansas, Texas, Missouri, Indian Territory, and those parishes of Louisiana west of the river (thirty-one complete parishes and parts of six others). Even though much of the area was frontier, the population of Texas had increased 184 percent in the decade before the war. Arkansas had expanded 107 percent in the same period, and Missouri came in third with a growth of 73 percent. In comparison, Virginia’s population had changed only 12.3 percent and South Carolina barely 5 percent

Of the nearly nine million individuals in the Confederacy, around one-fifth lived west of the Mississippi River. In fact, 20 percent of the Confederate nation’s white population resided in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas. Yet the Confederate government ignored the region early in the war. Unionists soon had the upper hand in Missouri, Arkansas became vulnerable after Earl Van Dorn’s Rebel army abandoned the state in the spring of 1862 to join Confederates in the Western theater, and Texas, except as a resource for cattle and manpower, seemed to stimulate little interest in Richmond. The Trans-Mississippi even became a dumping ground for officers who failed in other theaters, and military leaders across the river looked to it for reinforcements and supplies for armies fighting elsewhere. Because of its proximity to the Western theater, Trans-Mississippi soldiers frequently found themselves in Tennessee, Mississippi, Alabama, and Georgia.

Washington and Richmond viewed the region’s assets differently. Abraham Lincoln understood the unique advantages the Trans-Mississippi offered. Texas was the gateway to the far west; it bordered on a neutral foreign nation, Mexico; and it was the only state that touched an international waterway, the Rio Grande. In addition, cotton grew abundantly in parts of Louisiana and Texas. While Jefferson Davis also recognized these advantages, he never saw the Trans-Mississippi as important enough to detour resources and manpower to its defense. Lincoln, on the other hand, fretted about his inability to mount a successful military operation along the lower Gulf Coast west of the Mississippi River.

The Trans-Mississippi was a vast untapped region. Texas led the nation in cattle, with an estimated three and a half million head, while Virginia and Georgia, the next largest Confederate cattle-producing states, counted slightly more than one million each. While stock from Virginia and Georgia went to feed Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia, the herds of Texas fed the men in the Western theater. Texas ranked behind only Tennessee in the number of horses and mules, fourth in the number of sheep, and seventh in the production of swine. Clearly, Texas was a significant source of livestock for armies in the west, but that could only remain the case so long as those animals could cross the river safely.

Few Confederate officials recognized the significance of the land west of the river. George W. Randolph, appointed Confederate secretary of war in March 1862, understood the importance of united action from one end of the Confederate nation to the other, but he was unable to convince the president. Randolph wanted to coordinate the armies across the river with those to the east, and believed that one overall commander could direct military movements more effectively. Using the Mississippi River to divide the Confederate nation made little sense to him, and he pointed out the necessity of having commanders in the Western theater work toward a common goal with those in the Trans-Mississippi.
