B. It led to religious reforms. The printing press made the Bible available to many more people, decreasing people’s reliance on the Church’s interpretation of scripture and leading people to question and criticize the behavior of some priests. It increased literacy. The availability of reading material made being able to read much more practical and desirable. It increased people’s knowledge of the world. Because printed material was much more widely available, ideas could spread more quickly.


Responses may vary on the inferential questions. Sample responses are given for those.

1. It was a loose economic organization of nearly 100 cities in the North Sea and Baltic Sea region that oversaw trade between cities in northern Europe. It lasted from around 1200 to the early 1600s.

2. London, Bruges, Marseilles, and Venice

3. The Venetian trade route was all on water, while the Hanseatic route combined sea and land routes.

4. Venetian: This route was all on water, with goods moving out of Marseilles, around Portugal and Spain, and finally to London.

Hanseatic: This route moved goods northward on land from Marseilles, Through Lyons, Paris, and Burges. From Burges, the trip was completed on a ship across to London.

5. It probably allowed smaller shipments the shortcut of avoiding a trip around the peninsula north of Lübeck.

6. Like the Mediterranean Sea, the Baltic Sea provides sea routes to connect several countries.

7. Because winter weather that far north produces great amounts of ice, the Hanseatic trade route was undoubtedly not open for the entire 12 months of the year.
