What were the two most influential early civilizations on the European continent?
I like when an American person asks a question and then another American answers it. First of all the guy who asked the question answered it right away what European culture i…s most influental in Latin American the answer is well Latin culture what else. why do you think Latin America is called that, because of mayans or aztecs ?? lol. Latin culture originated in Europe in the province of Latium some 3000 years ago. and those same people or the original Latins created Rome, one of the cities that will later shape the Roman Empire and future Latin culture as well as the course of the World. Spanish, Portuguese or Italian are just subcultures the same way that their languages all derived from Latin. As for the calendar we use today, also the false information from the person that posted the answer previously. we didnt adopt our calendar from mayans because it was created before the people of the Old World (Europeans) even knew about the mayans or aztecs. it was the roman calendar that people use today with 2 major revisions from Gaius Julius Caesar (Julian calendar or old calendar) and later on Pope Gregory XII (Gregorian calendar or new calendar). Even the word calendar derived from the Latin word Kalendae="the called" which depicted the first day of every month. In short some other influences have shaped the Latin American culture as such but the core of it is Latin Culture ergo Latin America. pretty much the same way that Anglo America was shaped by northwestern European culture. Answer Latin America is mainly based on the cultures of the Spanish and Portuguese. But if you choose to include the Caribbean, it is based on strong African influences as well. In Mexico, the Incas and Aztecs had huge civilizations. They developed their own form of writing and our calendar is based of theirs. Other little influences are French, British, and from the Netherlands. But it is mainly Spanish and Portuguese.
I would say that number one is Johannas Gutenberg. He invented the printing press with movable type. This was a groundbreaking invention, and without him, and the printing pre…ss, knowledge wouldn't have spread nearly as fast, and the world would be nothing like what it is today.
North America and Europe
probably the French
Evangelical. Not apostle, as he never met Jesus; however, one could say he was the most influential missionary. Also, one could argue he was an influential latent homosexual.
england --- England and France
The Ancient Hellenic (Greek) civilizations. They gave us the ideas of a republic and governance as well as learning and philosophy. They laid the foundations of modern science… and gave birth to modern maths, logic, and the concept of a mathematic proof. However the Greek civilization is said to have been greatly influenced in the beginning by Ancient Egypt. If we are looking at inventions many other civilizations have contributed such as Ancient China who gave us paper, gunpowder and many other. Mesopotamia gave us the wheel. It is difficult to say that one civilization was the most influential because most of them are interrelated. However it is generally accepted that Ancient Greece experienced a "Golden Age" during which extraordinary advancements where made in all the main aspects of modern civilization.
England and France were paramount in the shaping of Canada's development.
Portugal. Which is why Portugese is spoken in Brazil today.
The Ancient Greek civilization and the Roman Empire. Their languages, culture, and ideology is either still used today or has heavily based modern ideas, culture, and language…s.
Africa and Asia
