Why was monasticism so important and influential in Europe during the first millennium?

First, people believed in God and the church. Second, people saw monastic life as a way to life in peace and security in a chaotic world.

During the first four hundred years of the middle ages, people in western Europe were badly exposed to armed groups of people who were migrating or raiding. The Germanic tribes were a type of such groups, and the Vikings were another. People who lived in the countryside needed protection, and this could come if they moved to walled cities or organized themselves under local, able leadership. Both of theses routes provided some security, but at a price. In those days things were so bad that many people literally sold themselves into slavery in exchange for security.

One alternative to this exposure was living in a monastery. Monasteries were sacked and destroyed, just as towns and cities were, but they were not as tempting as targets in most places. People in them had a better chance than many in the countryside, also.

Does Poland use the Euro?

No, the currency of Poland is the Polish złoty (PLN), but like most other EU member states, Poland is obliged to adopt the euro once the Polish economy meets certain criteria. However, the predicted date of this adoption is gradually put back by the ruling politicians and Poles are increasingly sceptical about the common EU currency.

Why is Kaliningrad an important port to Russia?

Before WWII Kaliningrad belonged to Germany (earlier Prussia), but in 1945 Russian leader Joseph Stalin wanted to get "kusok giermanskoj ziemli" ("a piece of German ground") and the city was incorporated to Russia. It is an important port because other Russian ports in Baltic Sea are located far in northeast. It was (and still is) a great base for Russian naval forces. But there is one problem - there is no land connection with other parts of Russia.

How did Joliet Marquette and La Salle affect the conflict between France and England in the 1700s?

Well, all 3 explorers (Joliet, Marquette and La Salle) did not have any "direct" hands-on influence on the ensuing British-Franco conflicts. However, some of their discoveries and following colonizations of the territories in the Americas eventually led to what is known as the French and Indian Wars. Many French colonies practically bordered with other British colonies, that led to many conflicts, each with its colonies and Indian allies on its side on a bid for the western territories.

Following France's defeat in the Seven Years' War, the Treaty of Paris was signed in 1763 and all French colonies were to be divided between the British and the Spanish. It wasn't until the Napoleonic era where France were able to get back some of the territories they lost, though only for a brief period of time.
