Wikipedia

  1. World history

    World history or global history (not to be confused with diplomatic, transnational or international history) is a field of historical study that emerged centuries ago, with leaders such as Voltaire, Hegel, Karl Marx and Arnold J. Toynbee. The field became much more active in terms of university teaching, text books, scholarly journals, and academic associations in the late 20th century. It examines history from a global perspective. It is not to be confused with comparative history, which, like world history, deals with the history of multiple cultures and nations, but does not do so on a global scale. World history looks for common patterns that emerge across all cultures. World historians use a thematic approach, with two major focal points: integration (how processes of world history have drawn people of the world together) and difference (how patterns of world history reveal the diversity of the human experiences).

  3. Cary Summers:

    Benjamin Franklin wrote. I firmly believe... without Benjamin Franklin concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel, a reference to the Old Testament biblical story that didn't end well for the builders. The museum also showcases the Bible’s influence on world history, culture, science, art and literature. One section of the museum is devoted to the Bible in America, its influence on presidents and the Founding Fathers like Benjamin Franklin, who quoted the Bible's book to explain the importance of the country's founders to abide by the book's wisdom. Cary Summers said it's important people have information about a book that has had such tremendous impact on the Western world. And it will be presented, warts and all, of how people used – and abused – its precepts. One of the goals of the museum is to put Gutenberg Bible back in the center of conversation.
