Review Questions Why was Mesopotamia the center of such upheaval and warfare in these early centuries? What are the differences and similarities between Judaism and Zoroastrianism? Why did the Egyptians engage in pyramid construction and mummification? Why was reincarnation such an important religious belief for them? Who was the most interesting of the ancient Greek philosophers? What is stoicism? Responses to the questions should be substantive (75-100 words in length). Demonstrate a detailed understanding of the material (refer to specific pages and sections), model critical-thinking, and be written with clarity and originality (no cut-n-paste of comments from texts).
