Notes
  • Two observations for the for the eastern europe. Romanian language is not a slavic one.
    Also for the etymology of slavs Slavs is an autonym derived from slovo which means „word”, originally denoting 'people who speak (the same language)” Its equivalence with slaves results from an unfortunately misunderstanding with the Byzantine Greek σκλάβος sklábos „slave” (same as in Medieval Latin sclavus or slavus)

Culture realms (use with culture realms core map)

  1. 1. CULTURE REALMS Aka Macrocultural Regions
  2. 2. COLOR AND LABEL
  3. 3. Note that some of “my” regions have different names from the “Culture Realms” (Macrocultural Regions) core map. Both are correct and can be used interchangeably. You should be familiar with both terms.
  4. 4. ANGLO-AMERICA Language—English Religion—Protestant Notes—Because of immigration, every possible religion and language are in North America. One big exception to the English/Protestant majority is Quebec, which is French speaking and Catholic

  6. 6. WESTERN EUROPE Language branches—Germanic and Romance Religion—Germanic speakers are Protestant, Romance speakers are Catholic Notes—The exception is that Greece is not Germanic or Romance, or Protestant or Catholic. Its language is Indo-European (as is Germanic and Romance), but it’s branch is Hellenic. Religion is Orthodox
  7. 7. EASTERN EUROPE Language—Slavic Religion—Orthodox Notes—The word “slavic” is where we get the term “slave” from because historically so many slavs were sold as slaves by conquering people
  8. 8.
