Religion in the early 1800s
Transcript of Religion in the early 1800s
Vanessa Tyrrell Enlightment Philosophy Rise of Atheism History:
The main religion during the
early 1800's was Christianity & Catholicism.
1814- Jesuit order restored by the pope.
1847- Pope Gregor XVI condemns modern culture. Catholic clergymen agitate against "liberal reforms"
From early 1700's to early 1800's, there came
a period of time called "Enlightment Philosophy"
and from the early 1800's on "Modern Philosophy"
came into the world. Philosopher's were discovering new sciences and questioned the
existence of "God." Within the early 1800's there was a rise Atheism: The theory or belief that God does not exist.
Philosophy: The study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence.
Reformation: 16th century movement for the reform of abuses in the Roman Catholic Church ending in the establishment of the Reformed and Protestant Church.
Jesuit order: A Roman Catholic order to defend Catholicism against the Reformation and to do missionary work. Vocabulary: in Atheism around the world. Science and nature quickly took a toll on Christianity/ Catholicism. People began to discover true
elements of the world through science and philosopher's theories seemed more probable than religion. Frankenstein Aspects of religion are portrayed within the gothic literature "Frankenstein":

Also, the monster created arises from the dead. Just as in Christianity, Jesus resurrects from the dead.
Victor and the monster could also be motifs; God vs Satan DO NOW How do you think religious figures of the 1800's reacted to the story of Frankenstein? This was the first time people began to openly deny the church and it's possible myths.
