The Scientific Revolution
By: Kari Moyer & Brett LeClair
1535 CE: First anatomical text based on human dissections
1543 CE: Copernicus discovers the earth revolves around the sun
1632 CE: Galileo proposes the concept of inertia
1609 CE: Creation of first telescope
1590 CE: Creation of first compound microscope
1665 CE: Calculus is developed
1687 CE: Newton's Laws of Motion are published
Causes of the Scientific Revolution:

Monarchs funded scientific research

The Renaissance
The renaissance triggered the start of the scientific revolution because of the renewed interest in philosophy, science, and mathematics in that era.
The monarchs of the 14th-15th century contributed by funding the research of many famous renaissance mathematicians, philosophers, and scientists. They believed that these scientific breakthroughs could:
Promote trade
Centralize government
Influence religion
Essential Content
The discoveries of the Scientific Revolution were broken up into 3 main categories:




Belgian anatomist
Social Impact
-Roman Catholic Church opposed views of many scientists
-scientists did not want to challenge role of Christianity
-science explained the world through logical reasoning whereas church explained it through inspiration
-church feared reason as an enemy of faith, but eventually accepted some of the achievements
-This disagreement lead to the creation of the Illuminati
Political Impact
-Galileo said mathematics were needed in order to understand the universe
-was tried & imprisoned for theories
-punished by members of Roman Catholic Church
-no separation of church & state
-Galileo's theories contradicted the Catholic interpretation of Christian scriptures
-was not denying God's perfection/ role of creator
-unable to convince church
-Galileo & other scientists argued that religious revelation was needed in order to understand meaning of things
