From Christendom to Modern Europe, 1650-1750 During this time period. This new attitude is described as “modernity” of “secular’. It goes against the previous things of what it meant to be a Christian. 1. The scientific revolution, 1600-1700 - Other cultures have generally looked to the west in this. These ideas tended to go against those of the churches The Heliocentric theory: Copernicus(1473-1543) – he says that the sun is at the center of the universe not the earth. This was just a theory he had no proof he simply had good arguments for this through mathematics. Galileo (1564-1642) Trial, 1632 – He was Italian came from Florence in part of the Renaissance. His proof came from a new invention it was the telescope. He did not invent it. He was the first person that we know that could observe the surface of the moon. He made some other discoveries that convinced him that Copernicus was right. He published his views and the church attacked him. He says that you cannot rely on the bible for nature views. He is called before the Roman inquisition. Galileo recants he does not have the same kind of courage that Luther did. He wanted to live out the rest of his life he had some important things to do.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
