Visiting the French Royal Academy, Louis XIV displays support for science (Doc 8). Being the monarch of the French State, he had to show he was involved in these new enlightened ideas, it was done as propaganda move to attract the French people and scientists. With the help of Jean-Baptiste Colbert, Louis XIV's finance minister, Louis was able to capture this image of an enlightened leader. Colbert believed that art and science should flourish, but believed this solely for the respect and advancement of his country (Doc 1). His personal reputation and high ranking position attributed to his decision to support scientific work.
The Enlightenment followed by the Scientific Revolution. The scientific method was the way to new science. A lot of scientists and thinkers helped us today with their ideas. The Scientific Revolution made a huge impact to our world today.

King Louis, also known as the sun king was a very extravagant ruler and had absolute control of France for the time of his reign. During this time, Louis spent large amounts of money on his interests, while having great influence over the people with a strong personality and making sure other influential people did not go against him. One of the effects on France by Louis XIV”s rule was the damage he did to the economy with things such as his own extravagances and a large amount of spending on the Versailles palace. Many other conflicts, such as the widespread persecution of Calvinist Protestants (known as Huguenots in France) and France’s involvement in many unsuccessful war campaigns caused France’s deficit to be double the amount of the yearly income of France. The damaging habits of the king and the damaged economy nearly pushed France to disaster and were just one of the many problems that emerged from the reign of Louis XIV.
He started studying Theology when he was 14 years old, in a university in Paris. He was not a novice in the biblical languages, but was not formally theologically trained like Luther. While being there, he became interested in the teachings of Humanism. He also became attached to a reform group trying to reform the Roman Catholic Church. In about 1528, when Calvin was 19 years old and he completed his Master’s degree in Theology, his father sent him to the University of Orleans in order to study law, as Martin did too.
Arianna Paulin Mr. Bonnet World History II, French Revolution 27th of October, 2017 Through His Actions and Policies, To What Extent was King Louis the XVI Responsible for the French Revolution? Introduction Paragraph Between the years of 1785 and 1793, the French society was on the verge of collapsing. There was poverty and famine roaming the streets, making it nearly impossible to survive given the ridiculously high and unjust taxing system. King Louis XVI, who was the ruler at the time, was a main contributor to these problems that led France to its downfall. The country had a massive lack of resources and food, which led King Louis XVI to borrow more money than he could afford, thus putting the country in immense debt.
Take, for example, Francis Bacon and Isaac Newton. In his philosophy, Aristotle believed that the way to understand nature is to use reasoning and he also helped start ideas about the scientific method. Francis Bacon then took it and create the official scientific method and he believed in Aristotle’s philosophy about nature. Some of Aristotle’s notes are also related to the law of objects at rest. He made some discoveries about objects and their motion.
For example, Clark writes, Exclude God from the definition of science and, in one fell definitional swoop, you exclude the greatest natural philosophers of the so-called scientific revolution—Kepler, Copernicus, Galileo, Boyle, and Newton (to name just a few). (2014: 42) Others authors even go as far as to claim that Christianity was unique and instrumental in catalyzing the scientific revolution—according to Rodney Stark (2004), the scientific revolution was in fact a slow, gradual development from medieval Christian theology. Claims such as Stark’s, however, fail to recognize the legitimate contributions of Islamic and Greek scholars, to name just a few, to the development of modern science. In spite of these positive readings of the relationship between science and religion in Christianity, there are sources of enduring tension. For example, there is (still) vocal opposition to the theory of evolution among Christian
The reason why the religious clerics, monks and priests, who are in their faith add various fabrications and superstitions, such as the lifting of Jesus, as, with the degree of man to the level of deity, sin and opraštajnice, crucifixion and other things that had no foundation in faith. This was added the many falsehoods about the origin of the universe, the position and shape of the Earth and human life. When the European Renaissance began when they discovered many scientific truths, there is a major conflict between scientists of natural sciences and the church, which has denied these scientific truths and discoveries. Then the Church, anyone who believed in the truth of scientific discoveries, considered an infidel, heretic, and those killed and burned. Many scientists and scholars of natural sciences experienced such painful ordeals as punishment for opposing views of the church.
The role of Science in society Accelerating scientific discovery in the second half of the twentieth century, and the expansion of technology have radically influenced people's living conditions. Scientists over time have contemplated the nature and discovered how It works. Engineers have used the discoveries of scientists and created machinery, technology , property etc. , that the industrialization have made available to all people . The transfer of discoveries and inventions during the second world war (radar, the jet, ballistic missiles, nuclear fission and achievements in the field of information technology) along with organizing the work of scientists in research institutions,
