Science and Exploration

During the Elizabethan Era

Spreading Knowledge

The invention of printing allowed for knowledge to be spread more easily across the world. It allowed information that Greeks and Romans had done in mathematics, physics, astronomy, medicine, and other subjects to be spread.


All of the theories and information came from mostly males. Females who received education were taught about housewifely duties, music, and dance.

Scientists and their Theories

Famous scientists during this time included Copernicus, Galileo, Kepler, and Vesalius. Scientists during this time created the Scientific Method together which was based off of observation and experimentation.


Scholars were often persecuted because they had formed theories that the Church deemed contradictory to their beliefs. They would forbade people from reading books on prohibited information.
