What Was The Change?
The Scientific Revolution (16th and 17th centuries) was a time period where physics, astronomy and logic changed the world view of life and the world as we knew it. The scientific revolution changed the way we look at the universe by introducing the theory of Heliocentrism the the theory that the earth is not the center of the universe and that the sun is. Originally, it was assumed that the earth was the center of the universe and that the universe was held together by giant crystals. There were layers in the galaxy; with put heaven at the very end. This new theory of Heliocentrism went against the church, because the old theory of geocentrism seemed to go along with the church in every way possible, but this new one didn't. The new model of the planets did not show where heaven was in the universe. This new technology made the church angry.
