What was the change?
In Europe, it was the change in the rebirth of learning and arts later questioned by scholars. Many at first didn't believe the new ideas that were developed. The study of the natural world began to be characterize by annotations and the inquiring of accepted beliefs is known as the Scientific Revolution.
Who Was Involved?
A Polis astronomer that discovered a new theory that the sun was the center of the universe. Also known as the heliocentric theory. He didn't publish his work quickly because he know that many scholars would go against his idea and their religious beliefs.
He discovered new mathematical laws that helped proved the heliocentric theory.
He bulit on new theories about astronomy. The church did not like the idea that he was studying astronomy, therefore he was threaten by the pope to say that Copernicus's ideas are false.
How Did The Change Impact Society At The Time?
As stated before, Copernicus believed in the heliocentric theory which states that the universe revolves around the sun. This change impact the society at the time because many questioned his theory and many believed that the earth was centered of the universe.
As previously said, Kepler created mathematical laws to help prove Copernicus's Ideas. This impacted the society at the time because many did't think that the theory was true, but math was the key to help prove the ideas of the the heliocentric theory discovered by Kepler.
This impacted the society at the time because new methods was establish to help bring inventions of science into action such as the Scientific Method. Because of the scientific thinking that Copernicus, Kepler, and Galileo began, this quickly developed into method of science which was used to gather information about the natural world and test your hypotheses.
