Between the 16th and the 18th centuries, a series of revolutions helped usher in the modern era in westen history.  First was a revolution in understanding , called the Scientific Revolution.  Second was a revolution of ideas, the Enlightenment.  Third was a revolution of actions-the American Revolution.  The scientific Revolution began when some astronomers questioned the old understanding of how the universe operates- one that was deeply tied to people's religious beliefs.  By shattering this view, the astronomers opened a new universe of scientific discovery.  And like their counterparts in science, the political thinkers of the Enlightenment challeneged established ideas aobut power and authority.  A ruler does not own authority by divine right, the thinkers said.  Rather, a ruler recieves authority by consent of the people.  Such ideasled to the political upheaval of the American Revolution.
