The Scientific Revolution, which took place during the 16th and 17th centuries, was a movement among two other extremely pivotal events that impacted European life entirely. The Protestant Reformation caused long-term conflict and destructive religious wars when Martin Luther proposed an alternative theological interpretation that upset the corrupt but accepted Catholic Church. European Expeditions of the New World of the Americas led explorers to encounter and learn about new people and environments, of which much was still unknown. These two events caused Europeans to question nations religion or that had been accepted through a limited view of the world. The Scientific revolution was questioned by many people because they were unsure about the religion and not many people new about the religion at the time. And they were more focused on education more than religion.
