About this book

Introduction

Herbert Butterfield suggested that the Scientific Revolution was the most significant event since the rise of Christianity, reducing 'the Renaissance and the Reformation to the rank of mere episodes'. This study provides a brief survey and guide to the most important aspects of the Scientific Revolution. Taking account of the latest developments in our understanding of this aspect of European history, it is an invaluable guide for students and other interested readers.
