- Group(s): Ideologies - Liberalism
The Enlightenment was a philosophical movement that emerged within Europe during the seventeenth and eighteenth century. The Enlightenment represented a challenge to the prevalent ecclesiastical orthodoxy of the time in which the natural order of things reflected God’s will, and any challenge to the status quo was a challenge to the will of God. The Enlightenment should therefore be understood, first and foremost, as a revolution of ideas against the conventional wisdom of the day.
