The first traces of enlightenment are found in the early French philosophers around 1670. They comment the results of first scientific studies that tend to prove that the church is not all, and that there is much more to life than what it's representatives tend to make believe. The progress of science and the first "modernizations" bolstered the appearance of criticism.

There is little consensus on the precise start of the age of Enlightenment.Originating about 1650–1700, it was sparked by philosophers Baruch Spinoza (1632–1677), John Locke (1632–1704), and Pierre Bayle (1647–1706) and Isaac Newton (1643–1727).
