Ambitious people were killed in the name of the Catholic Church for their scientific and philosophical works which were often viewed as heretical. As time went on however and the truths of scientific research and exploration showed themselves time and time again the collective perspective of the population began to shift away from religious dogma toward the logical scientific method. The Enlightenment gained traction in the 17th century and more emphasis was given to scientific techniques in the schools as well as to the separation of religious and scientific data. Religious philosophies also became less rooted in the exact words of the Catholic Church as papal authority gave way in many European countries to splinter groups of Christianity such as the Calvinists Lutherans and other types of Protestants. Major figures of the Enlightenment period include Voltaire Isaac Newton John Locke Thomas Hobbes David Hume Jean-Jacques Rousseau Adam Smith Immanuel Kant and Thomas Jefferson. These and many other great thinkers of the era influenced mass social upheaval in pursuit of equality and human rights and many historians consider the culmination of these efforts to have been the French Revolution of 1789.
