Objective: Enlightenment ideas challenged practices related to religious authority, monarchy, and absolutism.

Enlightenment and Absolute monarchy


Until the 1700s, people in general had accepted the rule of absolute monarchs.The exception was England, where, beginning in 1215 with the Magna Carta, the rights of the monarchy had been limited.But even in England, society was divided into strict social classes.

Absolute monarchy dominates the landscape


Some European rulers became interested in the ideas of the Enlightenment.They understood the usefulness of these ideas and accepted them, at least to a limited degree.None of the so-called enlightened despots was willing to relinquish any of his or her power to the people.Their style of governing became known as enlightened absolutism.
