Main Ideas/Concepts
    *England was the model for other European nations during the Enlightenment because they had
    already embedded Enlightened Ideas within their government with their Bill of Rights and Glorious
    Revolution.
    *The Enlightenment reached its height in France because of the philosophe.  They met in salons to
    discuss the new enlightened ideas.
    *Enlightenment’s enduring effects mainly were its influences on many future governments including
    the United States.  Ideas such as Montesquieu’s separation of powers and Locke’s life liberty and
    property are seen both in the United States Constitution and the  United States Declaration of
    Independence.
