Developed in France, Britain and Germany, the Age of Enlightenment
influenced the whole of Europe including Russia and Scandinavia. Many
of the United States' Founding Fathers were also heavily influenced by
Enlightenment-era ideas, particularly in the religious sphere (deism)
and, in parallel with liberalism (which had a major influence on its
Bill of Rights, in parallel with the Declaration of the Rights of Man
and the Citizen), socialism and anarchism in the political sphere. The
movement helped create the intellectual framework for the American and
French Revolutions, Poland's Constitution of May 3, 1791, the Latin
American independence movement, the Greek national independence
movement and the later Balkan independence movements against the
Ottoman Empire, and led to the rise of classical liberalism, democracy,
and capitalism.
