While many of the technologies had originated in China, it was in the Western nations that innovation turned into invention, and invention into economic, military and social expansion. The European Jesuits sent to China from 1500 to 1700 failed to convert the Chinese to Christianity, and also failed to convince the Chinese of the superiority of Western culture. While the Western nations traded with the Chinese, the Chinese did not reciprocate. The Chinese eventually imported opium from Europe. Efforts to suppress the opium trade led to conflict with Great Britain whch led to the Opium War, 1839 in which China was defeated and entered into an economic slump and decline
