The works of monks in monasteries in the middle ages, specifically the copying by hand the works of ancient scientists and philosophers, enabled the Scientific Revolution.
Although many discoveries were made by Christians or as the result of Christian investment, both the scientific method and Christianity stem from humanity's desire to understand a universe that does not contain inherent meaning or purpose. Neither one caused the other. The scientific revolution would also be impossible without the previous works of non-christian philosophers and mathematicians such as Aristotle and Ptolemy. Christian monks simply played the role of making those works more accessible to more scientists, and are therefore no more important than those "ancient scientists and philosophers."
