Estrangeirados (Portuguese pronunciation: [iʃtɾɐ̃ʒɐjˈɾaðuʃ]) were, in the history of Portugal, Portuguese intellectuals who, in the late seventeenth century and particularly in the eighteenth century, that were part of the process of expanding the Scientific Revolution, the Enlightenment, and other foreign ideas to Portugal


Estrangeirado comes from the Portuguese estrangeiro, meaning foreign. This is because the movements that these people tried to expand to Portugal were, for the most part, foreign in origin.
