Three centuries later, Theosphrates was the first to conduct a
study of electricity, documenting various related phenomena. Then a century later, in 1752, American scientist Benjamin
Franklin demonstrated that lightning is a phenomenon of
electrical nature, a kind of giant spark. This observation,
coupled with von Guericke's insights into sharp objects,
enabled him to invent the lightning rod. It was a pointed pole
that, placed on buildings or ships, protected them from the
effects of electricity from clouds.
In the 18th century, the experimental work that began in the
previous century was accelerated. Other effects were soon
discovered and new paraphernalia developed while new
concepts were defined, an essential preliminary step in
understanding electrostatic phenomena.  We owe the Englishman Stephen Gray for the discovery of
electrification by influence, consisting of the possibility of
electrifying a body at a distance, without direct contact, as well
as the distinction between conductive bodies, which allow
electricity to spread, and insulating bodies, which inhibit this
transmission.
