They even occasionally destroyed what they could reach of it. A new artistic tradition came along.

These movements, along with the organized teachings of Lutheranism, allowed for the spreading of multiple devotions within different churches for Catholicism, Lutheranism, and Protestantism
When the Reformation happened it was a time when the church was very corrupt and had very different ideas about how people should act. The church was selling indulgences just to get money to pay for the church officials to party and drink. So when Luther’s ideas came out people thought that they were the right ideas and that they were better than what the church was actually teaching. Also with Luther’s ideas people didn’t have to spend as much money as they were like when they were buying indulgences. So with them having to spend less money they were more excited to practice Luther’s ideas.

During the 1830’s, here was a political backlash on immigration, specifically because of the fact that most immigrants at that time were Catholic. This was troublesome because back in the 1500’s the protestants split from the Catholic Church, and this new wave of immigration sparked fear that the number of Catholics would grow. The reason that this fear was made possible was because even though the United States constitution does not explicitly mention god, religion has had influence on politics. An example of religion having influence over politics was the Anti-Saloon League in 1895, which was a protestant movement aimed at democratic government and local rights which also incorporated an anti-Catholic sentiment. This group was the first major religiously motivated to successfully have an impact on politics in the United States.
The Puritans were English Protestants who believed that the alterations of the Church of England did not go far enough. In their view the church was too Catholic. In England, the Puritans were people of political influence, but King Charles did not agree with their attempts to reform the church.

As Francis is supposed to, he represented the Catholic Church as an united institution to the modern world; smoothly trying to open the minds of extremists but not crossing border lines. To achieve his main goal, to please as many different mind sets as possible, he left some topics off his speech.
