The Protestant Reformation had a massive sway on the visual arts in Northern European art. One of the main changes was that holy imagery was no longer the most significant feature in art. Iconoclasm took over as Protestant reformers encouraged the removal of pious images. The patrons of the north became more captivated in secular concepts and ideas, and they also wanted their messages about ethics to be shown in fewer godly behaviors. The Reformation led artists to seek patrons outside of the church; and several different types of themes were requested during this time.

A Whole New World The intellectual movements of the Enlightenment and the Reformation periods of time changed society through its numerous worldviews including defying the traditions of the pre-established thoughts of the past.

The Protestant Reformation was the sixteenth century religious, political, intellectual and cultural movement that spread across Catholic Europe, setting in place the structures and beliefs that would later define the modern era.
Lynda Shaffer has a theory called Southernization. Southernization is the theory that the non-West is enhanced by the ideas of the West through interaction and trade. Chinese inventions such as printing, gunpowder and the compass fundamentally changed Europe. The biggest result of the spread of ideas was the end of the Feudal System. Printing was introduced to Europe circa 13th century CE.
During the 16th century in Europe, The Protestant Reformation caused people to almost completely reject the previous traditions of Catholic art. They even occasionally destroyed what they could reach of it. A new artistic tradition came along. This moved away significantly from the Southern European tradition (as well as the humanist art during the High Renaissance). But, the Catholic Counter Reformation reacted poorly to Protestant criticism of the art in Roman Catholicism to produce a style of Catholic art.
I think that Martin Luther’s life and accomplishments have had the greatest impact on our modern world. “Martin Luther began the Reformation in the early sixteenth century” (171-174). He also wrote the 95 thesis. Without Martin Luther today may not be anything like it is, everyone may have had to be only one religion, people may not have been able to express their feeling the way we can now. “By 1520 Luther had begun to move toward a more definite break with the Catholic Church” (174).

Because of this, he wrote the Thirty-Five
The Protestant Reformation had a huge impact in all Europe in the sixteen century, but which ones were the factors that lead to it? It is very important to highlight that the European Christianity was falling into a noticeable corruption of its popes and some other high position members. Robbery, and even warriors were among of some factors that took the Cristian Church to a declining path. One of these examples was the Pope Julius II, which one won the nickname “the warrior pope” because he led armies against people. Furthermore, the church was not the only factor promoting this reformation, some other social changes were occurring with the masses in Europe; many of the peasants were being free especially in the western Europe.
The Reformation in the Renaissance At the beginning of the Renaissance, the “time” had been going backwards. The people seemed to forget the older way of life. Instead of having stone houses and castles, they went back to thatched roof huts. Even though people neglected things, they also discovered new facts like the sun was actually at the center of the universe instead of the earth.
