There was a big change in historical events, ideas, and actions in the Renaissance period, Reformation, and Scientific Revolution. There many people who have influenced or impacted the Renaissance in either political, social, religious, economic, educational, environmental, scientific. John Calvin had a great impact on religion in the Reformation period. John Calvin was one of the many people to successfully reform on the church. John Calvin had many people who followed him and agreed with his reformation on the church so he called them Calvinists.
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).
The Great Awakening was most successful in uniting the colonial America people in the understanding of the Christian faith and life. Despite it achievements, the Great Awakening ended up weakening the significance of clergy as believers started depending on their conclusions. The movement also resulted in the development of different cults and denominations and promoted religious tolerance. This movement resulted to the challenging of the traditional authority of the clergy which eventually led to the challenging of the authority of the King (Edwards, et. All,
Urban II was the pope from 1088 to 1099 when he died. His role in society was important because he set the foundation for the Roman Catholic Church. He influenced many other clerics and noblemen to stick up for Christian faith, so the Catholics could get what they truly deserved out of this world. Urban II’s greatest accomplishment was the crusades. Europe’s economy deeply excelled during these years, which turned this country into an economic role model.
This goes to show you that Luther and Zwingli didn’t have the same thought on everything. Surprisingly Martin Luther refused to shake hands with Ulrich Zwingli at the end of meetings. In conclusion, Ulrich Zwingli was a very interesting man, it is actually possible that before he moved to Zurich as a Common Preacher he did not read any of the Lutheran Literature. Zwingli had four kids named Regula, Wilhelm, Huldreich, and Anna .On New Year’s Day, 1531 Ulrich Zwingli’s life came to an end where he died on the battlefield in Kappel am Alibs, Switzerland. Zwingli’s body was quartered, burned and mixed with dung to keep his aches from being used as relics after his
The topics I chose to write about were Martin Luther, The Anglican Church and Martin Luther’s texts.

Churches at this time had a large amount of power over people’s villages and God was considered the center of everything. Churches decided what books were ok for its people to read and what services didn’t pollute the community. () The church would sometimes have the final say over kings as well. Churches were the on the highest part of the social scale. Laws were even made based on religion.
Johannes Guttenberg contributed a lot to the impact of the Reformation. He created a very important machine that helped advance the production of books faster. He also helped produce many more books in a lot less time than it used to take before his invention came along. Johannes Guttenberg's work as an inventor had a major toll on the Reformation, he helped spread ideas by just invention one machine. Johnnaes Guttenberg was born into a merchant family and was a blacksmith and goldsmith.
The Reformation had more of an impact on Europe than the Renaissance. The Reformation had many great reformers including Martin Luther, John Calvin and Henry VIII and his family. There were also many ideas that changed Europe for good. The Council of Trent and the Thirty Years War. With those reformers and wars, it changed Europe forever.
The Renaissance, which was one of the main catalysts of the Reformation rejected the blind obedience and encouraged innovation, focusing on the potential within every human being. Some historians argue that Luther’s revolt against the Church was a final stage of the long and widespread campaign supported by various individuals and movements, which were skeptical about some of the beliefs and practices of the Catholic Church. One of them was John Wycliffe, who produced a vernacular Bible in English (1338). Jan Huss (1368-1415) was another famous person who was very popular, particularly in Bohemia (part of the present-day Czech Republic), who was eventually martyred by being burned in front of the public because of his notorious heretical
