His 95 theses which propounded two central beliefs that the Bible is the central religious authority and that humans may reach salvation only by their faith and not by their deed was to spark the Protestant Reformation.

The Protestant and English reformation were both reforms that took place in the 16th century against the Roman Catholic Church. Comparatively these reformations are alike and different in some sense.

The Protestant Reformation of 16th century Europe was primarily the result of three men and their disagreements with the Catholic Church; Martin Luther, John Calvin, and King Henry VIII forever changed the religious landscape of Europe.
The Protestant Reformation was when the Catholics were being judged on whether their ways of their church were wrong. It was also when another religion was formed out of that religion with the changes that were thought to be wrong. This was happening from 1500 to 1700.
Martin Luther was the man that started this all. He was a former Monk or Catholic Priest, that didn’t agree with some of the church’s views. When he voiced these doubts, he was removed from the Catholic Church and stripped of his name as a Priest. After this, he started spreading the word of the Protestant Reformation.

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. The Reformation started with religious movements that also lead to changes in politics, social life, and economics, though all of the changes couldn’t have happened without the religious part of the Reformation. The Reformation was the greatest religious movement since the early church.

The Protestant Reformation was important in European History because with it came a Counter-Reformation.The Reformation revealed corruption in the Church, such as buying and selling salvation—indulgences—for profit, simony, and the overall battles for power and wealth (within the Church). Martin Luther and John Calvin were crusaders for the reformation and were able to share their ideas and beliefs effectively; they were then accepted/recognized by the people—the educated and uneducated, the middle class and nobility.

The Protestant Reformation was an outbreak of resentment toward the Catholic Church in Europe starting in 1517. Catalyzing this era of reform was a man named Martin Luther, as he posted his Ninety-five Theses on the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany. The Ninety-five Theses were a list of questions and propositions regarding the Church’s corrupted traditions. This was an important event, highlighting the corrupt aspects of the Church, and kicking off an array of different plans to help reform the Church. People such as John Calvin, leaders in England, and most importantly, Martin Luther helped to kick off the start to a new era of change, by making their opinions publicized. People began to recognize these flaws and form their own opinions as to how religion should be, in result, creating new branches of specialized beliefs. The

Some of which consisted of corrupt priests, indulgences, or buying a ticket to heaven, punishment for other beliefs, and the church’s interference with the monarch. Because of this, heresies became popular. With disillusion rising a Protestant Reformation began. There were two major leaders that led the Protestant Reformation in Europe. The first was Martin Luther who wrote “95 Theses”, which were new religious beliefs, and nailed them to the door of the Wittenberg Castle Church. Eventually, he was outlawed and found refuge with Saxon princes, but his ideas continued to spread throughout Germany
This made Luther create a document called the the 95 Theses. The 95 Theses exposed the church in 95 different ways. Luther took this document very seriously. He even nailed the document to the door of the church so everyone could see. Some scholars raised some doubts about Luther and how this was disrupting the peace.

This resulted in the split between the Catholics and Protestants in Christianity. This was a significant turning point in history for the Europeans because it had an impact on religion and social history of the Christian

Throughout the sixteenth century, Protestant Reformations were a common theme among a vast majority of European countries. The Protestant Reformation that took place in Germany was led by Martin Luther, a former Catholic Monk. His reasons for Reformation were solely religious based, which was very different than the Reformation that took place in England. The English Reformation was led by King Henry VIII, but unlike Luther, his reasons for Reformation were personal. Although these two Protestant Reformations were very different, they had one highly important thing in common, they were both extremely large threats to the dominant Catholic Church.
