The Catholic church has been highly respected for centuries throughout the world. But during the 16th century, a German monk named Martin Luther challenged the Catholic church of their holiness and revealed to the world the real truth behind their saintliness. He wanted to let the world know that the so-called righteous were not really as they seemed; they were as identical as the fraudsters we have today.
Saint Francis was born in Assisi late 1181, early 1182 being one of seven children, and his parents were Perto and Pica di Pietro di Bernardone. Perto was a wealthy cloth merchant and Pica was a beautiful french woman that also owned farmland around Assisi. Francis was originally born Giovanni but when his father came back from business he continuously called him Francesco.
Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of one of our procurators, Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in Judea, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome, where all things hideous and shameful from every part of the world find their centre and become popular. Accordingly, an arrest was first made of all who pleaded guilty; then, upon their information, an immense multitude was convicted, not so much of the crime of firing the city, as of hatred against
The Reformation was a time in Europe in the 1500s in which people questioned the beliefs of the Catholic Church. There were many changes made by the catholic church. The people that were responsible were Martin Luther, John Calvin and King Henry VIII. 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 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. For example, Two leaders led these reforms and went against the church’s beliefs for different purposes.For personal reasons , King Henry VIII went against the church, whereas Martin Luther knew the church could not offer him salvation amongst other reasons.

Like Saint Augustine in the sixth century, Pope Gregory VII tried to reform the church in the eleventh century. During his first synod in 1074 C.E., Gregory " decreed that no one could be admitted to orders without a vow of celibacy and that the laity was forbidden to attend the services of an unchaste priest, deacon, or subdeacon." This statement stemmed from the pope 's ability of his plenitudo potestatis or fullness of power. The pope would have this authority, because the position of the pope marks a lineage that is supposed to lead back to St. Peter, who the Christian religion was built on. If an individual did not follow Gregory 's decrees, they would receive escalating punishments. As a way to enforce his laws, Gregory would write

Even though many people now associate Rome with the Catholic Church and the beginning of Christianity, this Mediterranean epicenter used to be the center of conflict with the Christians. Because of the differing views, the Roman government was unwilling to allow Christianity to thrive in Rome and systematically denied them their religious right. The early Christians throughout the Roman Empire feared the government and the laws because of the persecution that lasted for centuries. While the Roman Empire fixated their attention on their worldly lives, Christians focused on what is to come after death. Two examples of the different views of the Romans and early Christians are Marcus Cato by Plutarch and the Gospel According to Matthew. In these separate works, the differences of their attitudes, actions, and beliefs on human
Saint Sebastian was in the Roman Army. He did that to help the Christians who were being persecuted. When he was a guard he made many people turn to God by helping them. When he was discovered to be a Christian he was put to death by the emperor. He was tied to a tree and shot at by archers until he died. When the archers saw he was dead they stopped. After they left Irene of Rome nursed him back to health. After he was better he went back to stop the persecutions of Christians but was captured and clubbed to death and thrown in the sewers.

In 1195, I was born in the city of Lisbon, Portugal to a wealthy family. Back then I was called Fernando Martins. When I was fifteen, my parents sent me to the Abbey of Santa Cruz in Coimbra (during that time, Coimbra was the capital) to become a priest. After I became ordained, they told me to take charge of the hospitality of the Abbey. While I was in Coimbra, I met some Franciscan friars at their settlement dedicated to St. Anthony of Egypt. They told me about how some of their friars had been beheaded during their ministry in Morocco. I thought to myself, I too should give my life to God. I then joined the Franciscans and changed my name to Anthony.

In this essay I will discuss the Franciscans’ complex and evolving views on poverty from Francis to Peter Olivi. My discussion will look at his ideas on poverty as a way to live, as a concept and Francis’s own adherence. Later it will examine why the pragmatic latter leaders were required to change the idea of absolute poverty, and control the heresy within the order. Where Francis of Assisi, and the Order he founded of the Friars Minor (little brothers) did not attack the wealth and power of the Church they were not a problem,
