Do you know something about the period of Reformation? And for you what’s the most impressive element in this period?
yes, i like, for this time truth can be declared.
The Reformation (more fully the Protestant Reformation, or the European Reformation) was a schism in Western Christianity initiated by Martin Luther and continued by Huldrych Zwingli, John Calvin and other Protestant Reformers in 16th-century Europe.
It is usually considered to have started with the publication of the Ninety-five Theses by Martin Luther in 1517 and lasted until the end of the Thirty Years’ War in 1648. It led to the division of Western Christianity into different confessions (Catholic, Lutheran, Reformed, Anglican, Anabaptist, Unitarian, etc.).
There are, of course, too many effects to enumerate here. But here are a few of major ones:
The development of protestant denominations, beginning with Lutheranism and Anglicanism.
In England, specifically, Catholicism was replaced by Anglicanism (otherwise known as the Church of England), thus ushering in government_sponsored_religion.
Life changed for everyone in that shortly after the Protestant Reformation, there was a division between the sacred and the secular that had not previously existed.
The “Counter Reformation.” The Catholic church recognized that there were serious problems that needed to be addressed, and began the process of righting many wrongs, thus strengthening the character of the Catholic church.
