Transcript

  • 1. THE PROTESTANT REFORMATION
  • 2. III. Protestant Reformation
    Abuses in the Church
    Pope competed with princes for political power
    Sold indulgences – lessening of the time a soul would have to spend in purgatory
  • 3. B. Luther’s Protest (German Monk)
    Wrote 95 Theses against indulgences
    No basis in the bible
    Pope had no authority to release souls from purgatory, Christians could be saved only through faith.
    He was excommunicated from the church.
  • 4. Luther’s Teaching
    Argued salvation was achieved through faith alone
    Bible the sole source of religious truth
    Rejected the idea that priests had special powers
    Translated bible to German vernacular
  • 5. Spread of Lutheran Ideas
    Used the name Protestants to show that they protested papal authority.
    People believed Lutheranism was an answer to Church corruption.
  • 6. John Calvin
    Preached predestination- God already determined who would gain salvation
    Two groups of People, saints and sinners
    Set-up a theocracy – government ran by the church
