Discuss the origins of the Protestant Reformation? Martin Luther and John Calvin were
contemporaries of one another, but different from a religious theology, how
Reformation in the Protestantism begun with Martin Luther when he wrote and posted his Ninetyfive Theses touching on the faith and believes of the catholic church on the door of the Castle
Church in University of Wittenberg, in Germany, on October 31, 1517. Protestant Reformation
became the 16th-century political, religious, intellectual and cultural conflict that splintered
Catholic Europe, giving way to existence of structures and beliefs that defines continent in the
modern era, and this was geared by Martin Luther, John Calvin and Henry VIII whom confused
the papal authority and challenged the ability of the catholic Church to elaborate and explain
Christian practice. These reformers, Martin and Calvin, called for a religious and political
redistribution in the church to be on the principals of the Bible- and pamphlet-reading pastors and
princes. This then lead to great war where the protestants were murdered.
This act of the reformers lead to the reformulation of certain basic tenets of Christian belief and
resulted in the division of Western Christendom between Roman Catholicism and the new
Protestant traditions. The spread of Protestantism in areas that had previously been Roman
Catholic had far-reaching political, economic, and social effects. Martin Luther and John Calvin
were contemporaries of one another in that, being in different geographical grounds and
occupations, Martin in German and Calvin in France, both addressed and challenged similar
doctrines in the church. Calvin become a principal figure in the foundation and growth of the
system of Christian theology which was later called Calvinism. Some of the doctrines he taught
were that of predestination and absolute sovereignty of God in salvation of the human soul from
death and eternal damnation.
