The Protestant Reformation Throughout the 16 th century, a stirring within the Roman Catholic Church occurred that brought about a revolution that is still being felt today. The Protestant Reformation was a movement in Europe to transform the present religion. Many scholars, monks and other high-ranking officials had a huge impact on the new religions that came about from the Protestant Reformation. The influence of the reformation was felt around the world and changed European life dramatically. There seem to be many causes of the Protestant Reformation. The rise of nationalism, the breakdown of the feudal system due to the Bubonic Plague, the Hundred Years War and the Renaissance were all major contributors to the rise in new religious thinking within the 16 th century. People began to fell discontent with the Roman Catholic Church and it seemed to become more corrupt everyday. The sale of indulgences, or certificates that would clear a sin or set a soul free from purgatory, seemed to strike a rebellious chord among some new thinkers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
