to what extent and in what ways did women participate in the Renaissance? Women participated in the Renaissance socially by maintaining the household, politically by marrying kings and having heirs; occasionally ruling nation states, and religiously by serving God.

Political figures during the sixteenth century influenced the course of the protestant revolution by controlling the power of the Church in their land—either to better it or not— having rule of their land—in which they make the laws—the signing of religious agreements/contacts and having the force to reinforce their religious, political power. S- poor peasants were frustrated with high political taxes and then the Catholic Church taxes citizens with indulgences P- Fredrick of Saxony protects Martin Luther. The confession of Augsburg & the start of Lutheranismis supported by some of the German Princes; Kings grow in power, popes decrease, R- weakening Catholic Church built power of political leaders; Lutheranism, Catholicism, Calvinism, Ana-Baptists, Angelicans all have some political support although the ana-Baptists don't have much I- idea that political leaders can challenge the Pope, nation states grow in legitimacy T- The printing press by Gutenberg Political authorities influenced the course of the Protestant reformation by either trying to help Martin Luther or prevent him from spreading Catholicism. Politically, Fredrick of Saxony protected Martin Luther by holding him in his house until it was safe for him to be released, Socially, poor peasants were frustrated with high taxes and religiously because the weakening catholic church built the power of political leaders.
