Introduction In the sixteenth century, the Protestant reforms were such incredibly huge events for Christians. These reforms all had one common goal; to fix what they believed was wrong with the Catholic Church at the time. There were 5 different important Protestant reform movements of this time period. They included the Martin Luther reform, the Ulrich Zwingli reform, the Anabaptist reform of Zurich, the John Calvin reform, and the English Reform of Henry VIII. Martin Luther Reform The main person involved in the Martin Luther reform, was Mr. Martin Luther himself. He was born in 1483, on November 11th, in Germany. His mothers name was Margaret Luther, and his father’s name was Hans Luther. While Martin Luther planned to become a lawyer, just as his father had wanted, a horrific incident resulted in Martin Luther’s change of heart to serve God instead. To carry out his plan to serve God, Martin Luther dedicated his life to be a monk (Lohse 1986). In the year 1517, about 12 years after he, “abandoned the study of law and entered the monastery in Erfurt of the Order of the Hermits of St. Augustine” (Encyclopedia Britannica), Martin Luther started the Protestant reformation. On October 31st, 1517, Martin Luther wrote his famous “95 Thesis” that he nailed to the church door. In just two weeks, everyone had heard about the news of the 95 page letter. As a result, he was shunned by the church (2018 Nickens). When the Roman Catholic Church finally heard of the 95 thesis, they invited him to share his beliefs at the Augustine Order, where he convinced a lot of people that God is only seeking their faith, not perfection, confession, etc.
