1/26/08 HUM 2230 Chapter 9 Vocabulary: Reformation and Late Renaissance The Reformation began in 1517 following Martin Luther ’s attack on the Roman Catholic Church. He published his famous Ninety-five Theses in Wittenberg, stating that the two most important parts of Catholicism were faith and scripture, which he believed were losing importance with Catholics. The Reformation that followed divided what was once a totally Christian Europe into Protestant and Catholic nations. Martin Luther was not the only one to begin questioning the Catholic Church, however. John Calvin ’s Institutes of the Christian Religion expressed his main principle of predestination, or the belief that God determines before their birth which Christian’s will gain salvation.

Jan van Eyck
