In political and philosophical ways, the Renaissance laid the groundwork for the Protestant Reformation. Historically and theologically the culture was prepared and ready for a sweeping change in church hierarchy and how it provided for the people of the early modern period. Martin Luther was in the middle of the strife and political agendas present as the Catholic church began to change. What was Martin Luther’s argument with the Catholic Church? Why did it drive him to form a new church? What was different about this new “church” from its Catholic predecessor?
