Prelude to Reformation

Martin Luther and the Reformation in Germany
What were Martin Luther’s main disagreements with the Roman Catholic church?
The Social impact of the protestant reformation
Because of the spread of Luther's ideas, certain social impacts were immediate:
many peasants, artisan's saw Luther's argument of biblical freedom- extending to material and theological meaning
this resulted in widespread uprisings (1524-1524), between peasants, miners and villages, due to landlord and local government tax increases (in the form of rent and rendered services)
contentions also occurred withing the academic, as universities, and subsequently (elementary school teachers), began to hire with religious orientation mind, subsequently affecting elementary education
female roles shifted as well along with changing roles placed on priests. Many, forced to re-examine their place in faith, protestantism offered an appealing route to permanent celibacy.
