Transcript of What were the causes & effects of the Protestant Reformation

The Selling of Indulgences
Indulgences were paid pardons that would reduce the time one's soul spent in purgatory. Indulgences were considered the most controversial act of the Catholic church. The money from Indulgences was used to build St. Peter's Basillica in Rome
Groups Impacted by selling of Indulgences
All church officials, merchants, laborers, and bankers gained wealth from the profits of indulgences. State and National leaders like German princes were losing money because the money was moving to Rome. The poor were enticed to spend all their money on indulgences for a faster way to heaven.
Corrupt Practices within the Church
Indulgences were not the only corrupt activity. People were also questioning the moral authority of the church. The other questionable things were administrative practices, simony, nepotism, and pluralism. All these practices led to a loss of respect for the church.
