Martin Luther
95 Theses
Diet of Worms
1. The English Reformation was not based on theological disagreement.

2. England ultimately ended up staying protestant, even after the death of King Henry VIII.
Even before Luther posted his 95 theses, Zwingli openly opposed pilgrimages and indulgences

Protestantism opened the doorway to many Christian denominations.
The Reformation came about due to controversies in the Catholic Church which were instigated by the reformation leaders in Europe whose reforms created a plethora of wide ranging outcomes reflected throughout history and into society today.
