  • Martin Luther - 1,334 words
    Martin Luther The Reformation began in October 1517 when Martin Luther wrote his 95 theses. Luther was a well-educated son of a miner who earns the right as a middle class by working hard. Luther became a monk and while sitting in the tower outhouse he was inspired by Romans 1:17 The just shall live by faith alone.

    ... nion (a senior friar) set out on foot. The seven-week journey was long and difficult; the two travelers spent their nights in monasteries along the way. When they finally saw the city before them, Luther fell on his face and cried out, Blessed art thou, Rome, Holy Rome, (Luther 48). But he was greatly disappointed when he observed that the life on Rome was very sinful. He was amazed to find that the Italian priests were leading lives of luxury and self-indulgence.

While the Catholic Church struggled with its own predicaments, they too fought back to regain their credibil ...

    Utopia By More Focus Question: How does More comment on his times through Utopia? Syllabus outcome: Describe the interrelationship between the religious environment and the social and cultural context on which the literature draws.

However, Utopia is a fascinating book and gives an insight in European society just prior to the Reformation - obviously a time of major upheaval. My initial focus question was : How does Thomas More demonst ...
