Document Summary

There was a lot of corruption in the roman catholic church, too many people were saying that they were popes etc. Power belongs to the hand of the people not to the hands of the popes. They weren"t trying to open new churches they were only trying to reform new churches. The number of people who could understand the bible was a few. The people who spoke latin (that was the only bible that existed that time) was a few. Priests and popes thought that they were the ones who interpreted and read the bible only. But that was not fair because everyone had to read it and understand it. Martin luther was the most important figure in the reformation of church. He was not looking to leave the roman church, he wanted reformation. In 1510, he went to rome and he was shocked by the corruption of the clergy and the priests.
