Protestant Reformation, Christian Denominations
Reading: Ch. 3 “The Christian Tradition,” pp. 175-197
November 3rd, 2010.
Protestant Reformation
Tremendous criticism of the church, e.g. practice of selling and buying of clerical
orifices
Increasingly sense that people should have access to scripture
Association of church with various kinds of corruption—numerous shenanigans
of Popes and political struggle b/w one Pope and another.
Particularly during renaissance Popes threw themselves into culture of humanism
which is an appreciation of various types of culture and accumulated much wealth
in order to refurbish basilicas and commission various works of art such as the
sixteen chapel.
Many Popes known to have mistresses and laws passed to limit number of
mistresses and privileges of the Popes’ children
Witch hunt - Identify characters in community out of mainstream in one way and
to interrogate whether they’re agents of the devil, instruments of evil
Great amount of people were victimized, majority women
Attempts to cleanse the practice of Christianity, e.g through Monastic tradition
where each time new denomination forms to revert back to peurfical belief
Many piast people who put themselves out there to criticize practices and hold
church responsible for socially and religious problematic traditions
Martin Luther
Gets caught in severe thunderstorm and prays to St. Anne and said if he survives
he’ll become a Monk
He gives up his studies of law and decides to join a monastery and pursues
theological education
Criticism of church:
Practice of simony
Business of buying and selling offices
Practice of indulgences
Collect revenue for particular projects of that the church committed itself to
Premised on theological idea that in order to be a good Christian must have faith
in Jesus, but faith in Jesus is not enough and you must engage in charitable
practices, e.g. donating to church, indulgence releases loved ones from distress in
afterlife
Luther posted the 95 theses or 95 propositions, list of criticisms
