The Protestant Reformation

Report
9th Grade Social Studies
Fall 2011 Unit 3
The Big Picture

 Martin Luther began a movement to reform the practices
of the Catholic Church that he believed were wrong.
Reformation leaders did not intend to destroy Christian
unity but rather redefine it.
 Lutheranism, Calvinism, and Anglicanism produced a
dramatically new religious map.
 Catholic revival, and new tools such as the powerful
Jesuit order, preserved much of territory for Catholicism,
but it could not stem division.
 The result was a period of confusion and considerable
conflict, including concern about witchcraft.
Why we study this unit:

 Martin Luther's protests over the abuses in
the Catholic Church led to a permanent
split within Christianity.
 Nearly one-fifth of the Christians in today's
world are Protestants
 The Reformation's questioning of beliefs
and authority laid the ground work for the
Enlightenment.
