What was the change?

The Reformation was a movement for religious reform in the Catholic Church. King Henry the VIII decided for himself that he wanted to remarry because his first wife, Princess Katharine of Aragon, did not give him a son. King Henry asked the pope to annul, so he could get married again. The pope refused. King Henry later got out of the Catholic church so he could remarry.

Who were the people associated with the change?

How did the change impact society at the time?

The Reformation was a movement for reform that led into finding new Christian churches. Also, the Catholic Reformation keeps Catholic believers loyal to the church. Before all this started, the church ruled how the people lived. After, Luther started his protesting, it changed the life on how the people lived. They had the choice to choose their religion and how they wanted to live. Luther felt the whoever believed in indulgences will be doomed to Hell. Luther also thought that the pope should pay for the church instead of paying for indulgences.

How is that change evidenced in today's modern society?

It stopped the pope's indulgences. It also created a better Catholic Church. If Luther didn't protest the pope's indulgences, we would still today have to pay for our sins to be forgiven. The belief of the Catholic church had now changed the world. Everyone had the freedom to choose their church. ☺
