How did the change impact society at the time?

The Church slip even more , because King Henry VIII wanted control over the church in England and also because he was very ready to father a son to continue his dynasty , he was denied a divorce by the pope , which cause schism which cause the split into a new Church called the "Anglican Church". the reason why he did this , is so that he could breakaway from the pope , and try to divorce his wife again.


Also , Martin Luther wrote the 95 theses telling the catholic Church for its corrupt practice of selling indulgences or the forgiveness of sins. Later on in January 1521 , pope Leo X excommunicated Martin Luther.

  • The Church treats everyone the same .
