The protestant reformation

Against the Roman Catholic Church

The protestant reformation was started primarily by Jan Hus. He spoke out against the Roman Catholic Church, telling about problems including the mass being spoken in latin, and buying indulgences to get out of purgatory. Later, Martin Luther posted the 95 theses, with 95 problems he had with the church. Even later, King Henry the 8th broke away from the church because the pope wouldn't let him get a divorce, forming the Anglican Church. His daughter, Queen Elizabeth the 1st, was also Anglican.
