The Protestant Revolution

Author(s): William G. Naphy


When Martin Luther nailed 95 criticisms of the Catholic Church to the door of his local chapel in 1517, he set in train a process that not only changed the Catholic Church forever but had a profound effect on the world we live in today. This is the story of the Reformation and its lasting legacy - in effect how Protestantism created the modern world. It is a story of a revolution which has affected nearly every person in the West, and nearly every country in the world. It is a revolution which exists in every aspect of our everyday lives - influencing the very fabric of our existence: from what we do for a living, to who we vote for, from who we go to war with, to how we see ourselves as individuals and as a nation. It's impossible to underestimate the impact of the Reformation. "The Protestant Revolution", to accompany the BBC series of the same name, will explore the radical forces he unleashed and will examine the social impact of the Protestant Revolution, how it shaped family life, as well as the scientific, cultural, economic and political revolutions it brought about.
