Who: The Roman Catholic Church vs. the emerging Protestant Church

What:The reformation was a religious movement, originally intended to renew the church but ended up as a giant revolt against it, resulting in Protestantism. It had a huge and lasting impression on social, political and economic life and its predominance is still felt today.

When:The Reformation began in 1517. In 40 years Protestantism was established in over half of Europe.

Where:Protestantism was spread all throughout Europe during the reformation. Especially in countries in Northern Europe

Why: Northern   European countries such as Germany, England, France and Scotland, did not like the way the Roman Catholic Church was being run. They thought that the Pope was becoming more concerned with world power and money, and straying from the original intension of the church which was spirituality.
