This category deals with the Reformation, a movement which began in 1517 when Martin Luther posted a list of grievances, called the Ninety-Five Theses, against the Roman Catholic Church. As the spirit of reform spread other leaders appear: Ulrich Zwingli in Switzerland, French-born John Calvin who settled in Geneva, and John Knox who carried Calvin's teachings to Scotland.
