The Gainsayish Overhaul (English: Protestant Reformation) began in the H16th when Martin Luther spoke out against many things, such as all-sin forgivings in Dutchland (at that time the Holy Romish Rike) and the deeming guiltless of sins. The Overhaul was the greatest overthrowing in the yorelore of Christhood since the Roman and Greek churches split in 1054.
Deeds leading up to:Edit
Umb 100 years beforehand, a man named Jan Hus spoke out against the teachings of the Church, but was burnt to death for it.
Then, in England, a man named John Wycliffe spoke out against the Romish Church and the elderdom of the pope. His followers - called Lollards - overset the Latin Writ into English for the first time in hundreds of years.
Then a Dutch brother (in New English 'monk') named Martin Luther came along. The more Luther read the Book, the more he ongot that the church had drifted away from the teachings of the Book. On the Winterfulth 31 1517, he nailed 95 claims to the door of the town church, unheling 95 kinches he had yemed with the church's deeds of all-sin forgivings. (The hirelings of the Roman Catholish Church were selling all-sin forgivings to raise geld to build a church for the Pope in Rome, taking outlandish amounts of penny from the neediest of folks.) Over time, he set up a list of church addles, namely the church's teaching on how one is deemed guiltless before God. (The Romish Church taught that by doing good works and buying all-sin forgivings, one earned God's kindness. Luther believed, however, that the Book taught that good works do not earn God's kindness, only God can deem someone guiltless.) He was shunned as a wrongdoer, leading him start his own church.
The English AgainmakingEdit
King Henry 8th wanted to unwed his wife. The Pope said, "No." The King talked to his overseer, Thomas Cranmer, pooled what he liked from Wycliffe, Luther, and others and started the English Church.
The Aftermath of Luther and the GainsayersEdit
Unlike Hus and Wycliffe before him, though, Luther had the stamping shove, which allowed folks throughout all the land to read his works and to read his Dutch oversetting of the Book. And unlike Hus and Wycliffe, his thoughts spread like wild-fire. The Romish Church awerged all his writings; some held all of them to be true; and some others agreed with some things he said, but not all. These inclose John Calvin, Ulrich Zwingli, and others, who shope their own churches. Later on men like Jacobus Arminius and John Wesley also started their own churches.
Hus' followers are now known as the Moravian Church in New English. Luther's followers the Lutherish Church, Calvin and Zwingli's followers the Againmade (Reformed) and Overseeish (Presbyterian) Church. Arminius' followers inclose some Baptists and some other churches. And Wesley's followers are now called Way-of-Workers (Methodists).
The Romish Allmean Church saw that indeed, there were some kinches in their godlore and teachings. They met together, made some shifts, and plotted what to do about the Gainsayers. They fought against every land that held Gainsayers. Those lands that won were Dutchland, Estonland, Sweden, Northway, Finland, Daneland, and the Netherlands.
