How did the Protestant Reformation shape the later European social and political events that followed? Consider the 16th and 17th-century witchcraft trials, the 30 Years War, and the English Civil War.
NTK 5- The English Civil War was fought between the Parliamentarians and the Royalists of England. Royalty in Engalnd wanted one unified central government and church while the Parliamentarians wanted a more democratic system of Religion and Government with representatives and multiple branches of Christianity. War broke out and the Parliamentarians won, giving Parliament increased power over the Monarchs of England.
NTK 3- The 16th and 17th Century Witch Trials were caused by national religious zeal across European nations by Christian sects besides Catholicism. It caused religious disputes and mass bloodshed throughout the western part of the continent. Over 100,000 people were convicted and put to death in Europe for Witch Craft.
Thesis 4 :The Protestant Reformation shaped the later European social and political events that followed with the English Civil War by fighting the parliament against the royalists- parliamentarians won which allows the parliament to have more power over England Monarchs.
Thesis3: The Protestant Reformation shaped European social and political events later on with the 30years war because of the fact that this war dealt with the problems between Catholic and Protestant powers; the war lasted 30yrs because of political problems and also saw intervention with Cossack and Ottoman.
Thesis2: the Protestant Reformation shaped the 16th, 17th century witchcraft trials from the Protestants went after anyone who was thought to be a witch because others being scared; when after this was over there was 100,000 people convicted and charged of witchcraft.
NTK 4- The 30 Years War was a war fought in the early 1600s between newly formed protestant powers like England and France and old Catholic powers like Spain and the Holy Roman Empire. It lasted 30 years and saw Ottoman and Cossack intervention on the side of the Protestants because the Ottomans and Cossacks hated the Catholics just as much as the Protestants.
Thesis1 :The Protestant Reformation shaped European social and political events later on dealing with wars. The witch trials, 30 years war, and the English Civil war are examples. Also, the reformation first was wanting to reform the Roman Catholic Church but later got created a Protestant church, meaning that the religious movement later caused a change for the rest of Europes socially/politically history.
NTK 2- European Political and Social events after the Protestant Reformation were seemingly bloody and violent. Witch trials and wars such as the 30 years war were common. Lack of Catholic authority gave Kings and Queens immense and absolute power over their subjects, causing many new forms of Christianity and powerful individual nations.
NTK 1- The Protestant Reformation caused a change in religious thought in Europe. New branches of Christianity were formed because some people were angry with Catholic rule. This gave Kings and Queens much more religious freedom and power over their country because they had no ties with the Catholic Church, and the Church had no authority over them.
