(LECTURE â€“ Discuss Catholicism on the Eve of the Reformation and Reformers within the Catholic Church prior to Luther)
2.The early reformers, Luther and Calvin, believed that everyone who opened their hearts to Jesus and followed the Bible would achieve eternal salvation. (LECTURE; LUTHER: The Bondage of the Will, excerpt; CALVIN: Institutes of the Christian Religion â€“ textbook, chapter 13)
3.Opposing the new ideas of Martin Luther which embraced free will, the Catholic Church rejected the idea of free will – man’s ability to improve. (LECTURE; LUTHER: Table Talk, Of Free Will)
4.The European states/kingdoms that embraced the new Protestant traditions were ones that provided an overall climate of freedom for its subjects. (LECTURE â€“ Discuss how German politics (Holy Roman Empire), English politics, and French politics affected the success (or failure) of Protestantism in those regions.)
