Hello all! I am in the process of writing a research paper on the Protestant Reformation - particularly answering 2 questions:
- Did Martin Luther truly intend to start a completely different church apart from the Catholic Church as we know it today to be Protestantism or did he just look for reform (which I realize was needed in certain areas)?
- Was his schism at some point also politically driven?
What I was looking for are good resources concerning the reformation that I could use in my paper. I already have the “Stripping of the Altars” by Eamon Duffy concerning the effects of the Reformation in England. Would anyone know about possibly a good resource on the debate at Leipzig? Any other resources (don’t have to be books)?
P.S. It would definitely and most obviously be better if they were more historical writings rather than opinion.
