Protestant Reformation

(also: The Reformation) The Protestant Reformation is a reform movement that began in the 16th century with Martin Luther in Germany and Huldrych Zwingli and John Calvin in Switzerland. More broadly, the Reformation came to include not only the Lutheran churches, the Reformed or Calvinist traditions (Baptists, Congregationalists, Presbyterians), but also Anabaptists (Mennonites, Amish, Brethren) Anglicans, and Methodists.
