Northern Renaissance humanism -reform of the Catholic Church Desiderius Erasmus- Best known of all Christian Humanists called his view of religion "the philosophy of Christ" Wrote The Praise of Folly in 1509 "Erasmus laid the egg that Luther hatched."

3 Religion on the Eve of the Reformation Corruption in the Catholic Church Renaissance popes- failed to meet the Church's spiritual needs Julius II, "warrior pope" Many church officials were concerned about money & used church offices to advance their careers and their wealth Salvation- acceptance into Heaven Collections of relics grew more popular as a means to salvation Indulgence- release from all or part of punishment for sin by Catholic Church



6 Martin Luther Was a monk and a professor at the University of Wittenberg (Germany) Catholic teaching had stressed that both faith and good works were needed to gain personal salvation. Luther believed in justification Justification became the main lesson of the Protestant Reformation Bible- became the only source of religious truth
