Tomorrow, October 31st, 2017, is the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. In the last 1700 years, the reformation had initially attempted to reform the wayward Roman Catholic Church but was unsuccessful at moving the leviathan from its perch, and the movement eventually moved to founding alternatives. While Martin Luther is considered the father of the movement, it is important to remember that there are others who preceded him and many others who followed him that had even greater impact on the formation of western thinking. John Calvin, the Puritans, the Huguenots, and the Presbyterians all played prominently in the settlement of America and in the molding of colonial beliefs and values.
Still, like all great revivals, the reformation had its share of problems as well. Considering the magnitude of effect that the reformation had on the future of the entire world, it is an event well worth remembering. The Price of Liberty Blog has an excellent writeup on both the positive and negative effects  of this momentous event.
