The Renaissance: Ideals, Culture and Religion
The Renaissance in the North: Propagation in Germany in the years 1515-1550. To what extent did the reform of Martin Luther cause changes in the sacred German Roman Empire in the period of 1515-1550? The main objective of this work is to analyze and evaluate the causes of rebirth with the work of Martin Luther in the Holy Roman Empire, taking into account the ideal causes of the reform and the spread in the mandate of Emperor Carlos V, in addition to aWar of religion between Catholics and Protestants Lotarians directed by Carlos V and German princes throughout the empire.
For the analysis of the following reason, the study of primary and secondary sources will be forced, in which characters and historians analyze and describe these events that occurred in Germany. It should be stressed that at least 10 sources will be used above. As primary sources, Martin Luther’s 95 thesis will be analyzed in García Fuentes about the battle of Mühlberg. In both sources it is possible to observe the collision between the reform, caused by Luther as leader of that movement and Catholicism, with Carlos V in favor of the papacy in Europe.
Therefore, they serve us to evaluate the ideal and war conflicts that were faced by the Lutheran reform in the Holy Roman Empire German. The first source is a demand produced at the University of Wittenberg and hung on the door of the University Church, in 1517. The purpose of this document was to demonstrate the injustices of the Church to the collection of indulgences and he asked for a new way of seeing religion by not thinking of destiny for only faith and works but that the idea comes out in the form of faith, even when it was known that Luther was part of the wealthy families of the Holy Roman Empire.
And that explains his inconstancy or his lack of support to the Christian Church that is worth knowing that his entry as a friar was more for a promise than for the pleasure of them. The value of this text is that it influences any political and religious field and that is what basically had the biggest problem with Emperor Carlos V that he could not tolerate the simple fact that the Church was blamed as one of the problemsof integrity and this was the creation of the new Church that was forced to escape from Christianity, but that took great value for the new Protestant reform.
As a limitation of the text, it is taken into account that the Church banished Martin Luther when it was discovered that it was published the 95 thesis and had to retire from the sacred Roman Empire, however it did not do it because the German princes did not allow himget out of the empire. The second source is a chronicle of the author José María García Fuentes who was written by a historian from the University of Granada in 1971 and narrates all the causes of the confrontation of the battle between Catholics and Protestants. He specified that the battle of such an event was a military field of Carlos V and the confrontation of the Protestants under the command of the German princes.
Under the support of the historical knowledge of the bust capabilities to carry out actions that cope with different aspects and manifest themselves in the duty of that war. This source has a narrative about the author’s characteristics and also has the same data from Luis de Ávila himself as the official chronicler of Emperor Carlos V and actively participated in the battle of Mühlberg. As a limitation of the historian, when belonging to a more contemporary era and thus it is based on these aspects, it could have been manipulated each time in great threats to obtain information.
Luther in the convent as monk after a promise that manifests itself as the beginning of the communion of Luther’s different works and finally when there was the Luther case hung their so -called 95 thesis that were created and inspired by the contradiction of the collection of indulgences andstipulating a new way of see. It should be noted that Luther had as a studious life and for a catastrophe of life, he went through his great misfortune although not quite bad because he had to promise to become a monk if he saved his life that time.
Luther had to fulfill it and that was how he became monk on July 16, 1505. Subsequently to all fields an interconnection of religiosity and the policy that were both dominated the Holy Empire is established. In addition, the German princes did not agree with the taking of the power of Carlos I of Spain because he came to power with scamEmperor Carlos V began his great governance chaos.
