The Reformation – The usual term for the religious movement which made its appearance in Western Europe in the sixteenth century, and which, while aiming at an internal renewal of the Church, really led to a splintering of the Church.

Various people wrote about why they had to reform the Catholic church and create new ways of being community. This site gives good links to both Reformation and Catholic reformation information.
