However, the reformation should not have taken place with violence. The revolts and robbing is a reason why the reformation should have been prevented and stopped. The good people and clergy should have settled their problems with communication, not uproar and commotion. Also, princes used Luther’s ideas for their own personal good to gain power and wealth. Luther’s teachings were used to seize property, not bring more faith to the people. The reformation also split up the religion into Protestants and Catholic. To this very day, they are still split up and segregated from one another. I think the reformation was good and bad for all the above reasons but it should be put into account that any problems would be better off settled with peace and negotiation.
