Sola scriptura (Latin: "by Scripture alone") is the doctrine that all teachings necessary for salvation and concerning faith and life are taught in the Bible clearly enough for the ordinary believer to find them there and understand. It was a pillar of the Protestant Reformation, which rejected Roman Catholicism's claim that Tradition had as much authority over the Church as the Bible.
