The Protestant Reformation was the 16th century movement which led to the Protestant churches separating from the Roman Catholic Church. It is usually said to have started when Martin Luther nailed his 95 Theses to the door of a church in Wittenburg Germany. Protestants rejected what they perceived as false doctrines and malpractices within the Roman Catholic Church. These included the teaching and sale of indulgences, the buying and selling of church positions and the systemic corruption, which even reached to the position of the Pope, devotion to Mary and the saints rather than true Christianity which they saw as a matter of inward devotion to faith and God rather than outward symbols of ceremony and ritual, rejection of the authority of the Pope because they believed the only true authority to be the Bible which Protestants made available to all by publication of the Bible in the common language and universal education. The mandatory celibacy of the [[clergy], (as well as monasticism) were also rejected. During the reformation many Martyrs to the Protestant Faith were killed by Roman Catholics.
