The Reformation Simplified SERIES: 3 Reformation Phases

Three different Reformations were carried out based on fundamentally different principles:
the Continental Reformation,
the English Reformation,
and the Counter-Reformation.


The Continental Reformation destroyed the existing Church
and set up a new society in its place.
[Except in Sweden where the Reformation was in many ways like the English Reformation.]


The English Reformation made the national church independent of Rome
and gave the Crown the power to make reforms.


The Counter-Reformation cleansed and strengthened the Papacy
and by the power of the Pope removed practical abuses
but retained and carried further the doctrinal developments against which the Reformers had protested.

CLAUDE BEAUFORT MOSS
And they that understand among the people shall instruct many:
yet they shall fall by the sword, and by flame,
by captivity, and by spoil, many days.
Daniel 11:33
