Excerpt from The Reformation

The Reformation itself was, moreover, not the beginning but the culminating stage of a great movement, of which the new political life of Europe, the unlocking of strange continents, and the re vival of learning were all equally parts. Religious reform was not the blossoming but the fruitage of a general unfettering of the human mind. But as the mediatval social system attained its highest per fection in the medieval Church, so the break with mediaevalism reached its intensest point of contest in the rejection of the limitations which medieval ecclesiastical authority had imposed and hence the Reformation is the crowning episode in that strug gle for freedom of thought which preceded the struggle for freedom in political action, and which, however imperfectly fought out, was the great con tribution of the fifteenth, sixteenth and seventeenth centuries to human progress.
