Church teachings should be vernacular . I
RIGHT! if it was in our language we'll be able to comprehend more
The bible has ultimate authority so we shall wait and see.
to make this happen catholics shall execute wycliffe & huss

I've created this type printer. Erasmus book spread all around Europe. My new invention has made this book very popular.

We're so excited to see what next for our city and churches.
my purpose is to attempt to get the Roman Catholic Church to stop selling indulgences, or 'get out of hell free' cards
The bible was the ultimate authority on christianity & wanted church teachings to be in the vernacular. Catholic leaders responded to these criticism by executing Wycliffe & Huss.

The "Ninety-Five Theses" spread quickly through Europe causing and incredible controversy and many people were excited about his ideas .
