About the Book Protestantism has more than 900 million adherents worldwide, and originated in the Reformation, which was a movement against what were perceived to be errors in the Roman Catholic Church. Protestants uniformly reject the Roman Catholic doctrine of papal supremacy and sacraments, however disagree among themselves about some matters, such as the actual presence of Christ in the Eucharist. Protestantism emphasizes the priesthood of all of its believers, holds that faith alone provides justification (sola fide) rather than good works, and belives in that the highest authority resides in the Bible alone, rather than with sacred tradition.Also in this Book The history of Christianity concerns the Christian religion, with its various denominations, from the life of Jesus Christ in the 1st century to the present. Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Christianity spread to all of Europe in the Middle Ages, and since the Renaissance, has expanded throughout the world and become the world's largest religion (with over 2 billion faithful). At first persecuted, but later embraced by the Roman Empire, the East-West Schism, or Great Schism of 1054, separated the Church into Western (Latin) and Eastern (Greek) branches, i.e., Western Catholicism (based on Rome) and Eastern Orthodoxy (based on Constantinople). The rise of Islam resulted in a number of Crusades fought by Christian Armies from Europe, whose aim was to re-capture and hold Jerusalem. In 1453, Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Empire, and Christianity was almost completely removed from the territory that now comprises Turkey. The three most important traditions that emerged from the Protestant Reformation (1521-1610) were the Lutheran, Reformed (Calvinist, Presbyterian, etc.), and Anglican traditions.And in this Book Christian theology is the theology of Christian belief and practice, the study of which concentrates on the texts of the Old and New Testaments, and on Christian tradition. Christian theologians utilize biblical exegesis, rational analysis and argument in their studies. The sub-discipline of Systematic theology formulates an orderly, rational and coherent account of Christian faith and beliefs drawing on the foundational sacred texts of Christianity. Over the centuries Christian theology has permeated and influenced much of Western culture, especially in pre-modern Europe.About us Leopold Classic Library has the goal of making available to readers the classic books that have been out of print for decades.
