In any case, what I have to say about the empirical impact of the Lutheran Reformation and its enormously variegated Protestant progeny (Calvinist, Anabaptist, Anglican) would be no different if I were a Buddhist or an atheist. Under the burden of the day's work and duties it is easy to forget that the mills of God grind slowly. English, too, can be a war front: do we teach some Dead White Male, such as that racist, sexist, anti-Semite Shakespeare, or Maya Angelou?

Even the chaplain of Charles V., Alfonso de Virves, had to pay tribute to the intolerant tribunal. The Presbyterian Church was predominantly influenced by French-Swiss theologian John Calvin and later by Scottish theologian John Knox. On one hand, one had to have confidence in one’s salvation. He viewed the papists as usurpers who had taken over the Catholic church and corrupted it. However, it is certain that both languages derived their word from the Latin: protestantem, meaning "one who publicly declares/protests", which refers to the letter of protestation by Lutheran princes against the decision of the Diet of Speyer in 1529, which reaffirmed the edict of the Diet of Worms in 1521, banning Martin Luther's 95 theses of protest against some beliefs and practices of the early 16th century Catholic Church.
