I'm still new here and figuring out what goes where. There is some good history in this that seems like it would fit better on http://www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reformation and the Cunnan article could work to make the history relevant to SCA folks. How does this affect someone's persona? Which contries were predominantly on which side? What were the consequences of being on the "wrong" side? How would this affect your costume? (E.g., did it affect the wearing of the rosary? etc.) ~ [[User:JakeVortex|JakeVortex]] 06:27, 5 Nov 2003 (EST)

I wrote the article as SCA Deep Background - this is the kind of stuff real people in period knew about. Maybe not the precise details, but if you grew up in a 14th C northern Italian city, you know about Henry IV and Innocent III, becuase the political factions in your town (Guelph and Ghibelline) come from that period.

What I'm trying to get away from is a history that says 'Luther nailed up the 95 theses in Wittenburg. There were some wars. Some countries became Protestant. Some didnt'. I want to be able to tell a story about 'Why did Protestantism take the form it did, where it did, and when it did' in a way I'm happy with.

Nice work, Anton. I've made a couple of changes, including adding the "Rule of Victor", but I've got a couple of other suggestions -

  • A lot of it is better suited to articles like Papacy, Roman Catholic Church, and Investiture dispute. Reformation should really be an outline of the Reformation.
  • Wiki articles are designed to be edited by everyone- it's best to keep personal pronouns, names and the like out of Cunnan articles.
  • Is it Lollardry or Lollardism? I've always thought Lollardry = the tenets of Lollards, Lollardism = practice of Lollardry.
