Luther Hall in Wittenberg. Many reformers, including Robert Barnes met with Luther here during the Reformation.
The beginning of the English Reformation is often considered 1534 when King Henry VIII declared himself to be the supreme head of the church in England. However, as early as 1512 John Colet was attacking clergy and prelates alike. Simon Fish’s *Supplication for Beggars*, published in 1529 was highly critical of the abuse of indulgences. William Tracy’s will, which was circulated around 1530 caused quite a stir because of its evangelical flavor.
