This chapter discusses the historical events that served as the prelude to the Reformation. It then explored the impacts of the Black Death plague in Europe, and its influence in the fifteenth century thinking and economics. It also discusses the power of Conciliarism in the fifteenth century, across Europe. Conciliarism is the testament of the papal power in the political field of Europe, as it encroached even beyond the royal supremacy in most kingdoms in Europe.
