Verified Solved by verified expert

D. Calvinism and Lutheranism were doctrinally-based movements, while Anglicanism was a politically based movement


The correct answer is D. Calvinism and Lutheranism were churches that emerge out of the Reformation Movement which sought defiance to the corrupt practices of the Catholic Church. They were doctrine-based and leaned away from the theocratic form of Roman Catholicism. 

 

These churches are in contrast in ideology with Anglicanism. As history recounts, the Anglican Church was founded by King Henry VIII as a means to retain political power and wealth through the church without being associated with the weakening Roman Catholic Church. It was also Henry VIII's way to acquire a divorce from his first wife, and marry another woman.
