Protestantism and Authority

It is easier to say who Protestants are than what Protestantism is. The term 'Protestant' was applied historically to persons belonging to one of several rival European movements of thought and practice with one thing at least in common: they all preached or assumed that it was possible—and indeed desirable—for true followers of Christ to abandon their traditional allegiance to the Bishops of Rome as successors to St. Peter.

'nuff said.
