Jesus Christ was born about 4 B.C. then founded his religion during his 30s which is when it describes his miracles. This would put his teachings around 26 A.D. Jesus's occupation was a carpenter through his young adult years. Jesus was only loved by his followers but everybody else despised him throughout his life. Which created a diverse liking of Jesus at the time. Jesus was disliked because he refused regular tradition that was not part of Gods work. Jesus also called everyone sinners that needed to repent.
The main person was Paul. He had a birthright to the Romans. Followed Christ and then spread his own in his 30's as well. Paul originally triggered the ideology about having faith in Christ is more important than living according to Jewish Law. Paul focused on the work of the Gentiles instead of the Jew he really grew the church after Jesus died.
You would have to pay the catholic church for indulgences to become clean and didn’t like that these acts where unlimited. The church was becoming to worldly with how many divorces they were giving out and they were getting to greedy. The church was more for the business than actually helping people. The only people to get blessings is if they bid the highest. The Catholics didn’t believe in doing good to help you out for the afterlife they believe that donating to their church will help family members reach heaven.

The council of Trent made under the act of Paul the lll. It lasted 18 years it really dealt with the problems at hand and only try to go again the word of Lutheranism. The roman inquisition had a greater affect in protestant areas than similar bodies. This order was to directly counter heresy. This did well in political and military to slow the growth of Protestantism. During the Roman Empire Princes were forced to choose if Catholicism or Protestantism was allowed in their cities.
