I would like to ask if it would have been possible with out the prior development of the Enlightenment? For instance, if some of the main issues that troubled Martin Luther (such as the Catholic Church's practice of requiring "tributes" for pray and/or forgiveness), were not related to new ways of thinking illustrated within the Enlightenment, would have he created the Ninety-Five thesis? Would have it had the same outcome? Why or why not and in what ways is that important?
