History

During the Reformation period, did political concerns primarily serve religious needs, or was religious ideology primarily an instrument of political practicalities?

Either way, it's a huge generalization. I think it depends on the individuals you want to refer to and the countries they lived in.

Martin Luther
Henry VIII
John Calvin
and others
