The correct answer to this question is Protestant Reformation, which was a 16th century Western Christianity movement. This movement occurred in Europe. The Protestant Reformation started in 1517 with Martin Luther's "Ninety-Five Theses", which were a list of propositions that protested the selling of indulgences. There were many causes to this movement. The religious cause was due to problems with authorities of the church.

The economic and social cause was due to advances in technology and the way revenue was being recieved by the church. Lastly, the political cause was due to differences in foreign affairs and challenges with authority figures.
