With the majority of reformation leaders being in positions of power, and wealth their message was easily heard and it only took hanging up their theories on churches doors to get put on the popes most wanted list however with the poorer class it took more than a letter to a pope to be taken serious. Forms of radical reform was credited to Thomas Muntzer and Karlstadt, in order to gain support for the reform of the common man these two individuals ushered in new arguments against the Church. The basis of their argument against the Church was people were born in the image of Christ and didn’t need to be baptized as children, and that they were children of Christ not Adam.

    Robert Cormier’s We All Fall Down was published in 1991 but occurs at an earlier time period in the towns of Burnside and Wickburg.

    The centralized theme of the novel is the evil of mankind. In the novel, evil is an entity that can possess people against their will – like a spirit.
