*Biblically speaking, the Protestant movement was actually an acknowledgment of the Reformation (Heb. 9:10) rather than the Reformation itself (See article "Was the Protestant Movement. . . ?"). The word "institute," as used here, refers to "a usually brief intensive course of instruction on selected topics relating to a particular field" (Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, Tenth Edition).
