From the Paper:

"The medieval church entered into a different phase and experienced a lot of changes in the 16th century. This change was due since the 15th century. The Pentecostal church is said to have been responsible to conserve the three great spiritual reforms, Lutheran, Wesleyan and Pentecostal. All these revival movements were helpful to bring back to light the various Christian experiences that had disappeared since the early times of the church. This reformation started with the Lutheran Reformation of the sixteenth century. Martin Luther became one of the most famous German Augustinians. In 1506, he joined the Augustinian community in the German town of Erfurt and he also took his first vows there."
