Particular emphasis will be placed on the works of Martin Luther and John Calvin, and subsequently their similarity to the reforms of the 20th and 21st century conservative evangelicals. First, it will address the phenomena of the initial Protestant Reformation and eventual conservative evangelical movements. Secondly, there will be a discussion of the theological similarities of the two groups. Thirdly, there will be a comparison of their political positions. Finally, there will be discussion of the impacts of such a correlation.
