What really caused the Protestant Reformation?

“European Christianity had been in serious decline since before the Protestant Reformation. The real factors causing the Protestant Reformation had nothing to do with religion.” Discuss if you agree or disagree with this statement. Both Zwingli and Luther were prominent figures in the Protestant Reformation, but each had different interpretations of key religious dogmas. Notice the interaction between the two in the Debate document. In your opinion, was it possible for a compromise or reconciliation to have occurred between them, or between the Reformers and the Catholic Church?
