Catiana McKay; United Methodist Church, United Church of Rogers Park United Methodist Church; Chicago, IL Rev. Satisfies the second institutional requirement in religious and theological studies. One passage in the reader involved the first settlers in the "new world," and another described Leonardo da Vinci as the human with a creative mind that "came closest to the divine touch." There are more than 900 million Protestants worldwide, [3] [13] [14] [16] [202] [203] [204] [205] [n] among approximately 2.4 billion Christians. [13] [206] [207] [208] [o] In 2010, a total of more than 800 million included 300 million in Sub-Saharan Africa, 260 million in the Americas, 140 million in Asia-Pacific region, 100 million in Europe and 2 million in Middle East-North Africa. [3] Protestants account for nearly forty percent of Christians worldwide and more than one tenth of the total human population. [3] Various estimates put the percentage of Protestants in relation to the total number of world's Christians at 33%, [202] 36%, [209] 36.7%, [3] and 40%, [16] while in relation to the world's population at 11.6% [3] and 13%. [205] In European countries which were most profoundly influenced by the Reformation, Protestantism still remains the most practiced religion. [202] These include the Nordic countries and the United Kingdom. [202] [210] In other historical Protestant strongholds such as Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, Latvia, Estonia and Hungary, it remains one of the most popular religions. [211] Although Czech Republic was the site of one of the most significant pre-reformation movements, [212] there are only few Protestant adherents; [213] [214] mainly due to historical reasons like persecution of Protestants by the Catholic Habsburgs, [215] restrictions during the Communist rule, and also the ongoing secularization. [212] Over the last several decades, religious practice has been declining as secularization has increased. [202] [216] According to a 2012 study about Religiosity in the European Union in 2012 by Eurobarometer, Protestants made up 12% of the EU population. [217] According to Pew Research Center, Protestants constituted nearly one fifth (or 17.8%) of the continent's Christian population in 2010. [3] Clarke and Beyer estimate that Protestants constituted 15% of all Europeans in 2009, while Noll claims that less than 12% of them lived in Europe in 2010. [202] [204] Changes in worldwide Protestantism over the last century have been significant. [16] [204] [218] Since 1900, Protestantism has spread rapidly in Africa, Asia, Oceania and Latin America. [24] [205] [218] That caused Protestantism to be called a primarily non-Western religion. [204] [218] Much of the growth has occurred after World War II, when decolonization of Africa and abolition of various restrictions against Protestants in Latin American countries occurred. [205] According to one source, Protestants constituted respectively 2.5%, 2%, 0.5% of Latin Americans, Africans and Asians. [205] In 2000, percentage of Protestants on mentioned continents was 17%, more than 27% and 5.5%, respectively. [205] According to Mark A.
