Reformation and the Gospel--Matthew Barrett writes an extended summary of events involved with the Reformation, centering on the doctrine of justification by faith alone, which cam to be a central tenet of the Reformation.
Justin Taylor's resources--Justin Taylor has assembled numerous resources for people who want to learn more about the Reformation. He highlights the movie, "Luther", which is a good movie that will help you to understand what happened during the Reformation and what Luther's part was in it.
Reformer Biographies--Steven Lawson, at the Ligonier ministries site, has assembled biographies of many of the early reformers including: Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli, William Tyndale, Heinrich Bullinger, and John Calvin. Bob Kellemen at RPM Ministries has also assembled some worthwhile biographical information.
If you are really feeling ambitious, track down some of the longer pieces from these authors. Read Martin Luther's Commentary on Galatians, or delve into Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion.
