    In this book, Burning to Read by James Simpson, the author's assessment is as follows:

    The Protestant Reformation appears not as a parent of the Enlightenment, but rather as a progenitor of the extreme and intolerant literalism that has seized every major world religion today.

    Did the Reformation spawn intolerance?

    Yes. The RCC's desire to keep people ignorant, biblically and intellectually, unleashed the greatest bloodbath in the name of religion man has ever known. Praise God the good guys won.
