How did the Protestant Reformation lead to an increase in literacy?

Answer:

Things were written in vernacular and the utilization of movable text made it easier for the lower class to get access to books.

The invention of the printing press revolutionized how things were printed. The invention of the press greatly influenced the protestant reformation as the Bible was the first piece of literature printed. The protestant reformation fueled literacy because the printing press fueled the reformation.
