protestant means to protest the truth of holy scripture, and to reject all doctrines not based on the teachings of the bible (gods word revealed to man).
puritans were people who wanted to ''purify'' the church of 'popish' doctrines. henry V111 although he had a dispute with the pope was never a protestant. luther was a reformer of the papacy but he never denied the mass and ergo was never 100% protestant.
protestants reject doctrines such as the papacy, the priesthood, the 'petrine' (rock) theory, mary worship, wafer worship (the mass/transubstantiation), genuflection, crucifixes, candles, scapulars, holy water, indulgences, purgatory, etc. etc. because they are inventions of man and are not based on the bible.

Protestant means a group of christians who are neither catholic or orthodox.Today they number around 800 million,compared to 1.2billion catholics and 200 million orthodox.General uniting feature of this group which seperate them from both catholicism and orthodox church is that they reject the practice of 'intercession of saints'.

Protestant revolution of 16th century was not the origin of protestantism as catholics try to claim.The first protestant church was the apostolic church. (the church depicted in new testament do not pray to "saints" or use statues\images in prayer worship.) Thus it was protestant in essence.
catholics massacred many true christian groups like manichaens.paulicians,bogomils,waldensians,cathars who showed boldeness to protest against their idolatrous practice of 'intercession of saints',before the coming of protestant revolution.
