Reflection Questions
  • In what ways did Henry VIII merely replicate the preexisting temporal and ecclesiastical order? In what ways did he introduce revolutionary innovations? In what ways did he lay the groundwork for true reformation of the church?

  • Is the English Reformation best seen as a movement imposed and guided from above? Or is it better seen as an opportunistic attempt to harness a social movement already far beyond Henry VIII’s or his successors’ abilities to restrain or control? Defend your answer.
