FAITH, FIRE AND REBELLION: DISSOLUTION & REFORMATION
February 14th at 18:30 to February 16th at 13:30
When Henry VIII, wanting a new wife/male heir, found his divorce foundering on a rock of papal intransigence, he resolved to dissolve the monasteries and adopt Anne Boleyn’s Protestantism. Henry veered between Rome & Canterbury, and full reformation wasn’t achieved until the reign of daughter Elizabeth. The ‘stripping the altars’ proved traumatic, especially Northwards, where a major rebellion, the Pilgrimage of Grace, came very close to toppling the Tudors.
