THE REFORMATION IN ENGLAND
Did the Reformation in Tudor England Produce a Protestant Church? This session examines changes in politics, theology, and piety that transformed the Church during the tumultuous reigns of four 16th-century monarchs. The last Tudor, Elizabeth I, managed an uneasy balance between Church reformists and traditionalists. What were the essential features of the Church of England at the end of her long reign?

The Anglo Catholic Response
Protestant and Catholic Legacies in the Post-Reformation English Church. In the 17th century, tensions between reformists and traditionalists grew to a breaking point leading to Civil War, the rejection and later restoration of monarchy and bishops, and the emergence of Protestant dissenting denominations outside the established Church of England which itself had both Evangelical and Catholic, Low Church, and High Church factions. this session explores the implications of these trends for understanding what in the 19th century came to be known as Anglicanism.
