      Early in the 1500s much of Europe was divided over religion.
      The king of England, Henry VIII, broke away from the Roman Catholic Church and set up another Christian church called the Church of England.
      The members of the church of England were called Protestants because they had protested against practices of the Catholic church.
      Protestants beliefs and practices were different from those of other Christian religions
