Henry viii consistent

  1. 1. How far do the religious policies in the years 1529-1540 suggest that Henry’s religious views were consistent? <br />THIS GUY<br />
  2. 2. STRUCTURE (Intro)<br />Intro: Explain the Question. Give a view (agree/disagree). Link to the first argument.<br />Example: During the years between 1529 and 1540, England underwent a series of religious policies that changed primarily due to King Henry VIII’s needs for wealth through the dissolution of the monasteries act of 1536, and a male heir through the break with Rome. I believe that Henry showed signs of consistent views while undergoing these transitions, because he never intended on giving up his Catholic faith. It was to suit Henry’s needs. <br />
  3. 3. STRUCTURE (1st Paragraph)<br />First Paragraph: Pick a side and elaborate on it. Make a point, provide evidence and explain it and link each point together, and link towards the side of the argument. AlsoREFER BACK TO THE QUESTION after every point. (E.g. Henry focused a lot on his own needs. For example, the main reason for his break with Rome, was because Anne Boleyn became pregnant. He could not afford to have a son out of wed-lock, as it would be illegitimate and would not be a worthy heir to the Tudor Bloodline.)<br />
  4. 4. STRUCTURE (Paragraph 2: The other side of the Argument)<br />Now, argue the other side of the argument and elaborate on it. Make a point, provide evidence and explain it and link each point together, and link towards the conclusion. AND LINK IT BACK TO THE QUESTION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<br />
  5. 5. STRUCTURE (Conclusion)<br />Right, once you have your introduction and your argument, you are now in a position to give a judgement. Was he consistent, yes or no? E.g. (I believe that Henry VIII’S views were consistent, as the religious policies were designed to benefit Henry for example the dissolution of the monasteries act was primarily designed so that Henry could gain more money and power even though this was a protestant thing to do Henry still maintained Catholicism as his religion).<br />
  6. 6. CONTENT<br />Right, the key events and dates that connect to the question and should be used include the following:<br />The First Act of Annates<br />This banned payments of annates to Rome. This was the first serious challenge to the pope’s AUTHORITY! This shows Henry taking a more Reformist approach, but he still hasn’t changed his religious views, and has passed an act that has generated him a lot of wealth.<br />
  7. 7. Submission of the Clergy – This meant that the clergy would accept Henry VIII, not the Pope as their lawmaker. <br />Henry would eventually gain Papal Powers and become Head of the Church of England with the Act in Restraint of Appeals to Rome. <br />These two acts would give the King power on par with the Pope in his country, but he hasn’t changed his beliefs, and has only defied the Pope to give himself the power to annul his marriage with Catherine of Aragon.<br />
