Edward VI and the Imposition of Protestantism
You want to be true to your Prince and your God. But you look at the politicians surrounding the young king and see how they use religion just to bolster their own position. There´s little consolation to be found in your village church, as men come down from London and make you to take down the images of your favourite saints and tell you you can´t even pray for your dead relatives any more. Are you going to support the Reformation or do everything you could to stop it from gaining hold? How far did England become protestant under Edward VI? This podcast examines legal changes, popular reaction, unrest including the Western rebellion and asks the question: Do “countries” change religion? Glyn's key concept is the 'Politics of Exclusion'.
