A Level


10m 40s
Everyone in Europe knows the English are proud of their freedoms and independence, and now your queen has married a foreigner and he calls himself your king. You see friends and neighbours burnt at the stake for his religion. Is it the end of England? How popular was Mary’s restoration of Catholicism? Reaction to accession, legislation, church lands, burnings, exiles, literature and reform. Glyn considers the key concept of 'Counter-Reformation'.
