January 17, 2007 History 200 – Lecture #2 Henry’s Reformation 1529: Henry asked the Pope in Rome to grant him a divorce from Catherine but he denies Henry the right to divorce. Henry calls Parliament together and under his pushing Parliament, he converts England from a Catholic nation to a Protestant nation. The Pope is gone; Henry himself becomes head of England. Once he establishes the Church of England he grants himself a divorce. Divorced, beheaded, and died. Divorced, beheaded, and survived. Five consequences of Henry’s Reformation 1. Henry’s new wife Ann gave him a daughter, Elizabeth (who found colonies in the New World) 2. Further legitimacy to the Parliament as a political power 3. By divorcing Catherine (the daughter of Catholic Spanish parents), essentially 60 years of warfare with Spain (1530’s-1588). Spain remains Catholic. 1588: Spain launches 130 ships over England who pulls its navy together and with the help of storms, the Spanish was defeated.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
