Henry's most important minister was the ordained Catholic priest, Thomas Wolsey, who  entered into the royal service in the summer of 1509. Wolsey became Archbishop of  York in late 1514, was created a cardinal of the Church the following November, and  replaced William Warham, Archbishop of Canterbury, as Lord Chancellor of the realm in  December 1515. Wolsey achieved singular stature in these offices; since Henry was not  so interested in administration as his minister, Wolsey took over many of the duties of  kingship. While Wolsey was busy overseeing England's finances and diplomatic  relations with other European powers, King Henry often spent his days on horseback,  enjoying himself with the hunt and other sports. He tended to exasperate his  secretaries, who had to make excuses for him when he declined to read dispatches or to  engage in other administrative activities.

    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.
