The most significant political motions in Henry's break with Rome were, first, the  passage through the House of Commons of the Supplication against the Ordinaries, or  the Submission of the Clergy in 1532, and, second, the March 1533 restraint of all legal  appeals to Rome. The Commons' Supplication, received enthusiastically by Henry,  overthrew the constitutional independence of the Church and described the king as the  "supreme legislator" in the realm. The Act of Appeals, largely the work of Cromwell,  stated the following in its preamble: "This realm of England is an Empire, and so hath  been accepted in the world, governed by one Supreme Head and King having the  dignity and royal estate of the imperial Crown of the same." In other words, England,  along with her king, was absolutely independent and owed no allegiance to any other  figure or body, religious or political, on earth.

    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.
