Elizabeth
(r. 1558-1603) [beginning of religious stability in England] When Elizabeth entered the throne, England was torn in half over religion. Catholics wanted a strong Roman Catholic ruler, and some wanted to "purify" the church of all catholic influence. These people are the Puritans; of siding with one or the other, she chose a middle course—she wanted all people to attend the same church so things would stay calm, but she didn't care if they believed what was preached or not; She also required all officials, clergy, and nobles to swear allegiance to her as "the supreme governor of the church of England." She chose the word governor as opposed to "head" to provide a loophole which allowed for English Catholics to remain loyal to her without denying the primacy of the Pope; referring to herself as the head might also be viewed as inappropriate b/c being the "head" of something was traditionally an all male title.
