The purpose of this paper is to show how and why England broke with the Roman Church. That this break was unique and did not follow the pattern of revolts of other states is perhaps due to the role played by Henry VIII. He was the dominant character during the early phase of the English Reformation and therefore his notions are of paramount importance to the analysis of this period of English history.
