England was slow to join the Reformation but when the Pope refused to grant King Henry VIII a divorce (or more accurately an annulment) Henry withdrew England from the Roman Catholic Church.
This week we will study the English Reformation & the Catholic Counter-Reformation and we will complete our study of the Renaissance & the Reformation with a unit test after the Labor Day break.
The video below is a clip from the BBC show Horrible Histories. A character is portraying Henry VIII as he sings about his wives. You will be given a bonus on your Unit Exam in which you list Henry’s wives and their fates. This song will help you remember.
