>>522352 At the beginning of his reign, no. He basically let Wolsey do most of the ruling and resigned to playing sport but after his jousting accident he changed a lot. Soon Wolsey was dead and Anne was executed. Thomas Cromwell who acted as Wolsey's replacement didn't have nearly the same amount of power and Henry had his inexperienced hand in everything. Getting slowly more paranoid at the discontent growing amoung the nobility and intellectuals who liked it much better when he just played sport. Lots of people got executed as a result of this. In the end it was tyranny
>>522793 >Soon Wolsey was dead and Anne was executed wew lad, that's the years between Wolsey's death and Anne's execution is one of the most consequential periods in the 16th century. Can't just lump them in one sentence like that. >Thomas Cromwell who acted as Wolsey's replacement didn't have nearly the same amount of power Nah. Wolsey played the traditional rule book of statecraft. Cromwell through it out the window and did some interesting things, most of which didn't last past his death unfortunately. > Lots of people got executed as a result of this. In the end it was tyranny lol wat? who got executed? VIII did some arbitrary shit but there's absolutely no basis for him randomly massacring people.
>>524311 High Church Anglicanism is essentially Catholicism with the Pope replaced with the monarch (functionally by the Archbishop of Canterbury). Low Church Anglicanism on the otherhand, while still the same technical denomination, is handled like any other Protestant church.
>>524311 Your point? Catholicism is great, but the main flaw is all that papal power and shit from Vatican I. Protestant theology and liturgy is shit. I love Anglicans who are basically reformed catholics, though unfortunately it does encompass total calvinist-tier ones as well.
