Elizabethan Confessional State - Early Modern England - Keith E Wrightson - Lecture 10 of 25 - Video-lecture

Video-lecture, United Kingdom History

Description: Professor Wrightson discusses the Elizabethan settlement of religion and the manner in which it was defended from both 'Papist' and 'Puritan' opponents. The settlement of religion achieved in 1559 (and enforced through the Act of Uniformity) restored the royal supremacy, but was in some respects deliberately ambiguous, combining moderately Protestant doctrine with traditional forms of worship and church government.
