      • henry viii was still very catholic

          • eg. act for the advancement of true religion 1543 (restricted readings of bible)
    • regency council for edward
      • indicated a protestant future for england
      • encouraged protestantism
    • reduces power of catholic church through parliament acts
    • dissolution of the monasteries removed catholic symbols
    • appointed ministers who had a wider agenda, although henry just broke with rome so his marriage could be annulled
