Charles I's religious policy, 1625-1629

HideShow resource information

Charles' lack of communication with the Political Nation led to conspiracy theories at Court

  • Outsiders believed the Court was controlled by Catholics and Arminians
  • Charles believed Puritans in Parliament were trying to attack him 

Charles clearly sided with the Arminians because:

  • Arminians stressed order, obedience and hierarchy within the Church, as well as the need for obedience to the monarch, which appealed to Charles

Charles' sympathy for Arminians created tensions with Parliament

  • Most MPs were anti-Catholic
