History, Politics & Society

'History, Politics and Society' deals with the affairs of human beings. The categories overlap to a degree: 'History' describes changes in those affairs, and encompasses the other two; 'Politics' is about how people govern themselves; and 'Society' is about how people organize and conduct their lives. Questions here range from ancient history to history-in-the-making, political views to decisions of lawmakers, and present and past societies and how people relate to each other within their societies.

What are the differences between England before the 1530s and after 1535.?

User Avatar
The guy above is a nerd. Papal authority greatly changed between 1530 and 1535. For example, Henry VIII set measures into place that restricted papal authority in England. Also, church funds from England could no longer be sent to Rome. The major change took place in 1534 when Henry VIII, as a result of the Act of Supremacy, became head of the Church of England. Ultimately, before the 1530's the church had great, nearly unchecked power. Afterwards, the church had restricted power, and the Church of England was created.
