Church of England The Thirty-Nine Articles form the basic doctrinal beliefs of the Church of England.
During the reigns of Henry VIII and Edward VI, Thomas Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury, drafted several statements of faith for adoption by the newly-Protestant Church of England. When Elizabeth I returned England to Protestantism after the reign of Queen Mary, a new version was commissioned, based on Cranmer's work.
Originally written in Latin in 1563, the Thirty-Nine Articles were translated into English and adopted by Parliament in 1571.
Church of England A book of prayers, published in 1559 that would have been used by Queen Elizabeth. She was a Protestant at a time when many people in her country were Catholic. She was a stout religious reformer. Her older sister, Mary, a zealous Catholic, had been the cause of hundreds of Protestant deaths in her attempts to eradicate the "heretics" and reestablish England's relationship with the Vatican. When Elizabeth ascended to the throne, she resurrected the Church of England that her father, Henry VIII, began. The book contains a wonderful introduction that helps acquaint the reader with the events leading up to the time this prayer book was in use.
