Online: Torture and Treason at Fulham Palace – London Luminaries

4 July @ 7:00 pm8:00 pm BST

Henry VIII’s split from Rome triggered an unprecedented period of religious turbulence leading to the dissolution of the monasteries. This talk will explain the impact it had on the Bishops of London, whose residence was Fulham Palace.

This lecture will focus upon the religious turbulence of the 16 century and the impact this had upon the Church and the Bishops of London. It was during this period that King Henry VIII split from Rome. Dissatisfied with the Catholic Church in his attempts to divorce Katherine of Aragon, the nation witnessed a shift towards anti-clericalism with the perceived corruption of the Church eventually leading to the dissolution of the monasteries.

Pope Clement VII had made the mistake of appointing Thomas Cranmer as Archbishop of Canterbury who annulled Henry’s marriage to Katherine. Henry was succeeded by his son, Edward VI whose support of Protestantism led to widescale changes within the Church.
