Le parlement de la Réforme et la naissance de l'Eglise d'Angleterre

Abstract : In order to pressurise the pope in Rome into granting Henry VIII’s divorce from Catherine of Aragon, the King summoned what would be latter known as the Reformation Parliament. Sitting from 1529 to 1536, it fundamentally changed the nature of Parliament and of English government, Henry VIII becoming conscious that he could best effect his will through the assent of Parliament in statute. Under the direction and impetus of the King, it passed laws which transferred religious authority from the Pope to the English Crown, affecting not only religious practice and doctrine – in a more schismatic than protestant way – but also many aspects of national life. Framed by the monarch’s will, the Reformation Parliament can thus be considered as an ambiguous but early step toward the doctrine of sovereignty of King-in-Parliament.
