Transcript of Religious Views of the Elizabethan Era

The two dominant religions of Elizabethan England were Catholicism and Protestantism. While many Elizabethan Catholics believed they could rid themselves of sin by bribing their church with gifts, Elizabethan Protestants believed that only God could forgive their sins. While Catholics believed in celebrating God with detailed statues and shrines, Protestants believed that churches should be plainly decorated in order to create a more focused atmosphere of worship.

St. James's Church of England Elizabeth's tolerance of Roman Catholicism began to weaken as assassination plots were uncovered from the hands of Roman Catholics seeking to reestablish a Roman Catholic queen.

Elizabeth's Tolerance of Roman Catholicism Catholic vs. Protestant Reformations The Protestant Reformation was followed by a Catholic Counter-Reformation. Between 1545 and 1563, the Council of Trent responded to the Protestant changes by redefining their doctrines to reform some abuses from the church. The Council of Trent This Catholic Reformation denounced all the Protestant "heresies", or unorthodox beliefs, and set about training a new generation of priests to obliterate them. England became one of the main targets of "missionary" priests, or priests who helped spread Catholic beliefs.
Catholicism & Roman Catholicism in Elizabethan England (1570-1588) Pope Pius V The inundation of new missionary priests into England, the revolt of the Northern Earls, and the deposition of Elizabeth by Pope Pius V all helped provoke the government into harsher measures against Catholics. Saint Bartholomew's Day Massacre
During the Saint Bartholomew's Day Massacre, thousands of English Protestants were killed by French Catholics, which only worsened Catholic-Protestant relations. Works Cited
