Name two ways the Renaissance changed society.

Luther's Teachings
People could win salvation only by faith in God's gift of forgiveness. The Church taught that faith and "good works" were needed for salvation.
All Church teaching should be clearly based on the words of the Bible. Both the pope and Church traditions were false authorities.
All people with faith were equal. Therefore, people didn't need priests to interpret the Bible for them.

Henry VIII
Henry's Problem
In need of a male heir...
Catherine of Aragon
Was the daughter of Ferdinand and Isabella, the joint rulers of Spain. She was a very sought after princess. Catherine had multiple failed pregnancies, but had one child who survived,
Henry VIII turned against Catherine and wanted to divorce her. But, divorce was not allowed in the Catholic Church.
The Pope could
the marriage, IF there was proof that the marriage was never legal. In 1527, Henry asked the Pope to annul the marriage and he declined. Catherine was very popular in England and her home of Spain. The Pope didn't wish to upset her powerful nephew, Charles V.
The political/legal debate over their marriage went on for 6 years! Henry had multiple mistresses during this time, notably Mary Boleyn. Henry sent Catherine and her daughter Mary to separate lonely castles to live.
The Reformation Parliament
Henry secretly married Anne Boleyn (1533) because she was pregnant.
Called into session to pass laws to end the Pope's power in England.
The Reformation Parliament legalized Henry's divorce to Catherine, but this was not okay by the Catholic Church.
Act of Supremacy
- completed Henry's break with the Pope by calling on the people to take an oath recognizing the divorce and accepting Henry as the official head of England's Church.
The Boleyn Sisters:
Anne caught the King's attention but refused to be his mistress. "Queen or nothing!" For a while Anne continued to rise in position and toy with the King's emotions, convincing him to divorce Catherine.
Mary Boleyn was one of Henry's mistresses.
Anne came to court with her, attending to Queen Catherine!
Eventually, Anne becomes pregnant and is secretly married to King Henry. Anne gave birth to Princess
, a girl. She had two miscarriages afterwords and feared her fate, especially since the King had become fond of one of her ladies,
Jane Seymour
Anne never gave birth to a son...and she was not well-liked by the English people.
In 1536, Anne was charged with treason and beheaded at the Tower of London.
Jane Seymour
Henry's True Love
King Henry married Jane within 24 hours of Anne's execution. When she became pregnant, Henry treated her like a goddess, believing she was his first "true wife" and would give him a son. Prince
was born in 1537; Mary became his godmother and Elizabeth played a role in his christening ceremony.

Sadly, Jane died two weeks later. She was the only one of Henry's wives to be buried with him.
Jane Seymour came to court in service of Queen Catherine and then Anne Boleyn.
It is unknown how she felt when she became the object of the King's affection; she either didn't understand her role as a political pawn for her family OR made it seem that way due to fear of her fate as the King's lady.
