Transcript of Elizabethan Era
Elizabethan Catholics believed that Church Services and the Bible should be in Latin, as it had been for 1000 years
Did the people of the Elizabethan Era have a choice in religion?
Which Religion was the most popular?
Reigning monarchs dictated their "Favored" religion.
In the 1500's more than 20 Protestant books were dedicated to Queen Elizabeth. They did this so that she would grow into the role as a Protestant Queen. (pg.56)

Elizabethan Protestants believed that Church Services and the Bible should be in the language of the people so that the ordinary people could understand them
When it came to crunch Queen Elizabeth had to play the Protestant role, even though she had not chosen it. (pg.57)

The two major religions in Elizabethan England were the Catholic and Protestant religions. The convictions and beliefs in these different religions were so strong that they led to the executions of many adherents to both of these Elizabethan religions.
Elizabethan Catholics firmly believed that Priests were the link between God and the people and that the Pope was ordained by God
Elizabethan Protestants believed that people could find God without a priest or a Pope and that Ministers were ordinary people who should lead normal lives
Elizabethan Catholics believed that Priests and the Pope were able to forgive sins, but at a price. Gifts, or indulgences, were given to the church
Elizabethan Protestants believed that only God could forgive sins
Elizabethan Catholics believed that Churches celebrate God and elaborately decorated with statues and shrines
Elizabethan Protestants believed that Churches should be plain allowing the people to concentrate on the sermons
Schools taught the religion that was decreed by the Queen or King at the time.
If you chose to not be in the decreed religion you put your self in great danger. Ex. Imprisonment, Torture, Execution, Etc.
Being a Catholic is not a crime, but there is a fine for not conforming to the established religion; that is, for not going to church on Sunday. And every church is a protestant church.
Everyone is required to attend a church service once a month.
