Show synopsis The Reformation Parliament, which sat in seven sessions between 1529 and 1536 and derived its name from being the Parliament which ushered in the Reformation in the Church of England, was one of the most important assemblies ever to meet in England. Professor Lehmberg gives a full analysis of the composition and attendance of both Houses of Parliament and of the Convocation of the Province of Canterbury which sat simultaneously with Parliament. His main concern in this book, however, is with the activities of Parliament rather than with an analysis of its composition. He examines the attitudes and achievements of Parliament session by session and shows the precise part played by both Houses in the passing of the measures which led to the establishment of the independence of the Anglican Church and the annulment of the marriage of Henry VIII and Catherine of Aragon.
