When Telemachus had his speech his words had all his father’s wisdom of him. It was easy to spot the breed of a man whom Zeus has marked for joy in birth of his father Odysseus. Noticing how Telemachus is looking more like his father and the way he act resembles to Odysseus. Finally, Telemachus is now in manhood and not boyhood any longer was proof of him being mature for his age. His maturation was confronting the suitors, setting sail, and his physical appearance of being like his father.
Does Mary I deserve the title of Bloody Mary? Mary I of Scotland was the first child of King Henry VIII. Her mother was Catherine of Aragon of Spain, a religious catholic. Mary, too, was brought up as a catholic. However, when it seemed unlikely that Catherine would be able to produce a male heir for Henry, he wanted a divorce.
Mary came to the throne in 1553 only after crushing a plot by the leaders of the Protestant elite to place her cousin, Lady Jane Grey, on the throne, instead of her. She had promised mercy to many of the rebellion's leaders, but in 1554 there were two more disturbances against her rule. They were orchestrated by Jane Grey's father, the marquis of Dorset, and Sir Thomas Wyatt, son of a family with strong emotional ties to the Boleyns (and, thus, Elizabeth, Mary's Protestant half-sister.) This showed that there was strong Protestant sympathies against Mary and that leniency would not prevent them from rising up against her again. Thus, political brutality was called for.
Henry VIII is often remembered as the English monarch who broke with the Roman Church. However, Henry was only attracted to Protestant doctrine in a limited way, as the years 1530-1547 demonstrate. Between the years 1530-1534, Henry tried to secure the Pope's permission to divorce Catherine of Aragon, by threatening first the English clergy and then the Pope's powers in England. When the Pope still did not grant the divorce, Henry undertook the most extreme of measures, claiming jurisdiction over the English Church for himself. The Act of Royal Supremacy of 1534 stated that the Crown was reclaiming powers that it had always possessed; powers that Rome had usurped during the previous four hundred years - a fact which Henry and his advisors firmly believed.
Although William was born in Germany, he inherited his thrown in the Netherlands where he led the Dutch revolt against the Spanish crown. William had always believed in free practice of religion and pitied religious movements such as the Calvinist movements in France and the Netherlands (heritage-history). William’s beliefs about religious freedom led him to defeat the Catholic forces under the control of Louis XIV of France. Because of this defeat, the Catholics were driven out of the Dutch Republic (bbc.co.uk). Many Calvinist refugees fled to Holland and Zealand from other provinces because these countries were religiously tolerant.
The idea shown in source 7 of Henry not being able to fully separate himself from his catholic beliefs is further back up by the evidence found in source 8. Although we have to be aware of the fact that source 8 was written by Bishop Tunstall to Reginald Pole in 1536, which means that it may be slightly biased towards Catholicism. The source states that Henry wishes to remain a part of the “unity of Christ’s Catholic Church”. Which tells us that Protestantism is not making enough progress in England as to convince the King, yet it is still making gains. Also in the source, Henry’s title of “Supreme Head” is mentioned.

Luther and Henry VIII’s motives for reform sprung from entirely different sources. Luther disagreed with the Catholic church over the doctrine that allowed the selling of indulgences to lay people. After study of the Scriptures, Luther decided that salvation was achieved not by indulgences or even good works, but only by faith alone. Henry VIII’s reasons for his break with the church came from his desire to divorce his wife at the time, Catherine, and marry Anne Boleyn. He asked Pope Clement VII to announce that the king’s previous marriage to Catherine of Aragon was invalid.
Why do we need a king that’s so selfish and disrespectful to rule our country? Religious conflicts permeated Charles’s reign. He married a Catholic princess over the objection of our parliament and public opinion. He also allied himself with controversial religious figures like Duke of Buckingham and Archbishop Laud. As his subjects, we think that this brought our Church of England too close to Roman Catholic.
Firstly, many rulers believed in religious toleration. King Henry IV of France converted to Catholicism after becoming king and he issued the Edict of Nantes which granted religious freedom to Protestants. Henry IV was raised as a Protestant which might be the reason he was tolerant to them. Another group of people that believed in toleration were the English levelers. The levelers were a group of religious and social reformers during the English Civil War who supported Parliament against the king but were late suppressed by Oliver Cromwell who was the leader of the republic after the execution of Charles I.
