Best Answer

King Henry (VIII) wanted to divorce his first wife, Catherine of Aragon.

He applied to the Pope in Rome. The Pope would not annul ther marriage. Basically, Henry said that no one outside England was going to tell him what to do in England, because he was King.

So he broke away from the Roman Catholic Church (the Pope), and reformed the Roman Catholic Church that was in England, into the modern Anglican Communion. It is known as the 'Reformation'.

NB When you see pictures of King Henry, and knowing his actions from history , he comes accross as a very Autocratic person.

Why did the protestant reformation come to England?

Henry VIII did a great job of preventing the Protestant Reformation from having any great affect on England - until he needed a divorce. When the Catholic Church refused to grant Henry VIII a divorce, he decided to make his own version of Christianity, where he made the rules. Henry VIII started the Anglican / Church of England, where Henry VIII was the head of the church (much like the Pope). Henry VIII gave himself permission to divorce and ordered all his subjects to become Protestant.

Anglican Catholic Answer!Henry didn't of course turn England protestant or turn protestant himself.What Henry did, for whatever reason, was to query the right of the papacy to interfere in another bishop's see! Pointing out that whoever did so contravened the Canons of Nicea and broke the basic rules of the Church!To adhere to the rules of the Ecumenical Councils is not to become protestant, to abandon the teaching of the Church is to become a heretic! Henry abandoned no rules or teaching!
