Elizabethan Period The Elizabethan Period was the age of the Renaissance, of new ideas and new thinking. Picture of Queen Elizabeth I. The new ideas, information and increased knowledge about science, technology and astrology led to a renewed interest in the supernatural including witches, witchcraft and ghosts which led to belief in superstitions and the supernatural.

Superstitions in the Elizabethan Period Fear of the supernatural and forces of nature or God resulted in the belief of superstitions during the Elizabethan period. I find her fascinating. I know this term is going to be great, just based on that! Hi, Claire! I love this. Sadly, my knowledge of English history is sorely lacking, so I hope to learn a lot myself before we get to this stage in our history studies. I am glad you had a wonderful break that included doing a little singing. I get the same response over here. We are surrounded by rain and more rain that has ended our drought.

You know that pond I wish we had to visit here? Well, we just about have one in our backyard. Now, if I could just get some ducks to visit. Hi Donna!! I hope you had a really lovely time. Laughing re pond — I shall pray for ducks for you! Although you may regret them, they make a lot of noise when they are in flight our home is under the flight path the ducks use to go to where ever they roost. We had a wonderful vacation. Looks like a dry week ahead. We live under the flight path of a naval air station! I poured over this with my history loving daughter.

I strongly suspect that we will use some of these activities when we reach the Tudors or she may not be able to resist trying a regal signature before then. I love that movie, Elizabeth the Golden Age. All the activities look like fun! Thanks Christy! Yes, we had the children close their eyes for one or two of the scenes but it was way too good to miss altogether. We are enjoying a new bbc documentary about Queen Elizabeth and the Spanish Armada, have you seen it?

It is using new evidence found, very interesting.

    Trying to get my son to join in with the dancing has been a huge amount of fun for me, anyway. This was really interesting, Claire!

The Tudor Family Tree Again, over the last five week term the children had been reading through the My Story set of Tudor books and were therefore, without any effort from me, fairly well versed to the whole Tudor Family tree. It lacked a useful strategy. It did serve for defence against invasion, and for enhancing England's international prestige. Professor Sara Nair James says that in — Cardinal Thomas Wolsey , "would be the most powerful man in England except, possibly, for the king.

    Operating with the firm support of the king, and with special powers over the church given by the Pope, Wolsey dominated civic affairs, administration, the law, the church, and foreign-policy. He was amazingly energetic and far-reaching. In terms of achievements, he built a great fortune for himself, and was a major benefactor of arts, humanities and education. He projected numerous reforms, but in the end English government had not changed much. For all the promise, there was very little achievement of note. From the king's perspective, his greatest failure was an inability to get a divorce when Henry VIII needed a new wife to give him a son who would be the undisputed heir to the throne.

    Historians agree that Wolsey was a disappointment. In the end, he conspired with Henry's enemies, and died of natural causes before he could be beheaded. Historian Geoffrey Elton argued that Thomas Cromwell , who was Henry VIII's chief minister from to , not only removed control of the Church of England from the hands of the Pope, but transformed England with an unprecedented modern, bureaucratic government. Cromwell introduced reforms into the administration that delineated the King's household from the state and created a modern administration.

    He injected Tudor power into the darker corners of the realm and radically altered the role of the Parliament of England. This transition happened in the s, Elton argued, and must be regarded as part of a planned revolution. Elton's point was that before Cromwell the realm could be viewed as the King's private estate writ large, where most administration was done by the King's household servants rather than separate state offices. By masterminding these reforms, Cromwell laid the foundations of England's future stability and success.

    Cromwell's luck ran out when he picked the wrong bride for the King; he was beheaded for treason, More recently historians have emphasised that the king and others played powerful roles as well. Meanwhile, customs revenue was slipping. To get even larger sums it was proposed to seize the lands owned by monasteries, some of which the monks farmed and most of which was leased to local gentry. Taking ownership meant the rents went to the king. He created a new department of state and a new official to collect the proceeds of the dissolution and the First Fruits and Tenths.

    The Court of Augmentations and number of departments meant a growing number of officials, which made the management of revenue a major activity. Its drawback was the multiplication of departments whose sole unifying agent was Cromwell; his fall caused confusion and uncertainty; the solution was even greater reliance on bureaucratic institutions and the new Privy Council.

    In dramatic contrast to his father, Henry VIII spent heavily, in terms of military operations in Britain and in France, and in building a great network of palaces. How to pay for it remained a serious issue. The growing number of departments meant many new salaried bureaucrats.

    There were further financial and administrative difficulties in —58, aggravated by war, debasement, corruption and inefficiency, which were mainly caused by Somerset.

    After Cromwell's fall, William Paulet, 1st Marquess of Winchester , the Lord Treasurer , produced further reforms to simplify the arrangements, reforms which united most of the crown's finance under the exchequer. The courts of general surveyors and augmentations were fused into a new Court of Augmentations, and this was later absorbed into the exchequer along with the First Fruits and Tenths. There was little debt, and he left his son a large treasury.

    Henry VIII spent heavily on luxuries, such as tapestries and palaces, but his peacetime budget was generally satisfactory. The heavy strain came from warfare, including building defences, building a Navy, Suppressing insurrections, warring with Scotland, and engaging in very expensive continental warfare. Henry's Continental wars won him little glory or diplomatic influence, and no territory. After , the Privy Coffers were responsible for 'secret affairs', in particular for the financing of war.

    However, under the direction of regent Northumberland, Edward's wars were brought to an end.

    The mint no longer generated extra revenue after debasement was stopped in Although Henry was only in his mids, his health deteriorated rapidly in At the time the conservative faction, led by Bishop Stephen Gardiner and Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk that was opposed to religious reformation seemed to be in power, and was poised to take control of the regency of the nine-year-old boy who was heir to the throne. However, when the king died, the pro-reformation factions suddenly seized control of the new king, and of the Regency Council, under the leadership of Edward Seymour.

    Bishop Gardiner was discredited, and the Duke of Norfolk was imprisoned for all of the new king's reign. When the boy king was crowned, Somerset became Lord Protector of the realm and in effect ruled England from to Seymour led expensive, inconclusive wars with Scotland. His religious policies angered Catholics. Purgatory was rejected so there was no more need for prayers to saints, relics, and statues, nor for masses for the dead. Some permanent endowments called chantries had been established that supported thousands of priests who celebrated masses for the dead, or operated schools or hospitals in order to earn grace for the soul in purgatory.

    The endowments were seized by Cromwell in By autumn , his costly wars had lost momentum, the crown faced financial ruin, and riots and rebellions had broken out around the country. He was overthrown by his former ally John Dudley, 1st Duke of Northumberland. Until recent decades, Somerset's reputation with historians was high, in view of his many proclamations that appeared to back the common people against a rapacious landowning class. In the early 20th century this line was taken by the influential A. Pollard , to be echoed by Edward VI's leading biographer W.

    A more critical approach was initiated by M. Bush and Dale Hoak in the mids. Since then, Somerset has often been portrayed as an arrogant ruler, devoid of the political and administrative skills necessary for governing the Tudor state.

    Life in Elizabethan England

    Dudley by contrast moved quickly after taking over an almost bankrupt administration in To prevent further uprisings he introduced countrywide policing, appointed Lords Lieutenants who were in close contact with London, and set up what amounted to a standing national army. Working closely with Thomas Cramner , the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dudley pursued an aggressively Protestant religious policy.

    They promoted radical reformers to high Church positions, with the Catholic bishops under attack. The Mass was no longer to be celebrated, and preaching became the centerpiece of church services. Purgatory , Protestantism declared, was a Catholic superstition that falsified the Scriptures. Prayers for the dead were useless because no one was actually in Purgatory. It followed that prayers to saints, veneration of relics, and adoration of statues were all useless superstitions that had to end. For centuries devout Englishman had created endowments called chantries designed as good works that generated grace to help them get out of purgatory after they died.

    Many chantries were altars or chapels inside churches, or endowments that supported thousands of priests who said Masses for the dead. In addition there were many schools and hospitals established as good works.

    In a new law closed down 2, chantries and seized their assets. Dickens has concluded:. But when the king suddenly died, Dudley's last-minute efforts to make his daughter-in-law Lady Jane Grey the new sovereign failed. Queen Mary took over and had him beheaded. She was next in line for the throne. Northumberland wanted to keep control of the government, and promote Protestantism.

    Edward signed a devise to alter the succession, but that was not legal, for only Parliament could amend its own acts. Edward's Privy Council kept his death secret for three days to install Lady Jane, but Northumberland had neglected to take control of Princess Mary. She fled and organised a band of supporters, who proclaimed her Queen across the country. The Privy Council abandoned Northumberland, and proclaimed Mary to be the sovereign after nine days of the pretended Jane Grey.

    Queen Mary imprisoned Lady Jane and executed Northumberland. Mary is remembered for her vigorous efforts to restore Roman Catholicism after Edward's short-lived crusade to minimise Catholicism in England. Protestant historians have long denigrated her reign, emphasising that in just five years she burned several hundred Protestants at the stake in the Marian persecutions.

    However, a historiographical revisionism since the s has to some degree improved her reputation among scholars.

    Protestant writers at the time took a highly negative view, blasting her as "Bloody Mary". Foxe's book taught Protestants for centuries that Mary was a bloodthirsty tyrant. In the midth century, H. Prescott attempted to redress the tradition that Mary was intolerant and authoritarian by writing more objectively, and scholarship since then has tended to view the older, simpler, partisan assessments of Mary with greater scepticism.

    Haigh concluded that the "last years of Mary's reign were not a gruesome preparation for Protestant victory, but a continuing consolidation of Catholic strength. In other countries, the Catholic Counter-Reformation was spearheaded by Jesuit missionaries; Mary's chief religious advisor, Cardinal Pole, refused to allow the Jesuits in England.
