Resource Materials: Aids for Teaching about Tudor England.
Holmes, Edward, Jr.
The high school or community college history teacher can use these background materials to teach about Tudor England (1529-1603) and the foundation of the Anglican Church. The materials might also be used by humanities or literature teachers. After an explanation of the Tudor family tree, there is a discussion about the wives and legitimate children of Henry VIII, followed by a listing of influential people and important dates of the Tudor period. Next the discussion focuses on the background of the Church of England, the Book of Common Prayer, Anglican religious beliefs, the structure of Anglican clergy, and monastic orders. Succeeding this discussion, the compromises made by the Elizabethan Settlement of 1559 are listed, clergy vestments are illustrated, and the influence of Thomas Cranmer is examined. The publication concludes with a visual representation of some religious groups in Europe during the Tudor period. (RM)
