At the Hampton Court Conference in London, Puritan representatives meet with King James I to discuss new reforms for the Church of England.

King James ends up alienating the more extreme wings of the Catholic and Puritan groups, but they would be unhappy with any sort of meeting and compromise. Moderates, in contrast, are not only happy with the progress they end up providing James with increased support.

One of the most significant products of these meetings is the creation of the Authorized Version of the Bible in English, later known as the King James Version.
