English Parliament Passes Act Extinguishing Authority of Bishop of Rome

King Henry VIII and the Dissolution of the Monasteries

An Act Extinguishing the Authority of the Bishop of Rome is passed by the English Parliament.

With it, papal authority is declared void in England as the English Reformation takes over, and the government takes control of the country's church. With it, any hope of reconciliation between Rome and England is eliminated.

Anyone who tries to defend papal authority in England will be punished harshly. Anyone taking secular office, a religious office, or beginning studies at university must openly reject the authority of Rome while submitting to Royal Supremacy.
