Why did Henry VIII make the break with Rome?

This quiz will help you to assess your learning of key concepts and knowledge in this unit.

Due to the overlap in knowledge and themes, the following 'Early Modern Political History' Unit Quiz assesses knowledge from the following enquiries: 1) Why did Henry VIII make the break with Rome? 2) In what ways did the Reformation matter to ordinary people? 3) Why did the Civil War break out in 1642? 4) In what ways was Britain turned 'upside down' during the seventeenth century? 5) How revolutionary was the Glorious Revolution? The Unit Quizzes for all of these enquiries are the same quiz on the Early Modern Political History.
