The English Reformation

The beginning of the English Reformation is often considered 1534 when King Henry VIII declared himself to be the supreme head of the church in England. However, as early as 1512 John Colet was attacking clergy and prelates alike. Simon Fishís *Supplication for Beggars*, published in 1529 was highly critical of the abuse of indulgences. William Tracyís will, which was circulated around 1530 caused quite a stir because of its evangelical flavor.
