Dr. Christopher Haigh is a professor at the Oxford University and he teaches political history and religion that reigned in England between 1529 and 1640. The sixteenth century in England was an age where religion dominated the lives of people. People's lives were based on a system of divine law that was derived from the Old and New Testament. The Protestant Movement in England did make the people think, but it did not destroy the idea of a Catholic life style among people. Hence, there was poor implementation of Protestantism in England. Dr. Haigh is a revisionist, like Conrad Russell and Kevin Shape. Revisionists are historians who reinterpret the orthodox views surrounding a historical view, based on evidences, motives and decision making processes. Christoher Haigh has based his research primarily on religion.

His teachings involve all the concepts discussed above. He has published several books and edited some of them. Some of the other books published by the author include: The Reign of Elizabeth I, Reformation and Resistance, The English Reformations and the Making of the Anglican Church, etc . In this document, we will discuss the reforms in England under the Tudors, with the author's book, English Reformations: Religion, Politics and Society under the Tudors, as reference.

Catholic Christianity flourished in England before the break with Rome. This is the break with Rome that caused the decline of Catholicism, and not vice versa. The Saints (Saint Thomas Beckett, Mary Magdalene, Our Lady, St John the Baptist, St George) played a major role in the churches. Religious associations were extremely numerous and varied in England: in London there were 88 fraternities in 1500. The largest associations have declined since 1530. The golden age of fraternity is probably between 1510 and 1520; at the time they were especially popular. Belonging to a fraternity paid rich dividends when it came to securing the prayers of others for the salvation of his soul.

With more fraternities, more altars and saints, more Masses to be celebrated, a great need for new priests arose. The churches of England were filled with staff in the early sixteenth century. Conventional religion in this period of late Middle Ages was at its peak and more energetic. None of this suggested that they were on the eve of the Reformation in England that was not preceded by any collapse of Catholicism, but rather a consolidation of its considerable strength.

It was difficult to challenge the Church, because there was general support of its authority and its laws. Becoming a heretic was a constant risk.

Many of the heretics under the Tudors were descendants of the Lollards, who had followed John Wycliffe. Wycliffe condemned the wealth and privileges of the clergy of the fourteenth century and the doctrine of the Church. In London, Bristol, Ceventry, Amersham, there were established communities of Lollards. The heretics were those who refused to pay tithes and who complained of the clergy. The general level of compliance to the discipline of the Church and its beliefs showed that there was in fact little evidence of a reform to come.
