  • Product Description: Herein is told in incredible detail the story of Henry VIII, the English king who separated his country from Rome and assumed the headship of the Church in England as a result of his mad effort to have a male heir. The author describes his wicked life and despotic rule: how he married Anne Boleyn, who was his own illegitimate daughter (from whom was born Elizabeth), and who in her effort to provide Henry with a son had relations with 5 other men (including her brother); how this led to her execution and Henry's marrying Jane Seymour, who bore him Edward VI, the child king who after Henry's relatively early death at 57 assumed the crown under regency and died at only age 16. Ironically, on the anniversary of Henry's beheading St. Thomas More. In all, The Rise and Growth of the Anglican Schism provides an intimate look into the lives and times of the unsavory characters who produced the disastrous Protestant Reformation in England. It is a unique book that cannot be ignored by anyone interested in the complete and true story of that sad, sad event.
