Historical records, notes, and manuscripts from Cranmer’s life point to King Henry VIII as the major influencer from 1529 onward. Since Scripture states God appoints leadership, Cranmer believed that the Supreme Headship expressed God’s will and it was his duty to serve the King and support him in his endeavors.

Although Basilian Monasticism had been declining in Italy, in part because of frequent Muslim attack, Saint Nilus revitalized, despite the many dangers involved. He had several other religious accomplishments, including supporting Pope Gregory V against antipope John XVI, and writing some liturgical poetry. However, he was not always such a pious man.
