Her father wanted a male heir so he sought out to divorced Cathrine when Mary was eleven because he was afraid that if he had no male heir and he let Mary become Queen a civil war would start. In order to obtain the divorce King Henry created his own religion: The Church of England. The divorce cause Mary to resent the Church of England and didn’t accept the fact that her parents divorced. After the divorce King Henry VIII married Anne and Mary was declared illegitimate and was to no longer be called "princess",
Sanger used this evidence to state that she believed that the church’s teachings over two thousand years had failed. It is widely known in this day and age – potentially and most likely because of Margaret Sanger – that religions, more specifically Catholics, are opposed to women using birth control. There are religious clergy that teach their parishioners that they are sinning or going across what God (or their deity) wants by not allowing conception to happen naturally; it’s almost bullying. Women are being scared into abusing their bodies by having numerous children because they “aren’t supposed to use birth control.” At the time of Sanger’s presentation and some cases in the modern age, women’s lack of knowledge for many things were being used against them to keep them hidden in the dark over what they had rights
According to Abigail Archer, who wrote Elizabeth I, during Edward’s reign, Elizabeth was treated affectionately by Edward, and he welcomed her on occasional visits to court. However, during Mary’s reign Elizabeth suffered. Abigail Archer suggest that “Mary’s attitude toward Elizabeth veered from friendship to suspicion and back.” (Archer n.p.) This could be for the reasons mentioned before, she did not trust her due to her faith after Elizabeth’s birth and that they believe in different religions. Abigail Archer also suggests that “Mary intended to return England to Catholicism, but she knew Elizabeth was a least tolerant of Protestantism, and therefore posed a risk.” (Archer n.p.)

Towards the end of the era people started to question Christianity and this was due to science and the push of industrial revolution (BBC Primary History- victorian England). This period was responsible for the loss of authority religion had. Charles Darwin ,a naturalist, had proposed a theory that god was created equal just like everyone else and was not a seperate creature like common belief. Darwin shocked many people and challenged old beliefs that had been passed on for generations. Despite the setback in religion during this time , many priests and missionaries keep the religion alive by writing books and spreading religion(Lang Sean 301).
He used to oppose many teachings and sayings of the Roman Catholic Church. His “95 Theses,” which was based on two central beliefs that the Bible is the central religious authority and that humans may reach salvation only by their faith and not by their deeds was to spark the Protestant Reformation. Although these ideas had been presented before, Martin Luther codified them at a moment in history ripe for religious reformation. The Catholic Church was ever after divided, and the Protestantism that soon emerged was shaped by Luther’s ideas. His writings changed the course of religious and cultural history in the West.
Similar to Luther, Calvin did study Christianity deeply and at his time also studied the Reformation. Calvin was in connection with a scholar named Nicolas Cop, who supported Luther and the Reformation. During his studying and developing a friendship with Cop, Calvin was banished, where Calvin converted himself to Christianity. Following being banished, Calvin struggled with the authorities running him out and looking for him as his beliefs and teachings did not follow the traditional Catholic Church. In 1536, he published the first edition of his book, “Institutes of Christian Religion” which provides defense in the faith, thoughts, and beliefs of the Reformers past and
The Puritans were English Protestants who believed that the alterations of the Church of England did not go far enough. In their view the church was too Catholic. In England, the Puritans were people of political influence, but King Charles did not agree with their attempts to reform the church. There seemed to be no hope for them but to leave England because they were being persecuted. They believed in America they could establish a colony whose government, society, and church were all bases on the Bible.

The Protestants were uprising against Mary. If Elizabeth, as a Catholic, supported Mary, Elizabeth would be considered an illegal child in the eyes of the church, but Elizabeth did not want to go against her half-sister. Even worse! After Mary got married, she imprisoned Elizabeth because she thought Elizabeth was plotting against her. After Mary Tudor died, Elizabeth became the ruler of England.
