[Homework]【整理】2015-10-26 PBS:走进亨利八世的宫廷-13

The church was the only institution around which would get you to heaven. Across Christian Europe, kings bowed to the spiritual authority of the Pope. And the monastic orders of the Catholic church was central to society. This is the priory church of St. Bartholomew. It's right in the middle of central London and it's just a fragment of the beautiful medieval church which existed once. The community of monks here served the poor. They educated children. They looked after the sick. In other words, a church like this would be the center of the community.
But by the start of the 16th century, the Catholic church was widely corrupt. Popes led debauched lives. And if you were rich, salvation could be bought. By the 1520s, worshippers were rebelling. The Protestant Reformation, as it would be called, is sweeping across Europe. The reformers demanded an end to the Pope's control.
In England, Henry remained steadfastly loyal. He took religion seriously.
Henry thought he had a special relationship with god, a unique relationship with god, you might say.
He believed that the Tudor Dynasty were only on the throne because of god's favor. And so Henry, all through his life, wanted to please the god.
