This chapter explains that the reformation changes initiated by England from 1534 generated a dynamic interplay between two autonomous kingdoms sharing a single island form, making the northern border an immensely significant flashpoint for religious tensions. It adds that the resulting interactions between the countries were profoundly important in shaping contemporary religious and political thought. It discusses that the dealings of the English crown's subjects in Ireland had an inescapable influence on religious developments, and, as such, they are an important feature of many of the events described. It also tells that the impact of reform on Wales was also impossible to ignore, and the interweaving of the religious affairs of all areas of the British Isles forms a recurring theme of this work. It clarifies that the religious changes which were initiated by England's break with Rome demonstrated how the dealings of one country impinged the affairs of another.
