The Pursuit of a Godly Conjunction

The Pursuit of a Godly Conjunction

(p.78) 3 The Pursuit of a Godly Conjunction
Scotland, England, and the Reformation 1534-61


Oxford University Press

This chapter begins by discussing that James V's unexpected death in December 1542 led to an entirely new phase in Henry VIII's policy towards Scotland. It then explains that in order to resolve England's diplomatic problems and religious insecurities, the Scottish queen was married to Prince Edward. It clarifies that the transformation of the political scene had not eliminated certain intractable complications in recent Anglo-Scottish dealings. It explains that the religious dynamic of the practice of assuring could therefore be a strong weapon for either side in the conduct of war. It examines the Castilian enterprise during 1546 to 1547. It argues that the incompatibility of the aims of the Scottish rebels and Henry VIII showed the difference between their interpretations of the purpose of their alliance. It discusses Somerset's effort to revive the Anglo-Scottish union.
