Scotland, England, and the Reformation 1534-61

This chapter stresses that England's break with Rome clearly showed that the religious upheavals of one country would have an inescapable significance for the neighbouring realm. Ongoing interactions between religious sympathisers of various persuasions throughout the 1540s brought further tension to an already difficult diplomatic relationship. It narrates that while the English government had been doing its best to minimise Catholic threat from the north after 1534, the Scots, too, were attempting to counter the dangerous effects of advancing Protestant doctrines. It explains that the Anglo-Scottish amity offered an important source of strength and security to the reformed regimes of England and Scotland. It discusses that the processes of reformation from the 1530s prompted the peoples of England and Scotland to reconsider all aspects of the relations between the countries: religious, diplomatic, historical, and physical.
