The fateful decisions of Henry VIII which tore England from the true Church occurred nearly 500 years ago. Yet even today, apologists for Henry's cruel treatment of his wife, Catherine of Aragon, argue that the king's motives, while perhaps not admirable, were merely political: the stability of the Tudor line and of the whole realm demanded a male heir.
This lecture, as told by Christopher Check, exposes that dishonest defense, lays bare Henry's true motives in divorcing Catherine, identifies the sinister operators behind the scenes, unwinds the convoluted legal arguments Henry attempted to justify his actions, and names the painful and widespread effects of the divorce we feel yet today. Henry VIII's divorce is among mankind's most consequential tragedies.
