To give full and conclusive answers to these questions, we should not only have to have access to all contemprary documents, private and public, and especially to civil and ecclesiastical court records which are in any way relevant to the matter at hand, but we should also be able by some seer's art to enter the innermost minds and hearts of the participants in the far-reaching drama of the early sixteenth century. In default of this, we can only examine the evidence contained in existing contemporary sources of one diocese, and from these fragments endeavor to reconstruct enough of that original picture to shed some light on what was actually taking place in England during the initial years of the reformation, and on the extent to which royal supremacy was acknowledged and supported there during the reign of Henry VIII.
