The balance between authority and a power which he presents would be challenged by the imperialism of the Tudors. It was only by the skin of their teeth and the exercise of significant theological subtlety and resilience that Anglicans managed to navigate the Tudor form of that imperialism and the residual imperialisms which the narrow terms of the Restoration of 1662 sought unsuccessfully to impose. ’25 His book thus sees the notion of nation and nationalism beginning in 1780. This view has been subjected to severe criticism and has been brought into doubt by recent early modern and medieval historical studies.
That tradition, moreover, had emerged in conjunction with the nation’s Anglican faith. The papacy did not represent constraint on imperial notions of power; on the contrary it had adopted just such an idea of jurisdictional power in the church. The evidence from as far back as William I and Pope Gregory VII points to papal commitment to imperial notions of power in the church. The Reformation legislation of Henry VIII and Edward VI is startling in the English environment for the absolute claims it makes in both the political and religious aspects of society.
The laity controlled much of the organisation and fabric of the church. Parish appointments were mostly made by lay patrons. Parliament remained supreme in all church matters. Bishops were the instruments of this structure, and at the local level the clergy mostly came to be identified with the gentry; their education carried none of the professional theological elements which came to mark the late nineteenth-century scene. In all of these respects Anglicanism could hardly have been more of a contrast to the clericalised and centralised new papacy and Roman church.
