Forty-Two Articles

Forty-Two Articles


When King Henry VIII died, his son Edward VI followed him to the throne. During his brief years England saw the six Articles (from Henry’s reign) repealed, priests allowed to marry, and the old Latin service of worship replaced by Cranmer’s Book of Common Prayer in English. In 1553 Cranmer also produced the Forty-Two Articles which defined the faith of the Church of England along Protestant lines.
