ABSTRACT
The article discusses issues related to the reign of Elizabeth I in England. In 1559, when she summoned Parliament, the most pressing issue was the religious settlement. From the passage of the Acts of Uniformity and Supremacy in 1559, writers have questioned the nature of Elizabeth's faith. Although recognizing that her denial of papal power meant she adhered to some kind of Protestantism, they believed the compromises leading to those statutes' enactment made it unlikely they wholly mirrored her beliefs.
