    'Exciting Discovery' Reveals Henry VIII as Firm Believer in Catholicism

    Source: Telegraph (UK) (4-4-09)
    Henry VIII, known as the scourge of the Catholic church, has been revealed as having been a firm believer in the religion he later tried to destroy, thanks to a new discovery.

    A prayer roll once belonging to Henry and inscribed with his own handwriting, has been brought to light ahead of a major new exhibition on his life.

    It will be shown in public for the first time at the British Library's exhibition Henry VIII: Man and Monarch, which opens later this month and marks the 500th anniversary of Henry's accession to the throne.

    The roll, which is around 13 feet long and 5 inches wide, is made of narrow strips of parchment stitched together.

    It bears Henry's official badge of arms and the Tudor rose, and is decorated with a series of illuminations including the Trinity, the Crucifixion and scenes from Christ's Passion.

    Under the central image of Christ's Passion is an inscription written by Henry, which reads: "Willyam Thomas, I pray yow pray for me your lovyng master: Prynce Henry."

    He was at one time, but this doesn't change what he did; he lost himself to madness.

    Its not new. In the early days of his reign the Pope called Henry "The Defender of the faith" )i.e The defender of the Catholic Church.

    Our Great King Henry VIII later picked up on what was going on in Germany. The Protestant reformation was primarily the Nordic spirit reasserting itself, rejecting the hocus pocus, voodoo, indulgences, lucky charms, relics and tyranny of Southern European Catholicism.
    As in Germany, where the Barons, Dukes and Princes saw a spiritual way to defy the Pope and seek liberty , so did Henry realise he could assert English nationhood and independence
