Edward’s council prohibited processions, the use of Ash Wednesday ashes and Palm Sunday palms, and the custom of “creeping to the cross” on Good Friday. In Protestant eyes these colourful and symbolic Catholic ceremonies were likely to obscure rather than illuminate God’s purposes, providing the masses with the illusion of religious observance that was no substitute for meditation on the written word. In the past, statues, crucifixes and stained-glass windows had informed people about their faith.

Scarisbrick, Christopher Haigh and Eamon Duffy have proposed that governmentimposed changes were accepted only slowly and reluctantly by a population still wedded to traditional ways. A lively and ongoing historical debate has focused on whether change was fast or slow, imposed from above or embraced from below, on when and even whether England became a Protestant country. Our understanding of the process of change has been enhanced by research on the impact of the Reformation in particular localities.

The largely clerical universities nurtured and disseminated new ideas that appealed to some humanists and others dissatisfied with the current state of the church. Prior to the Reformation few would have dreamt of deserting the Catholic church (at that time an inconceivable thought) but once this became a possibility some (not all) slipped easily into Protestant clothes. Reformed teaching probably also met the needs of people who had wavered on the borders between heresy and orthodoxy, men and women of varying levels in society who had their own personal doubts about reverencing images, praying to saints and the central Catholic belief of transubstantiation.
