Posted by mysterychicken on Saturday, October 3, 2009 at 12:10pm.

I have to write an essay on this topic:

In an essay, discuss the causes of discontent between Catholics and Protestants in Ireland and the significant events in this drama. Be sure to include dates throughout your essay in order to create a timeline of the events.

This is what I have:

Up until the 1500s, the Roman Catholic Church directed religious affairs in most of Western Europe but in the early 1500s, groups in Europe tried to transform some of the Church’s practices and started reform movement known as the Reformation. Because of the Reformation, a split soon developed between the Roman Catholics and the Protestants, the name given to those Christians who protested the policies of the Roman Catholic Church.
In the year of 1534, Henry VIII of England broke away from the Roman Catholic Church and founded the Church of England. He made himself leader of the church and moved to strengthen his power. He also changed his title from Lord of Ireland to King of Ireland.
