3) He also believed in the subjection of Parliament to the king’s will and insisted on strict conformity to the rites of the Anglican Church.
4) Catholics and Puritans were thus excluded from (holding) public offices. On 5 November 1605 English Catholics organized the Gunpowder Plot, so-called because they tried to blow up the king and the Parliament in session.
