I have the same question. At the moment i've only looked at the AQA study notes but what I can make out is that in terms of church, he sucessfully established good relations between the crown and the papacy. He was also sucessful at finances and especially the judicary system (the star chamber). However his anti - enclosure policy, whilst well intended, is less clearly a stength on his part. It could be argued it was unecessary as enclosure had occured over the past twenty years and infact created employment as it would bring the wool industry to the area through pastoral farming. Food crisis's of the 1520's appear to be Wolsey's main motive for his anti enclosure plocy.
** ENCLOSURE - The purchasing of arable land and converting it to pastoral.
Hope this helps!
