I believe from what I read Mary was accused of being involved of plotting against the Spanish marriage of Mary and Phillip (son of emperor Charles V) this was a rebellion lead by wyatt who was executed on the grounds of treason and lead to Elizabeth's imprisonment due to alleged involvement. This also lead to the death of Lady Jane Grey who was beheaded as she was considered a threat to the throne.

That's what I can sum up anyway, rather messy affair that one.

Oh and about the religion: Elizabeth needed a way to birth Catholic heirs and hence why the need for this marriage Phillip was considered to be a devout Catholic and so would be the perfect suitor however, not only was there a lot of xenophobia particularly with having a foreign king on the throne causing civil unrest among the public population, wyatt: thought this arranged marriage would undo the sovereignty of Henry the 8th preferring a different "male" to take the throne instead: Edward Courtenay and was having none of that: of course, this meant that England had no male ruler and Elizabeth would then be forced to take the throne instead alone as queen.

I think I saw a movie trailer that showed brief scenes of all this taking place I guess reading this it all makes sense now.

I just realized none of this actually helps you answer your question but only neatly sums up "the whys it happened" sorry for not being much use to you on this, I don't think I could summarize the threats as well as VegetableMarvell big props to her for having actually done this work previously. Though it did give me a better perspective on Mary in general.
