hey my teacher set this elizabeth 20 marker:'Papacy was the main reason that there was an increase in Catholic opposition from 1559-88’
and im arguing that internal religious divisions and the religious settlement were the main reason for an increase in Catholic opposition

would really appreciate if someone was able to give feedback on it, anyting i can improve on thank u x

It could also be argued religious divisions was the main reason that there was an increase in Catholic opposition. When
Elizabeth acceded to the throne, she inherited a legacy of religious confusion. Ever since Henry VII split with Rome in 1533, England’s religious stability was challenged. Since the 1530s, there had been constant religious changes in
England. For example, Edward VI tried to make England Protestant whereas Mary I tried to revert England back to a Catholic country. This led too deep divisions amongst social classes which then led to violent uprisings against the monarch.
When Elizabeth took the throne, the Crown was £300,000 in debt. The financial weakness meant any potential uprising had a good chance of success because she would not have the money to put it down. The level of threat that Elizabeth faced was reflected in her decision to introduce the Religious Settlement of 1559 which aimed to please both Protestants and Catholics. She hoped to undermine the Catholic threat by allowing churches to be decorated and not pursuing Catholics who took mass secretly at home. As a Protestant, Elizabeth’s significant decision to create the Religious Settlement shows just how much of a threat she saw a potential uprising and confirms the fact that internal religious divisions were the main reason for an increase in Catholic opposition.

also just to infer more:
excommunication- increased catholic opposition through the fact that she was banned from attending church, meaning she was a bad protestant as well as a non catholic
Mary, Queen of Scots- she was a catholic and the cousin of Elizabeth I, and at that time, England was a Catholic country, meaning they would prefer a catholic reign. Elizabeth was a protestant. Christians believed that Mary was the rightful heir to the throne so therefore aopposed Elizabeth.

hope it helps x
