  • Read Polydore Vergil’s description of Wolsey on p.48. How accurate is his description? Remember NOP!


Church – policy successes

Restricted benefit of clergy with a new Act of Parliament (1512)

Held an Ecclesiastical Council (1518) to improve conduct of clergy

Began visitations of monasteries; rules for Benedictines & Augustinians drawn up

Drew up new episcopal sees more fairly based on population figures


Failures / criticisms

Established probate courts to increase his own income from wills & bequests

Pluralist, e.g. Abp of York, Bp of Winchester, Abbot of St Albans

Dissolution of monasteries provided funds for personal projects, e.g. Cardinal College, Cambridge


 Extension task
