CHURCH OF ENGLAND EXISTED
Long Boforo Henry VIII -? Bishop
Keeks to Correct Mismlorstanding.
Rev. Dr. Charles Lowls Slattory,
rector of Grace church, New York,
And Bishop-Condjutor-elect of Mas
sachusetts, has signalized his eleva
tion to that Important "See" hy tho
launching of a movement to correct
the misconception that Henry VIII
of England-ho of* tho oight wives
nMl unsavory memory-foundod tho
Church of England. Not only have
some historians perpetuated this doc
trine, but It has recently boon dis
covered that, in tho New York pub
lic schools, at least, pupils aro being
instructed that the Eighth Henry
was tho father of tho church through
which tho Episcopal church In Amer
ica traces Rs descent from Apostolic
days. And a committee has been ap
pointed by tho Diocese of Long is
land to confer with tao board of edu
cation in an effort to stop the spread
ing of the historical error.
"Henry VIII," says Bishop-elect
Slattery in a statement, "not only did
not found tho Church of England,
but. ho had nothing whatever to do
with the Reformation.
In tho lGth century the Christian
church mot the culmination of the
desire of tho best, people in the
church throughout Europe for re
form. In. the course of years people
had grown careless about character
and church doctrines wore distorted.
"In many countries tho reforma
tion of abuses within tho church and
a return to a more primitivo order
caused a division among the people.
Rut In England, to a very large ex
tent, the whole nation was identified
with the reformation of tho church.
"Henry VIII had little Interest in
the Christian church as tho church.
Leaders long restive under abuses
took advantage of Henry's quarrel
With tho Pope to break away from
servitude to an ecclesiastic outside
of longland, whose authority In Eng
land had in one form or another been
constantly disputed. With tho break
ing away from this ecclesiastic's for
eign authority there came with the
revival of Christian learning a break
ing away also from phases bf doc

igin could be easily traced by Eng
"There are three illustrations fre
quently used to describe what actu
ally happened to tho Church of Eng
land in the days of Henry Villi" The
first Is that of a man recovering from
tho. Roman fever. Ho is the same
man after recovery as before.
"Another illustration ls that of the
old tower nt Newport, long covered
with vines, so that no ono could see
tl e stones of which lt was built. Tho
vines wore taken away and one saw
not liing but stones. But it was tho
"The third illustration is that of a
hoy whoso face has just hoon washed.
His appearance is quito different,
but ho is tho same boy.
"lt is, therefore, accurate to say
that tho Church of England, tracing
its history through different chan
nels lo the earliest times, was re
formed in the time of Henry VIII.
Rut so far from tho church's begin
ning in the timo of Henry VIII, lt
was not oven reformed by him."
