the Puritan party, ever growing stronger
— these were tile staple of home trat unc
tions during this reign. Foreign affairs
also were almost entirely acts of the samo
drama, -the gîtent struggle between |i,e
two religious. I Popo Puul IV. refused to
acknowledge Kixabeth's title; Pius V.
and Sixtus V. published hulls of excom
munication against her, and absolved her
subjects from their allegiance. The King
of Fronce supported the claim of Mary)
l/ueen of Soots to tho crown of England',
aud Klixabctli assisted the Protestants in
Scotland, in France, and the Netherland ;
