He was a Protestant. His wife was Catholic. Many people accused him of being a catholic because he wore extravagant clothing and Catholics were known to like extra…vagant things.
The KJV is a Protestant Bible.
Catholic Answer There is no "Protestant Bible". The Bible translation most commonly used by protestants is the Authorized Version, commonly known as the King James Version, wh…ich is the name of a translation of the Bible. The Bible is a whole collection of books, and as such does not have a name. The early Church used the Septuagint for their Old Testament, and had many different scrolls in Latin and Greek for their New Testament Scriptures. The first "official" Bible, as in one continuous book was The Vulgate which was a translations of all the Scriptures by St. Jerome in the fourth century. The closest thing that the Catholic Church has in English is the Douay-Rheims translation, which was made about the same time as the Authorized Version.
Henry the fourth
James I of England was Protestant not Catholic.
protestant im sure!!
He didn't. There were many rifts between the 'Catholic' Church - especially the Great schism between the Church in the East and the West - long before Henry VIII. A…s for the Protestant Church , even this had little to do with Henry, but began long before Henry mostly by Martin Luther, a German monk, who quarrelled with the Church over corrupt practices, especially the doctrine of purgatory and the selling of indulgences. This culminated in his publishing his 'theses' against the Church by nailing them to a church door at Wittenberg. As a result Martin Luther was excommunicated but he, Calvin and Zwingli between them began the Reformation and the formation of the Protestant Church - so called as it 'protested' against Rome. As for Henry, there was already a great sympathy for the Protestant movement in England not least because of the corruption and power wielded by the monasteries. The refusal of the Pope to grant an annulment of the marriage between Anne Boleyn and Henry (for political reasons as far as Henry was concerned) was the last straw and resulted in Henry yielding to public pressure and forming the Church of England, with Christ (not the Pope) as head of the Church, with Henry himself (and subsequent monarchs) as 'supreme governor' on earth, and the Archbishop of Canterbury as spiritual leader. He subsequently dissolved the monasteries in England, seizing their treasures, allowed the Bible and Prayer Book to be written in English and not solely in Latin, and tried to ensure that the Protestant line would continue through his descendents, an effort in which, with the exception of Mary I, he was successful. Henry VIII is regarded as somewhat of a tyrant king by modern historians, but this is a little unfair. While there is no doubt that, when riled, he was not to be argued with (after all he did arrange the execution of two of his six wives), he was generally liked by the populace as a whole, was a clever and astute ruler, and a first class musician (he wrote the tune 'Greensleeves' among many others), and it is a shame that he is remembered solely for 'starting a fight' between Catholics and Protestants, when he was not to blame for such a rift or arguement.
the protestants believe king billy was a protestant because that's what they are forced to believe other wise it would cause much debate among their faith.
Henry IV (Henry of Navarre)
he was prtestant!
He was catholic
There is no way a Catholic should ever accept such a mistake-prone, error-filled, truncated copy of the Sacred Scriptures as the King James Version. The King James Version, na…med after the famous morally corrupt king of England was a translation based on Martin Luther's truncated version of the Scriptures, and sought to *slant* translations so as to favor the interpretation of those who disagree with the previous 1,500 years of Christian teaching.
King Henry VIII was born a Catholic, and remained one until the pope would not grant him a divorce from his first wife, Catherine of Aragon. He then decided not to remain with… Catholic Church, and to form a separate church in England-- a protestant one. So by the time he died, he was officially a protestant (although many still believe he was basically a Catholic at heart). His eldest daughter, Queen Mary, would rule as a Catholic, and his youngest daughter, Queen Elizabeth I, would rule as a protestant.
