This book highlights and explores the important relationship between the Tudor supremacy over the church and the hermeneutics of discerning God's will. It addresses this topic by considering defences of the Henrician and Elizabethan royal supremacies over the English church made by Christopher St. German, and Richard Hooker. Both of these men were in broad agreement that it was the responsibility of English Christians to subordinate their subjective understandings of God's will to the interpretation of God's will propounded by the church authorities.
