Even though Henry altered the Church, he did not even wish to introduce Protestant
doctrine. Those people who refused to accept the Church of England and its teachings were
executed. The only important religious changes made during his reign were the licensing of
an English translation of the Bible, the issuance of Cramner's litany and the translation
of English of certain parts of the traditional service. In conclusion, Henry the VIII of
England was not only a talented fellow and a rich one at that. But, he was also disloyal
to God and made many mistakes at that. Making the Church of England was probably his
greatest achievement as the King of England. Forcing people to follow a certain religion
and do what he told them to do was one of his lowest achievements. Henry the VIII was not
only selfish, wealthy man but a horrible ruler and a big sinner.

    gullivers travel I want to outline in this essay some of the ways in which Swift\'s texts - in particular the shorter prose works and the poetry concerned with the female body - take up and make explicit contradictory philosophical positions. Much time and critical effort has been spent attempting to trace some unifying philosophical thread through the maze created by these and other of Swift\'s writings, when such a thread may be elusive to the point of vanishing altogether.1 It seems possible
