This paper explains that, although Henry VIII is know for his many wives and his break from the Catholic Church, he also created drastic changes to the Church and to English society, which later spread to America. The author describes the reformation of the Catholic Church in Europe and England, which was without a doubt the most important event of the 16th century. The paper relates that, after the death of Henry VIII, his influence continued to be observed as British society moved from an almost medieval feudal society into a more modern, capitalistic culture in which industrialization and urbanization replaced agriculture as the primary source of production and the role of women began to change.
