While the Roman Catholic Church had a large role in the lives of the people of Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries, only in England do we see the Church ruled by the Monarch. Learn how the role of the Anglican Church in Virginia was more about controlling behavior and keeping down rebellion than with saving souls. Education Coordinator John Ericson will share his research about this unique marriage of church and state.
