Parliament in Context, 1235–1707

This chapter examines the contribution of the first estate, which had disappeared entirely by the time parliament's history came to an end. It is clear that the church's role in parliament evolved. While prelates were present by the end of the thirteenth century, it was not until around the turn of the sixteenth that significant ecclesiastical legislation began to emerge.

Keywords:   first estate, parliament, Protestant church, prelates, ecclesiastical legislation
