Protestant church

How important was religion back then? It was very important it was the basis of their society. It was so important that Queen Elizabeth made attendance at church mandatory, even though most people that went to church had to travel very long distances were forced to come, if you didn't come to church you would have to pay the consequences.

The beliefs in this religion were so strong that it actually led to execution most time for ether side of the religon.
