The British Magazine (1833-4): Froude's Articles on Henry II's Plan to Unite Church and State in England


In 1833-4 a series of articles written by Richard Hurrell Froude appeared in the journal, The British Magazine: In these articles Froude proposed a theory that Henry II's appointment of Thomas Becket his favourite and chancellor to the post of archbishop of Canterbury, and Constitutions of Clarendon themselves, were part of a programme of his to bring the Church and the clerics under a single, his, the king's discipline, and were all steps in a greater reform plan of his to unite Church and State in England under his kingship. He nearly pulled it off. Only Becket stood alone against his project.
