+ The Prayer Book Rebellion of 1549

The Prayer Book Rebellion of 1549 is considered a crucial point in Cornish history. English was enforced as the religious language of Christian communities and resistance to these new laws resulted in the loss of life and changes to religious practices, cultural activity and language use across Cornwall.

Key Stage 2 pupils will consider why so many people objected to the new Book of Common Prayer, discover the events which followed and explore the effects of its introduction.
