Read and annotate for 18th/19th October

Download the Declaration of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal and annotate it using

You can annotate the document as you see fit (which includes asking questions about those things you are not sure you understand), but I encourage you especially to ponder these questions as you read and annotate:

  1. Try to determine both thanks to the date and your reading of the document when this declaration is situated in the flow of historical events.
  2. How do the authors analyse the situation?
  3. With what kind of authority do the authors speak?
  4. What do the authors hope to achieve with their declaration?
