The heart of this book lies in the important discovery that a pivotal Tudor argument in favor of the Royal Supremacy-the argument from Psalm 82 that earthly kings are `gods' on this earth-is in fact Zwinglian in origin. This teaching from Psalm 82, which originated in Zurich in the mid-1520s, was soon used extensively in England to justify the Supremacy, and English evangelicals-from Tyndale to Cranmer-unanimously embraced this Protestant argument in their writings on political obedience. The discovery of this link shows conclusive, textual proof of the `Zurich Connection' between Swiss political teachings and those popular under Tudor kings. This study argues, then, that evangelical attitudes towards royal authority were motivated by the assumption that Protestantism supported `godly kingship' over against `papal tyranny'. As such, it is the first monograph to find a vital connection between early Swiss Protestant similar teachings on obedience and later teachings by evangelicals.
