The theory of divine right, or absolute monarchy entails creation of a single, established church practicing a single ceremonial and teaching a single religious belief system. All Protestants, in varying degrees, took issue with this. They all challenged the position of the Pope and the role of papal authority within the Church regarding the creation of a single, established church with one head.
Henry VIII, wanted a son which his first wife after 18 years of marriage had not produced. When the Pope for his own political reasons would not give him the annulment that he wanted, Henry took matters in his own hands and separated the Church of England from Roman control; in essence, creating his own church. So he broke with Catholicism and the supremacy of the Pope not so much for religious reasons as for dynastic ones.
The break with Rome opened the door for more radical reformers from the continent to come to England to change the theological basis of the Church in a more Protestant direction. Martin Luther and John Calvin, both considered radical reformers had challenged the belief in saints, miracles, the number of the sacraments, the Episcopal organization of the church, and above all the nature of the Mass.
