The Edwardian Legacy, 1560–1604
Elizabeth I's reign experienced the establishment of an Anglican via media or middle way between Rome and Geneva. This middle way perspective asserts that the excesses of the Edwardian rule were lessened and a moderate style of prayer book protestantism based on parliamentary statute and royal supremacy was constructed. Despite Elizabeth's efforts to create a new view instead of just restoring the Edwardian legacy, iconoclasm occurred once again. Also, as Elizabeth's reign went on, modifications that Elizabeth attempted to introduce in 1559 we gradually ignored. In line with these happenings, other issues that were ignored included the case of the location of communion tables and receiving of legal confirmation in the Jacobean canons.
