It is well known that the North was slov to accept the religious changes. This is of course, largely proved by the rebellion of 1569. It is interesting however, to try to find signs of this conservative attitude before 1569 , and to to be able to show whether the rebellion seems merely the signal for the display of a long pent-up hostility to the changes among the people generally, or whether i t was simply the results of the schemes of ambitious leaders, or of those with a social grievance, working momentarily upon them. It is also interesting to see whether this conservative attitude was apparent in a clinging to old forms and opposition to the new, or whether the people appeared to submit to the changes. The extent t o which the doctrinal changes were accepted in the North,. can be gathered in part from a scruting of the wills of the periods These at first generally open with a commendatory clause followed by a request f o r the prayers of the Virgin and Saints, Whilst under Henry VIII invocation of the Saints was permitted by the Ten Articles of 1536 ( 1 ) , and by the Bishops' Book of 1537 , both were careful to guard against any implied worship of the Saints, the latter stating that although the Saints might be asked to be intercessors, such addresses to them should not be similarto the adoration rendered to God ( 2 ) . This attitude was also visible in the Royal Injunctions of 1538 (3) o In the Litany in the Prayer Book of 1549, however, the requests to Saints for their prayers were omitted, and in 1549 Parliament condemned such invocation (4)
