The Church of England is the established (i.e. state) church in England and the mother church of the Anglican Communion. It originated in the councils between church and state throughout the Middle Ages, culminating in the Act of Supremacy issued by Henry Vlll in 1534. This repudiated papal supremacy and declared the King to be the supreme head of the Church in England.
