Edmund Grindal is elected Archbishop of Canterbury. However, within
two years he was suspended from the jurisdictional functions of the
role, after a dispute with Elizabeth I over meetings of Puritan
clergy known as 'prophesyings'. While the Queen wanted to suppress
these completely, Grindal was more sympathetic to their cause and
would have preferred merely to supervise them. The dispute was
never fully solved before his death in 1583.
