During the 1600's Christianity was split into main streams, ie, Catholicism, which was discriminated against, and Protestantism. The latter was mainly expressed through the Church of England, but there were a growing number of other denominations and streams, such as Puritanism also. These divides were the cause of some of the most notable events of the 17th century, such as the Civil War between Parliament and the Royalists, and also the Gunpowder plot.
