I stand corrected. He killed St Thomas More and St John Fisher for treason, not for heresy. The overwhelming majority of those he had executed were Lutherans, Calvinists and Anabaptists. In fact, under his Six Articles, denial of Transubstantiation was an offence punishable by death. The statement I was actually replying to was that there was hardly a priest left alive when he finished his 'reign of terror', which is patently false. The persecution of Catholics qua Catholics did not begin until the reign of his thoroughly protestant son, Edward VI.
