The Conclusion briefly restates the themes of the study. It highlights the range of business transacted in parliament, the vigour with which it was debated, and its impact on elite and non-elite subjects. Therefore it presents parliament as an effective point of contact, both for the crown and for its subjects. Rejecting Whig history, the Conclusion emphasizes the degree to which the new monarchy consolidated the standing of parliament. Lastly, it stresses the significance of this period in establishing the groundwork for the break with Rome and for parliamentary supremacy.
