    FWIW, this question has been answered at Christianity.SE so I suggest that it be closed here. Commented Apr 29, 2016 at 12:03

    It has not, yet, been selected as accepted, so why the rush to close here?

    Having been answered elsewhere is not a close reason for History.SE.

    I believe you mean prescribed - recommended ... as being beneficial, not proscribed - forbidden, especially by law. Commented Jun 10, 2016 at 23:27

The Act of Supremacy occurred in 1534. The first time ANY part of the Mass was said in English was in 1548, but I'm darned right now if I recall which part! I think it was the General Confession actually. The Book of Common Prayer was not used until 1549.
