Fiction set about 2000. The Church of England will encompass most Christian groups in England and will be more democratic. The church has been disestablished, but there is a movement to have it re-established. New saints include Thomas More (1478-1535), who was actually canonized twenty years later by the Roman Catholic Church, and John Ball (c. 1338-81), the English Lollard priest involved in the Peasant’s Revolt of 1381 (See 1886-87 Morris). The church stresses a balanced life, including a healthy sex life. There is a description of a cathedral, which includes chapels for different groups within the faith, including a Chapel of Our Lady of Health and a Chapel of Santa Claus, for children.
