Henry VIII annulment letter revealed

On the 500th anniversary of the coronation of England's King Henry VIII, the Vatican has permitted scholars a look at the letter requesting an annulment of his marriage to Catherine of Aragon. The Vatican denies any connection between the two events.

The letter, to Pope Clement VII, was dated July 13, 1530. A facsimile of the document and other scholarly texts will be made available for viewing.
