On this day in Tudor history, 5th October 1553, the first Parliament of Mary I's reign met.
This Parliament repealed the "treason act" of Mary's half brother Edward VI's reign, passed an act declaring Mary's legitimacy, repealed the religious legislation of Edward's reign, and reinstated the Mass in Latin, celibacy of the clergy and ritual worship. It was as if the reformation of Edward VI's reign had never happened.
