1     Caption: Canterbury Cathedral, the cathedral of the Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, the religious leader of the Church of England
2     In the United States today, we believe in the separation of church and state. The government makes rules about certain things, but when it comes to religion, people have freedom of choice.
3     It wasn't always that way. Just a few hundred years ago, church and state were combined in many places.
4     The Anglican Church in England is one example.
5     Like much of Europe, England was a Christian country for centuries. There was only one Christian church, the Catholic Church, and most Europeans belonged to it. The Church of England was simply the branch of the church that happened to be in England, but it was all the same church. The Pope was in charge, and everybody was expected to follow his rules.
