Most polls on these forums have a joke Hasselhof option. It's just a weird little quirk.

Usually when the questions aren't enough to fill out the 10 max options. Which isnt the case here.

Speaking of, what option would Church of England fall under? That's what I used to be nominally, way back when.

Are people really part of a religion they are born into, or do they have to discover it for themselves ?

In the simplest possible terms?

YES.

Now, going back on topic, Mariology may or may not still be a something to discuss, owing to New Year's Day being what Catholics like myself know as the Feast of Maria, Mater Dei. Or have we already moved past discussing the Theotokos?

Is it right to assume the Anglican Church a sort of love child between the Roman Catholic Church and Lutheranism?

IIRC, the reformed parts of Anglican doctrine were also influenced by Calvin and Zwingli. So, more like a lovechild between Catholicism and Protestantism in general.

Did Calvinism include a hierarchy of bishops as well?

Yes, which is why Anglicanism does seem to have Roman Catholic traits.
(I mean, the Orthodox Catholic Church also has a hierarchy).

Well, also slightly political, since Catherine's Nephew, Charles I of the HRE was holding the Pope hostage, despite Henry using Leviticus 20:19 as a reason for annulment.

I was wondering how much of Anglicanism remained Catholic, especially in relations to the hierarchy to keep the new religion afloat in it's infancy, while also moving towards Protestantism.

Oh. I thought you were asking what branch of protestantism influenced Anglicanism, or something along those lines.

Lutheranism and Reformed. The via media is not between reformed and catholicism (this is revisionism from the Tractarians) it was the middle ground between the Lutheran theology and practice and Reformed theology and practice.
