Person Quizzes & Trivia

This test is going to consist of multiple choice and fill in the blank questions. This test covers all the information from the beginning of the reformation to Henry VIII. NOTE: For fill in the blank, you must provide the number after a person's name such as Henry VIII, not just Henry. At the end, there will be 5 bonus questions worth 2 points each. These questions will not be very detailed; they just require a detailed answer. Some questions will be on Calvinism. They say that they will not be scored, but I will add points to your test if you get it correct.
