Question from Sarah - Marian exiles

Were the Marian exiles religiously tolerant?

Interesting question. Are you asking if the Marian exiles were tolerant of other religions once they left England? If this is your question then yes and no. Some were and some weren't.

When the Marian exiles returned during Elizabeth's reign some of them were much less tolerant than Elizabeth herself. She frequently banished from her presence those she felt were too puritanical.
