Having signified her high displeasure to Baro for raising the theological dust, she showed scarcely less of it to Whitgift for venturing to pronounce on the points at issue by virtue of his authority as primate. She forbade him to publish the Lambeth Articles and threatened him, only half in jest, with the penalties of praemunire for clerical encroachment on royal authority, through which her father had brought down Cardinal Wolsey.

In regions with a large infusion of puritan clergy and laity, the practice survived of holding ‘exercises’, which were meetings of neighbouring ministers in which the more proficient tutored the less in the expounding of the Scriptures, before a lay audience. This usage descended from what had more usually been called ‘prophesyings’ in Elizabeth’s earlier years, and which she (who distrusted preaching) had disliked so much that she had suspended Whitgift’s predecessor Archbishop Grindal from all his episcopal functions when he bravely refused to prohibit them.

It was a golden opportunity to extend the policy of plantation to Ulster. The original plans were quite small-scale and made generous provision for those Irish who lived peaceably, but there was a minor rising in 1608, unnecessarily provoked by the governor of Derry, and James and the privy council panicked. The revised plan opened almost all the six counties of Armagh, Cavan, Coleraine (renamed Londonderry), Donegal, Fermanagh, and Tyrone to English and Scottish settlers, allocating at the most a quarter of the territory to the native Irish.
