  The Grand Remonstrance 1641
Drafted by Pym and his supporters between August and November 1641, the Grand Remonstrance was a long, wide-ranging document that listed all the grievances perpetrated by the King's government in Church and State since the beginning of his reign.
The Remonstrance called for the setting up of an Assembly of Divines, nominated by Parliament, to supervise reform of the Church, and it demanded that the King's ministers should first be approved by Parliament.
The Remonstrance was presented to the King on 1 December 1641.
