The disorders described in Chapter 1 provided much of the impetus for the imposition of a reform programme on the English Catholic community. There was a consensus that some mechanism was needed to produce order and discipline in a region with the makings of an organized Church but no formal structures for governing it. An attempt by clergy who opposed the Society of Jesus and the positions and principles that it was taken to endorse and represent tried to set up self-regulating clerical associations in England. This proposal was overtaken by further disharmony, notably in the flagship college in Rome.
