When the Fat Thief abolished the monasteries and monastic cathedral chapters, the relationships between them and the parishes were left in place, and the Novi Homines of the glorious Church of England turned them into a form of tradable property. What old-fashioned Christians used to call Simony.
I can't help sniggering at your Fat Thief explanation. Now the C of E is closing sown some it's churches. It can't quite decide who to turn them over to, perhaps the Muslims? Doh! Hows about the Church ya stole em from???
