This chapter offers a thorough examination and critique of the emergent phenomenon of what will be called UK state Anglican multifaithism. If the Church of England is conducting a religious coronation, the issue of the coronation oaths and the form that they would take would be central to the religious and constitutional formalities. An understanding of political context is essential to comprehending the changing religious posture of the UK monarchy and the Church of England in the twenty-first century. The continuance of the requirement for the declaration of Protestant faith can be construed as part of the overall package of the Protestant succession and the establishment of the Church of England. The termination of the establishment of the Church of England could be promoted by a decision that the monarch should not be required to swear the oaths in support of Protestantism and church establishment in Scotland and the UK.
