Edward VI’s death in July, 1553, signalled the end of the London Strangers’ Church. Many of the foreigners left England and returned to the continent, creating a significant opportunity for Lasco’s reform model. The French and Dutch refugees, along with a small group of their English supporters, took with them the Polish reformer’s ecclesiastical organization and rites, establishing new exile congregations following the London model in places such as Emden, Wesel, Strassburg, Frankfurt, Zurich and Geneva. This migration played a key role in spreading his ideas beyond England and contributing to the Forma ac ratio’s impact in Europe.
