Unique Days Time Location Instructor


Course Description

This lecture course explores the most significant political, religious social, economic and cultural developments in sixteenth-century England. The main themes of the course are the development of the modern state, the Protestant Reformation, the emergence of a capitalist society, and the growth of political and religious divisions during the reigns of Queen Mary I (1553-1558) and Queen Elizabeth I (1558-1603). The lectures are topical and therefore do not follow a strict chronological order. Many of the lectures are slide-illustrated.
