Spring 2023: Descriptions of Special Topics and Seminar Courses

HIS 481, ST: Tudors

When Henry Tudor retrieved the crown from the vanquished Richard III on Bosworth Field he initiated one of the most fascinating dynasties in English history. His son, Henry VIII, in a desperate quest for a son and heir, would declare himself Supreme Head of the Church and marry the second of his six wives. We will examine in detail his tumultuous reign and those of his three children: Edward VI, who, still a child when his father died, was manipulated by unscrupulous men; Mary I, whose attempts to restore England to the Church of Rome earned her the sobriquet, “Bloody Mary”; and Elizabeth I, the “Virgin Queen,” who resolved to be dominated by no man, imprisoned and executed her cousin, Mary, Queen of Scots, and against whom the Spanish king launched the “invincible” armada.
