“The World of Henry VIII: Understanding the Tudors”
December 8, 2023
9a – 2:30p
Anthony di Battista, Lecturer, Department of History, Rutgers University
The history of Henry VIII’s search for an heir continues to fascinate students, artists, and writers nearly 400 years after his death. This seminar will focus on understanding the larger Tudor world and the forces that shaped Henry and his children’s actions as they sought to remake the English Church and the English State. The seminar will also focus on the clash between Thomas More and Thomas Cromwell and the ways in which that clash has been portrayed in literature and film.
