Adultery and politics in Jacobean London

Windsor Building Auditorium

Professor Thomas Cogswell
University of California, Riverside

17th century London was a dangerous place: if contemporary sources can be trusted, the women were given to witchcraft while the men were shameless seducers.  Of course, the accusers often had their motives. Drawing on newly discovered legal documents including dozens of eyewitness depostions, distinguished historian Thomas Cogswell will illuminate the sexual passions, court intrigue, and legal manoeuverings of the last years of James I.

Admission free but booking is essential.
