New Worlds, Lost Worlds: The Tudor Monarchy 1485-1603


Value half unit


Dr. Anna Whitelock


Taught through weekly lectures and weekly follow-up seminars


2-hour exam (100%)

The reigns of the Tudor monarchs saw fundamental changes in the power and influence of the state, in religious beliefs and practices and in the economy and society. This course considers the importance of the sixteenth century in the changing nature of political power and explores how the exercise of monarchical authority was shaped by the politics of personal monarchy, royal personality, minority, female monarchy and religion. England is the principal focus of study although Wales, Scotland and Ireland are also discussed where relevant to the main narrative.
