HIS 234 - Tudors and Stuarts, 1485-1707

4 credits (Fall or Spring)
Tudor and Stuart monarchs were some of the most intriguing characters to walk on the world’s stage. Their reigns were characterized by major changes in British and Irish political, religious, economic, and cultural life; these transformations shaped the politics and denominational diversity of the modern, Anglophone world. Students will examine manuscripts, rare books, portraits, and architecture, intervene in major historical debates about the period, and recreate an evening in Elizabeth I’s court.

Prerequisite: HIS 100  or second-year standing.
Instructor: Pollnitz
