Part of a series of 6 illustrated lectures ‘The Great Matter’ and Beyond: The English Reformation

Daughter of Katherine of Aragon, Henry VIII’s first wife, Mary Tudor was a devout Catholic. Her accession to the English throne began a long campaign attempting to return the country to Rome. She forged links in Europe, notably her marriage to Phillip of Spain, and abolished Edward’s laws in England. Famously called Bloody Mary her reign is perhaps best remembered for the burning of nearly 300 Protestant dissenters.

All workshops and lectures can be booked through Peterborough Museum on 01733 864663 or museum@vivacity-peterborough.com. Booking is essential for all workshops and strongly recommended for lectures.
