Henry VIII and His Six Wives

Course Overview

Teachers taking the class for CEU's will be required to take a short pre-test and post-test. This course will broaden and deepen your knowledge about Henry VIII and his six wives, early Tudor England, and the English Reformation in this six-week reading and discussion program! The class will meet two hours each week to discuss readings from Antonia Fraser's 'The Wives of Henry VIII,' excerpts from films and television programs about the Tudor dynasty, and examples of period art (especially portraits) and music. Participants may take the class for personal enrichment (i.e., strictly for personal enlightenment and entertainment) or for career enrichment with CEU's (for teachers). At each session the presenter will offer introductory remarks, but the primary emphasis will be on discussion of the main readings with full audience participation. The presenter will use portraits, film excerpts, and examples of Henrician music.
