This course will examine the process of reformation and of the religious beliefs and practices within the Tudor realms of England, Ireland and Wales. It will employ thematic and chronological approaches and draw upon many types of historical evidence to investigate and compare the experiences of the Welsh, the Irish and the English during the sixteenth century as they encountered religious change.
The course will apply varied historical approaches to the understanding of the Reformations in the three countries within the Tudor state. In particular it will emphasise the assessment of different types of historical evidence. It will look at England, Wales and Ireland in turn and at key themes that spread across the Tudor state such as language and literacy; local reformations; patterns of worship and religious identities.
Student Learning Experience Information:
The course has a weekly lecture and seminar, each lasting an hour, which provides opportunities for interaction and discussion. Every weekly seminar has a schedule of secondary reading and historical evidence associated with it. Every week each student will choose one item of historical evidence and post an online comment upon that item and discuss it during the seminar. Each student will be required to write one online report on a secondary reading and present that to the relevant seminar. Students will demonstrate their achievement of the intended learning outcomes in their assessed written work, examination and through their participation in class discussions.
