The English Reformation: A religious revolution

The English ReformationHistorian: Toni Mount
Units: 5
Price: $25
This five-unit course examines the Reformation of the Church in England, beginning during the reign of King Henry VIII in the 1520s and continuing to influence events well into the seventeenth century and beyond. The differing attitudes to religion were one of the main causes of the English Civil War of the 1640s and even, indirectly, the Troubles in Ireland of the 1970s. What began as a king's disappointment with the pope's refusal to oblige him overturned the English belief system that had been in place for centuries. In this course, we will consider how subsequent monarchs dealt with the changing situation that confronted them but, more importantly, how these religious upheavals affected the lives of the ordinary English people.

I greatly enjoyed taking Everyday Life of Medieval Folk from Medieval courses. The 20 modules cover a wide range of interesting topics and detail many fascinating people and facts.
Each module is written in an easy to follow style and filled with so many wonderful tidbits of medieval daily life and the end of module quiz is a great way to test your knowledge of what your learning.
I highly recommend this course to anyone with an interest in learning more about the medieval time period. I found I learned a lot more about the time period than I previously knew. Thank you, Toni.

Thank you for letting me try out this course during your trial period. I really enjoyed all of the modules (20!) and learned a lot of things I didn't know before. Toni Mount's research is great, and Claire Ridgway's reading made learning a joy.
