HIST 3860 - Shakespeare’s England, 1450-1603


Surveys English history from the Wars of the Roses until the death of Queen Elizabeth I in 1603. During this period, England went from a country ravaged by internal war and depression to one characterized at home by peace, law and order, a rising prosperity, artistic and intellectual excellence, and abroad by war as its people and power spread beyond the shores of the British Isles. Major themes to be considered include the establishment of legal and social order in the wake of the Wars of the Roses; the Tudor ¿revolution in government; the Henrician and Protestant Reformations and their effects on English political, social, and cultural life; the economic disaster of the mid sixteenth century; overseas exploration; the flowering of English culture and the arts; war with Spain; relations with Scotland and Ireland; and the ways in which England was governed.
