Contextual Lecture: Thomas Cromwell: getting him right

With Professor Sir Diarmaid MacCulloch

Professor Sir Diarmaid MacCulloch introduces his ground-breaking biography of the self-made statesman who married his son to King Henry VIII's sister-in-law, reshaped Tudor England and Ireland, and sent the kingdom on a Protestant course for centuries. He examines the myths that have developed around Cromwell’s career, and discusses the motivations behind his actions during a meteoric career, personal, political and religious.

MacCulloch is professor of the history of the church at St Cross College, University of Oxford and has written extensively on Tudor England.

Part of Contextual Lecture Series: Prospects and Prophecies.
