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.
