From Holbein to Byrd : The Art, Music and Architecture of England's Reformation Century Mark Cottle MA Thursday 30 November 2017

Special Interest Day with lecture (part I) before lunch and lecture (part II) after lunch

Venue: The Best Western Passage House Hotel, Kingsteignton

Speaker: Mark Cottle MA

Henry VIII's break with Rome and the Reformation that followed in his successors' reigns resulted in a period of huge political and religious turbulence and change.  Similarly, in cultural terms, this Tudor century appears dramatically different from the late medieval world that preceded it.  The airm of these two lectures is to tract developments in art, architecture and music in order to capture something of the depth, breadth and vitality of this cultural New World

Born in the Scilly Isles, educated at Truro School in Cornwall and a graduate of Birmingham University with a Masters Degree in late Medieval History, Mark has spent over 20 years lecturing in Anglo-Saxon, Medieval and Tudor history in further and higher education.

Cost: £35 for 2 course lunch with coffee/tea/mints

There will be two lectures on this study day:  Part I - 10.45 to 11.45am and  Part II - 2.00 to 3.00pm

Contact Mrs Augusta Kyte, Study Day Organizer on 01626 775495 if you would like to reserve a place.
