After Henry VIII’s death in 1547, the pendulum in England swung violently: radical Protestantism under the boy King Edward VI was followed by Mary Tudor’s attempt to re-impose her Roman Catholic faith. Elizabeth’s accession in 1558 brought stability to a troubled realm and ushered in a great age – that of Raleigh and Drake, Spenser and Shakespeare – but also an age in which the nation had to fight for its life against the might of the Spanish global empire.

Tutor – John Stevens
A lawyer by profession until my retirement in 2013, I have a lifelong interest in history and an enthusiasm to communicate and share this interest by both the spoken and written word.
My interests are wide and include in particular the Stuart era in Britain and nineteenth century English and European political history.
I have also published work, and lectured on, aspects of Bristol history in the period 1800-1850.
