13. Were the Elizabethans more bloodthirsty or tolerant of violence on stage than we are? In addition to the visible bloodletting, there is endless discussion of past gory deeds. Offstage violence is even brought into view in the form of a severed head. It's almost as though such over-exposure is designed to make it ordinary. At the same time, consider the basic topic of the play, the usurpation of the crown of England and its consequences. These are dramatic events. They can support the highly

Assess the importance of Faction at the Court of Henry VIII 1509-1529 A faction is defined as being, “an alliance whose target is an individual, which operates by seeking to put pressure on the ruler and which sought to exploit the mechanisms of court.” Henry’s court contained a lot of faction because of his personal style of monarchy. When a king remained aloof from his court, it was difficult for people to have influence over him and so faction stagnated. For example, Henry VII had a very impe

Discuss two policies of Henry VIII which were a major departure from those of his father. Henry VII and his son Henry VIII were two very different monarchs who, despite being father and son, had very different characteristics and, consequently, two very different attitudes and methods of ruling. Henry VII is generally viewed as being an old man, a cautious, cold, calculating miser, a view enhanced by his (unflattering) 1505 portrait by Sittow. Henry VIII on the other hand is viewed as he was whe

The Hundred Years War was considered to be the last medieval war that played a significant role in English history.(Schwarz) The Hundred Years War was a series of wars fought between Great Britain and France with Burgundy playing a small role for the French. Although the conflict lasted over a century the war was broken intermittently by treaties and truces. (Goubert) There were more stalemates than actual battles. (Froissart) Actual fighting didn’t brake out until the mid 1300’s but the confli

“If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.” - Henry David Thoreau In 1967, Timothy Leary persuaded America’s youth to “tune in, turn on, and drop out.” Thousands of young adults literally heard the “far away music” and, to the dismay of their parents, marched away. America’s children grew their hair, burned their bras and draft cards and permanently changed their wa

Kkk The Elizabethan Age underwent a continuing crisis of religion that was marked by a deepening polarization of thought between the supporters of the recently established Protestant Church and the larger number of adherents to the Roman Catholic faith. Of these latter, Edmund Campion may be taken as the archetype. Well known as an Englishman who fled to the Continent for conscience's sake, he returned to England as a Jesuit priest, was executed by the English government in 1581 and was canonize

The English Reformation
The English Reformation The Protestant Reformation played an extraordinary part in European faith, culture, and politics. Even though the Reformation began in Germany in 1517 and spread throughout Europe very quickly, England remained Catholic for more than 15 years before crossing over to Protestantism. Henry VIII’s desire for a male heir precipitated the Protestant Reformation in England in 1527. In 1509 Henry married his first wife, Catherine of Aragon. She bore their first and only child, Pr

The Reformation originated from a trend in returning to the biblical days of Christianity and a renewal of morality. Unfortunately the Catholic religious leaders didn't share in the renewal of morality. The Renaissance popes were partially responsible for the decline of the church;however, it was the Church's past history
