New exhibition created by CGU History seminar on Britain’s Wars of Religion

Special Collections at Honnold/Mudd owns a significant number of 17th century pamphlets, primary sources that are invaluable for scholarship and that form the highlight of this show. Using these pamphlets as documentary evidence, graduate students of Dr. Lori Anne Ferrell’s course “Britain’s Wars of Religion, 1642-1649” examine various aspects of Charles I’s life leading up to, and beyond, his execution. Categories considered are Charles as Exile, Charles as Traitor, Charles as Criminal, Charles as Absolute King, and Charles as Saint.
The exhibition will be on view November 24, 2008-January 30, 2009, in Honnold/Mudd Library.
In conjunction with the exhibition, a discussion and presentation of the pamphlets will take place as part of CGU’s History Forum Series, December 4, 2008 at 4:00 pm, in the Founders Room of the Honnold/Mudd Library.
The presentation is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.
