Life At Henry VII’s Court.

While reading through an article published in History Today on line, I found a link to this highly interesting article (“Life At Henry VII’s Court”), about Henry VII’s attitude towards the Renaissance, and Humanist Learning.

 

Although written almost forty years ago, it cites many primary sources, and uses contemporary information to shed light on the cultural activities at the English Court between 1485 – 1509. Well worth a read if you have ten minutes to spare!

 

Unfortunately, however, the original article I was reading spun King Henry’s interest in all things artistic and learned so that it appeared in a rather more negative light. It being intended as a rebuttal of Tucker’s essay. I’ll also post a link to that (“Learning To Be  A Tudor”).
