About this Lecture

Lecture

In this module, we consider the question, ‘Was there an educational revolution under Elizabeth?’, focusing in particular on: (i) the changes in the educational landscape under Elizabeth, especially the foundation of 130 new grammar schools; (ii) the impact of Renaissance humanism on education in England; (iii) the impact of the Reformation on education in England; (iv) the kinds of things that were studied at school; (v) the extent to which ‘ordinary’ people could read and write in Elizabethan England; and (vi) the education available to women in this period.
