Dr Tom Hamilton
Sample Lecture – France in the Reign of Henry IV, 1589-1610
Tom Hamilton is a Junior Research Fellow at Trinity College, University of Cambridge. He works on the social, cultural, and religious history of early modern France and Europe. Currently he is finishing his first book, A Storehouse of Curiosities: Pierre de L’Estoile and his World in the Wars of Religion. It gives a new account of France’s troubles from the perspective of an extraordinary Parisian diarist and collector, Pierre de L'Estoile (1546-1611), asking what it was like to live through the civil wars, how people found out about events, and how they remembered them.
