Tue., Apr 29Greenlaw Lecture Series
The Tudors

Lecturer: Barry A. Greenlaw


The Age of the Tudors represents a pivotal period in English history. In little more than a century, the nation was transformed from a medieval kingdom to a modern state, from an insignificant offshore island to a major world power. Five monarchs, three Kings and two Queens guided the English through, perhaps, its most important century - the New World was discovered, the Anglican Church was born, London became the largest city in Europe, and the Renaissance arrived, altering the very nature of its arts and design. Once regarded as a cultural desert, England, led by Shakespeare and its great universities, established a growing reputation for scholarship and literature.

Come meet the Tudors, Henry VII, Edward VI, Mary, and of course the larger than life (literally) Henry VIII, and the culminating reign of Elizabeth, the Virgin Queen.


The Tudors is a 10-week course, offered three times each week on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 9:30-11:30 a.m., and on Tuesday evenings from 7:00-9:00 p.m. The course will begin February 18-19, and will end on April 29-30. There will be a one week break April 22-23.


The fee for the Full Course is $200. You may, if you wish, register for either half {Sessions 1-5 or 6-10} for $125.

If you have questions or need further information, please call Barry Greenlaw at 713-781-9028 or email bagreenlaw@aol.com


Confirmation of Registration will be sent out a week before the first session.
