Course Description

On Sunday 15 October 1536 a large rebel army assembled at York’s city gates, calling themselves ‘pilgrims’ in defiance of Henry VIII’s religious changes and flying the banner of the five wounds of Christ. This ‘Pilgrimage of Grace’ was one of the largest rebellions of the Tudor regime. Discover how and why these armies were raised, why the rebellion failed to achieve its aims, and the dire consequences of rebellion against the early Tudor state. It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King’s Manor.
