Elizabeth's Ghost: The Afterlife of the Queen in the Stuart Era
Mar 02, 2015
During the reigns of the Stuart monarchs, the image of Elizabeth was used not only to comment on current affairs, but also as a powerful example of what women could accomplish. A range of sources will be examined to further understand the impact that Elizabeth had in the century after her death in terms of politics and religion - and the perceptions about powerful women.
