Take a whirlwind ride through the many lives of the many wives of Henry VIII, in this six-week seminar led by Lori Anne Ferrell, the John D. and Lillian Maguire Distinguished Professor in the Humanities at Claremont Graduate University. The course considers the historical significance, during a turbulent reign, of Henry's six wives: Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Catherine Howard, and Catherine Parr. It also explores their many afterlives—literary, dramatic, pictorial, cinematic, and even musical. The Huntington's holdings provide essential material evidence to enrich the conversation about this pivotal historical period.
