Is it treason to believe the ‘wrong’ thing? In this session students will explore consequences of religious turmoil during the reign of Elizabeth I.
Students will investigate the spaces used as prison cells, looking for signs of prisoners’ treatment, their beliefs, and their methods of potential escape.
Through the unique conditions in which Elizabethan religious prisoners lived and died, students will meet the real people affected by the shifting tides of religion during this turbulent Tudor period.
