Module content and teaching

Principal aims

The module will focus on the experience of war in sixteenth-century France from the perspective of local communities as well as the crown and the nobility. It will draw on a wide variety of contemporary sources in English translation including correspondence, memoirs, legislation, petitions and prints. The aim is to develop an understanding of the circumstances which led to and perpetuated civil war and why repeated attempts to establish peaceful confessional co-existence failed. Students will develop the critical skills to engage with current historiographical debates, and be given the opportunity to write an extended piece of assessed work using both primary and secondary sources.
