Lecture no. 28 from the course: A History of England from the Tudors to the Stuarts
Taught by Professor Robert Bucholz | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses
The problems that James I inherits from the Tudors will eventually overwhelm the early Stuart state and produce the British Civil Wars. This lecture introduces five enduring areas of tension—sovereignty, financing the government, war and foreign policy, religion, and local control—with a focus on the first two.
