About The Course

What did it mean to live and die in Stuart England? From the experiences of diarists and writers to the role of plague searchers, medics and civic authorities. This four-week online course will tackle this question and more to explore key themes, such as – what did it mean to ‘die well’? How did early modern medical practitioners understand and treat disease? What role did the monarch play? And, how were death and disease expressed in art and literature
