Photos – BBC4’s The Schooling of Thomas More’s Daughter

Here are some photos from an upcoming BBC4 documentary. It airs Thursday the 11th of August at 9pm…

The intellectual forces at work in the Tudor era ensured it was a pivotal period for children’s education. Historian Dr Helen Castor reveals how the life and education of Margaret More, daughter of Thomas More, tell a story of the transforming power of knowledge. As a child in Tudor England, and educated to an exceptionally high level, Margaret embodies the intellectual spirit of the age – an era which embraced Humanism, the birth of the Church of England and the English Renaissance. This film reveals what a revolutionary intellectual spirit Margaret More was and how the ideas that shaped her education helped change the cultural life of England forever.
