Education in the early Tudor Period Q&A

Students ask me questions about education in the early Tudor period and I try to answer them:

  • Would most men at the time have wanted their wives educated?
  • I studied Italian Humanism last term and found that women did better there in terms of individual cases of respected educated women. Why do you think that the cultural climate was so different than England?
  • Were the views we’ve talked about in class about education of women across Europe or was it strictly in England?
  • Aside from reinscribing women within a domestic role, was the humanist educational project beneficial to women of the time?
  • Where did Catholicism and Protestantism sit regarding the teaching of women and its effects?
  • Did women receive the same education as men?
