2020/21 Courses


Course Title: Origins of the English Civil War
Course Number: C2228443
Course Description: The purpose of this course is to provide an overview of the complex long- and short-term origins of the English Civil Wars across the three Stuart Kingdoms of England and Wales, Scotland, and Ireland. Our sessions will first identify key reasons why war began. We will then analyze how and why the working relationship between King and Parliament broke down and how the most contentious issues of the time, such as revenue and taxation, religion, and foreign policy, contributed to that breakdown. There are other key reasons for civil war, including (i) the impact of Personal Rule, (ii) the causes and consequences of a Scottish rebellion against an imposed prayer book and, (iii) the Long Parliament of 1640-42 in which a united opposition to the king fell apart and coalesced into two factions; the Royalists and the Parliamentarians.
