Customer Reviews

Excellent course and podcast

I'm in my third year of EFM (Education for Ministry) in which we study the history of the Episcopal Church. This course provided a comprehensive political, cultural, and economic context for that study. Production value is excellent. Highly recommended.

Early Modern Europe: Religion and Society under the Tudors and Stuarts

I very much enjoyed listing to this series of lectures. I am a history buff to begin with and I always like to learn more. Professor Wrightson lecture style is easy to follow and enjoyable. I may even listen to the series again at some point.

Early Modern England

THis is the best lecture I have listened to. Prof. Wrightson has organized his material very well, includes many fascinating glimpses into this period and has a sense of humor. This course is very informative for understanding how our political system in the US has evolved. He is a great story teller making history so vivid.
