James I and the English Witch Hunts

Tracy Borman presents the story of witches in the turbulent period of Stuart England.

The Charterhouse is delighted to welcome back acclaimed historian, author and broadcaster Tracy Borman for our September Online Lecture. In this talk, inspired by her non-fiction book, Witches, as well as her fiction trilogy, The King’s Witch, Tracy will take us into the turbulent world of the early Stuart court. After inheriting the throne from the last Tudor monarch, Elizabeth I, James VI and I waged a war on witches and Catholics alike. It was not long before a dark campaign to destroy both King and Parliament gathered pace, culminating in the Gunpowder Plot.
