Event Details

This talk examines the importance of England’s support for the Huguenots during the French Wars of Religion. In particular, it looks at how Marlowe presents the Huguenot leader, Navarre, in The Massacre at Paris and what this portrait reveals about contemporary religious and political divisions in England. These include differing attitudes among Londoners to Navarre’s military campaigns and towards French refugees in the capital.
