How Kateryn Parr Championed the Reformation

Henry VIII's sixth wife Kateryn Parr was a scholar and a writer in her own right. She was one of the first English women to have works published under her own name, creating a new role as both queen and author, translating politically sensitive texts in collaboration with Henry and Thomas Cranmer.

In this episode of Not Just the Tudors, Prof. Suzannah Lipscomb meets Dr. Micheline White. Her discoveries also shed new light on Kateryn Parr’s influence on the future Queen Elizabeth I, the English Reformation and its ongoing legacy.

This episode was edited by Joseph Knight and produced by Rob Weinberg.
