Professor Darren Oldridge: The Royal Martyr in the English Revolution

Saturday 29 April, 2 – 3pm | The Commandery

The execution of Charles I was the most radical and divisive moment in the English Revolution. It was also, perhaps, the most widely publicised.

Professor Darren Oldridge shares contemporary printed accounts of this extraordinary event and considers its impact on seventeenth-century society.

Darren Oldridge is Professor of Early Modern History at the University of Worcester.
