My thesis fuses several scholastic and intellectual interests that have been a part of me for many years now. History, religion, and literature are all fields I contemplated studying seriously. Furthermore, examining the motivations and reasons behind actions - a more psychological slant - has been an angle that has accompanied my fixation with these three fields. In Tudor England, I found the glorious intersection of these four paths, and I think what captivated me more than anything about this thesis, was the way in which they all worked together to create an overarching paradigm for a whole era.
