Ch. 14 The Reformation 18


The second podcast. I actually really like this one, even though it concerns one of, in my opinion, the most boring topics in European History: the Protestant Separation from the Catholic Church. Not that it was a boring time, but the chapter itself is pretty dull. You will hear about more corrupt popes, good old Henry “Chopped off my wives’ heads” VIII, and some pretty corrupt political dealings. Somewhat religious, and definitely bizarre, this is the Reformation…

    O and just a mnemonic I learned for the fate of Henry VIII’s wives.

    Divorced, Beheaded, Died.
    Divorced, Beheaded, Survived.

    Anne Boleyn
    Jane Seymour
    Anne of Cleves

    Katherine Parr

    I’d assume by now you’re in college.
    So after high school what became of you?

    Thanks

    I am so telling the rest of my class about this!
    I have a feeling that if I listen to these before all the tests, I’ll stop failing!
    (Well, I’m not THAT bad, but a C is failing for me.)
    Thanks so much!

    We had a great time learning history again!

    We love the intensity in your eyes, but not as much as your wifebeater!

    All the girls in here right now are turned on, but none as much as Andrew……..

    hi hank – i just found this {chapter 14} as i am gone alot. loved it!! you do a very articulate narrative, and weave all the various elements of history together in a fine manner. i’m also very interested in history, and have just finished a trilogy – 500 pages each. the author, phillipa gregory, uses history/fictionalized to create mesmerizing tales. in one of the books of the trilogy, “the other boleyn girl” the author catalogs the era of the meglomanic, king henry the 8th. hank, you do your parents proud, and for sure you will go far in this world. love, auntie anne

    Hi Hank,

    Nice job! I really enjoyed the Reformation podcast ! I enjoyed hearing your ‘grown up’ voice. It is hard to believe you are a SENIOR!

    Next chapter is about a Pope who thinks God is his armor – now we have a President who thinks the same thing!

    We miss you guys and think of you often. Give my love to Maggie and your Mom and Dad.

    Take care and keep up the good work!
