How and why, did a group of Catholic conspirators attempt to kill King James and his family, destroy Parliament in a huge explosion, and overthrow the Church of England? How did England respond to this failed plot? And how did the memory of the Gunpowder Treason become a permanent feature of the English calendar? David Cressy, professor emeritus at Ohio State University, offers answers to these questions and more. This talk is part of R-MC’s five-part series about the European Reformation.  Free and open to the public.
