Miniseries on Queen Mary I: Mary in Portraiture – Part Two (Queens Series)

Welcome to the Part Two of the second segment in a miniseries on the very much-maligned Queen Mary I of England. Thanks to PhD candidate Johanna Strong for orchestrating this entire series by teaming up with some of the leading researchers in the field. In this episode, our guest is PhD candidate, Peter Stiffel. Peter is researching contemporary Marian portraiture imagery at the University of Kent, and is the perfect guest for our current topic. Today, Peter and Johanna give us some brilliant insight into the image of Mary that was presented to the world.
