Miniseries on Queen Mary I: Mary’s Legacy

Welcome to our 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, Johanna’s guest is Eilish Gregory, and they’ll be discussing Mary I’s legacy in the late seventeenth century.

Eilish is a postdoctoral fellow at Durham University and focuses her research on Catholicism and queenship in the early modern period. Her book, Catholics during the English Revolution, 1642-1660: Politics, Sequestration and Loyalty, was published last year and she’s recently had a chapter published in Mary I in Writing, entitled “Mary I During the Popish Plot and Exclusion Crisis: Memory and Catholic Remembrance”.
