In the Spotlight

  1. Henry VIII, King of England (1491-1547) ruled an island kingdom about the size of Pennsylvania inhabited by fewer than 3 million people 500 years ago, and yet he remains instantly recognizable to this day, his barrel-chested and bejeweled figure immortalized by the brush of Hans Holbein the Younger.  Great Courses Filmed Lecture Series: Henry VIII begins April 5 and runs through May.  Tuesdays at 1:00.
