Event description

Description

Trials during the Reformation period commonly resorted to torture to extract information. Records from such trials have recently been used to inform a project about the beliefs of ordinary people in sixteenth-century Italy. In this talk, Dr Abigail Brundin considers the difficulties of analysing these kinds of sources, and what sort of historical ‘truths’ can be gained from such complex material.
