70-Naughty Nuns

Naughty nuns have an alliterative ring to them, but what kind of trouble did they really get up to in Renaissance England? In this episode of history podcast Rude Tudors, literary historian Liz Rodriguez and nerdy laywoman Nicole Keating explore these Catholic figures in a Protestant country. Learn about the Nun of Watton, who experienced a miracle disappearing pregnancy, and the Nun of Lisbon, whose magical tricks give David Blaine a run for his money. Find out the answers to: How were nuns depicted in light of the Protestant Reformation? What truths can we learn from untrue stories about marginalized women? Join this raunchy jaunt through the period of Henry VIII, Elizabeth I, and Shakespeare. Connect at 872-302-RUDE, RudeTudors,com, [email protected], Facebook, Twitter
