Rituals of Power

Our latest exhibition is Rituals of Power which explores the religious beliefs and political motivations behind ceremonial displays of power; how images and objects such as seals are used to disseminate power; and how power has been contested and fought over during key periods of history through rarely seen objects, books, and manuscripts from the Society’s collections. 

Henry VIII: Defender of the Faith?

Our first exhibition: Henry VIII: Defender of the Faith? examines the private life and public persona of King Henry VIII; his personal and political motivations for obtaining the title of ‘defender’; and how these same motivations saw him shift from ‘defender’ to ‘adversary’, to become England’s most notorious King.
