F307 Fall 2019 Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots: A Woman of Passion
Thursdays, 9:40–11:05, Oct. 24–Nov. 14
Instructor: Elisabeth Wolpert
The course will examine the life of a lovely, intelligent, charismatic monarch, whose main mistake was to act first and think later. Ruled by her passions, she made the worst decisions at the most crucial moments of her existence. The course will provide details of her education, three marriages, exiles, religious attachment to the Catholic faith, and death.
Elisabeth Wolpert was born and educated in France, and her doctoral thesis dealt with 16th century French literature. She has taught several OLLI courses.
