English King And German Commoner: An Exploration Of Sixteenth Century Clothing And Identity, Bradley Dale Moore Aug 2012

Henry VIII (1491-1547) of England will be compared and contrasted with Matthäus Schwarz (1496-1574), a commoner from Augsburg, Germany. Tudor will represent how identity can be created for others, particularly through legislation and courtly life; while Schwarz' own words will assist in the exploration of the identity of the individual.
