Darren Oldridge, Professor of Early Modern History at the University of Worcester, presents a unique opportunity to hold and read books printed during the English Civil Wars.

The Commandery was the headquarters of the royalist forces in the Battle of Worcester, which ended the English Civil Wars in 1651. The voices of the age are preserved in the pages of these books: they describe “those miserable wars, ruins, and desolations wherein all bonds of religion, alliance and friendship were utterly destroyed”. The books, loaned for the first time from the Stuart Collection in The Hive, will be displayed as part of a talk on the origins and outcomes of this unparalleled conflict at The Commandery, reflecting on pamphlets, sermons, speeches and other testimonies printed at the time.
