On this day in Tudor history, 11th May 1537, Blessed John Rochester and Blessed James Walworth, two Carthusian monks from the London Charterhouse, met their ends in York after being condemned for treason.
In a five-year period, eighteen Carthusian monks were executed, but why? What had King Henry VIII got against these men of God? What happened?
You may remember that back in September 2016 I visited London Charterhouse, former home of the Carthusian martyrs of Henry VIII’s reign and then of Baron North in Elizabeth I’s reign. I did a Claire Chat’s video on it the property and its history, and then shared some photos with you…
In this week’s Claire Chat’s video I talk about my recent visit to London Charterhouse and the history of the site. I hope you enjoy the talk and the photos.
