Talks/Lectures
"How to Catch a Chameleon" Scottish History Lecture
Explore the political upheaval and fight for a Scottish monarch that marked the life of William Maitland, Secretary of Mary Queen of Scots. William Maitland of Lethington was one of the leading politicians of the sixteenth century, a prominent Scottish intellectual and diplomat — and a man composed of contradictions. Despite being one of the leaders of the Scottish Reformation, he became a loyal principal secretary to the Catholic Mary Queen of Scots and died defending Edinburgh Castle for her against the Protestant English. Known by contemporaries as a man of strong moral and political principles, he is thought to have masterminded the murders of Mary’s estranged husband, Henry Stuart Lord Darnley, and her Italian private secretary David Rizzo. In this talk, Professor Allinson will share her experiences so far in following Maitland’s trail not only through the archives, but also across muddy pastures, through medieval castles, streets and churches. Refreshments will be available for purchase. Doors open at 5:30PM.
