Hi, I'm currently doing a school assignment on the Tudor-Stuart Law and Society/ Crime and Punishment in 7th form (age 17). I have came up with three questions to do my research on specifically during 1558~1667.
1. How were punishments for crime successful in maintaining social order in Tudor-Stuart England 1558~1667?
2. To what extent did men and women's criminal actions differ due to the different punishments in Tudor Stuart England 1558~1667?
3. How did the church have effect on the law and society in Tudor Stuart England 1558~1667?
I have already read materials on law courts and criminal trials and also watched documentarys, but I haven't found many specific cases during this time period and none based on differences in gender. The second question is a bit of a struggle to find information on.
Thank you so much for the help.
