In this episode of the History of the Papacy Podcast, we are joined by historian and author Simon Heffer, who discusses the mid-19th century in Britain. We examine the UK Corn Laws and the Chartist Movement, analyzing their relationship and impact on the British economy. We also discuss the role of tariffs in protecting British industry and the debate over free trade versus protectionism during this period. Furthermore, we explore the state of education in Britain during the mid-19th century and the impact of Thomas Arnold's ideas on education. Finally, we consider how Britain avoided the political upheaval of the Revolutions of 1848 and the reasons for its relative stability during this period, including its economic and social changes. Join us for this fascinating discussion on the birth of modern Britain, based on Simon Heffer's book "High Minds: Victorians and the Birth of Modern Britain." #HistoryPodcast #BritishHistory #VictorianEra #RevolutionsOf1848 #EconomicHistory #EducationReform #Tariffs #FreeTrade #Protectionism #ChartistMovement Today’s Guest: Simon Heffer, Author of “High Minds: The Victorians and the Birth of Modern Britain” You can learn more about the History of Papacy and subscribe at all these great places: email: The History of the Papacy on YouTube: Get Your History of the Papacy Podcast Products Here: Help out the show by ordering these books from Amazon!
