Henry VIII was a man of many passions and pursuits, and during his life he made maps, engaged in the sporting life, and was known to dabble in religious matters in a fashion that would have widespread ramifications. The British Library has created this fine online exhibit gallery to complement an in situ exhibit on this 16th century monarch. The materials on the site are divided into seven sections, including "The Great Matter", "Musician, sportsman, worshipper", and "Militarist and mapmaker". Visitors might do well to start with "The Great Matter", as it offers a nice selection of primary documents related to Henry's struggle to divorce Katherine of Aragon so that he might be able to marry Anne Boleyn. It's worth noting that visitors can zoom in and out within each digitized object. Moving on, the "Interactive" feature allows users to read notes that Henry himself added to three key documents created during his reign.
