Dr George Gross was educated at King’s College London, studying Theology and specialising (in a final-year dissertation supervised by Dr David Crankshaw) in Tudor Coronations. This was followed by a Masters in Early Modern History, focussing on early Stuart Coronations, at the University of Cambridge. He completed a doctorate on later Stuart, Orange and Hanoverian coronations at King’s College London – also under Dr Crankshaw – with the title ‘‘The Lord’s Anointed’: British Coronations in Religious, Political and Social Contexts, c.1661–c.1714’, in April 2017.
Whilst a postgraduate student at King’s College London, Dr Gross has worked as a Graduate Teaching Assistant, lecturing and examining for modules on Reformation history and early modern religious/political thought. He is a co-convener at ‘The Religious History of Britain, 1500–1800’ seminar held at the Institute of Historical Research in London, where he presented a paper in 2014. Other papers have been delivered at a symposium held at Westminster Abbey (which he co-organized) in 2015 and discussed at a seminar held by University College London at the British Academy in 2016.
