Synopsis: This standard work, long out of print, discusses every English royal entry, festival, disguising, masque, and tournament, from the accession of Henry VII to the coronation celebrations of Elizabeth I. The study of court festivals, spectacle, and civic pageantry in Renaissance Europe has now developed into a major academic industry, so that the market for authoritative works on these themes extends far beyond the boundaries of conventional scholarly disciplines. Spectacle, Pageantry and Early Tudor Policy was a pioneering work and remains the only comprehensive and analytical treatment of its subject.
From the Back Cover: Sydney Anglo discusses every English royal entry, festival, disguising, masque, and tournament from the accession of Henry VII to the coronation celebrations of Elizabeth I. Based principally on primary sources, his study is analytical rather than descriptive. In 1969, when this book first appeared, the serious study of Renaissance court festivals and civic pageantry was in its infancy and - although the subject has since burgeoned - the volume of publications relevant to the early Tudors has been modest and largely confined to matters of detail. In this new edition, therefore, Professor Anglo discusses material published since 1969 in a preface where, as far as possible, the material is arranged according to the chronological and thematic order of the book. The original pagination and notes which have been regularly cited by scholars has thereby been retained. A bibliography of works cited in the text has been added, to facilitate the work of a new generation of students.
