The Progresses, Pageants, and Entertainments of Queen Elizabeth I

Excerpt

This volume of essays has grown out of work undertaken on the University of Warwick's John Nichols Research Project, for which a new edition of Nichols's seminal Progresses and Public Processions of Queen Elizabeth (London, 1788–1823) is being prepared for publication by Oxford University Press. Seven of the essays in this collection were first presented as papers at the Elizabethan Progresses Conference, held at the Shakespeare Centre in Stratford-upon-Avon in April 2004, and organized under the auspices of the Nichols Project and Warwick's AHRB (now AHRC) Centre for the Study of Renaissance Elites and Court Cultures. The Conference received generous support from the British Academy and the University of Warwick's Humanities Research Centre.

Our deepest thanks are due to Dr Elizabeth Clarke, Director of the Nichols Project; to Professors Julian Gardner and Steve Hindle, successive Directors of the AHRC Centre for the Study of Renaissance Elites and Court Cultures; to Professor Michael Whitby, Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the University of Warwick; and to the members of the Steering Committee of the Nichols Project, in particular Professor Bernard Capp, Dr H. Neville Davies, Mr Julian Pooley, and Dr Sarah Ross. We would like to express our sincere gratitude to Dr Margaret Shewring and Professor J. R. Mulryne, former Directors of the Nichols Project and of the AHRC Centre, respectively. The Nichols Project was conceived and initiated by Dr Shewring and Professor Mulryne; without their scholarly expertise, commitment, and vision, this publication would not have been possible. We would also like to thank the Arts and Humanities Research Council for its generous financial support of the Nichols Project. Finally, we are indebted to Andrew McNeillie, Val Shelley, Tom Perridge, Christine Rode, and Elizabeth Robottom of Oxford University Press for their unfailing patience and support in bringing this volume to completion and to Lawrence Green for compiling the index.
