Summary
Few periods of British history generate such deep interest as the reign of Elizabeth I, from 1558 to 1603. The individuals and events of that era continue to be popular subjects for contemporary literature and film, and Elizabethan drama, poetry, and music are studied and enjoyed everywhere by students, scholars, and the general public. Historical Dictionary of the Elizabethan World provides its readers with clear definitions and descriptions of people, events institutions, ideas, and terminology, not limited to the Elizabethan period, but relating in some significant way to this eventful era. Wide-ranging in scope, this unique dictionary takes a broad transatlantic approach to the period, including relevant individuals and terms from Irish, Scottish, Welsh, American, and western European history. More than 450 alphabetical entries cover art and architecture, finance and government, law and parliament, education, literature, religion, science, and more. Also included are a chronology of significant events during this period, nine maps detailing places of interest, family trees and genealogies of the English royal family, lists of European monarchs of the 16th century, selected historical fiction and motion pictures with Tudor and Elizabethan characters and settings, selected websites for Tudor and Elizabethan topics, and a detailed bibliography
