1. Magalhaes, Anderson. ""Insolite & inaudite feste": Le incoronazioni di Enrico di Valois nella cronaca dell'epoca (1574–75)" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Humboldt University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany, <Not Available>. 2019-09-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p751970_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: L'11 maggio 1573, il duca d'Angiò veniva proclamato re di Polonia, dove giunse all'inizio dell'anno seguente circondato da un folto seguito di circa 1.200 persone, al quale si aggiunse la cavalleria polacca composta da 3.000 soldati, che attendeva il nuovo sovrano ai confini del paese. L'incoronazione, svoltasi a Cracovia con il consueto sfarzo delle cerimonie di Stato, fu animata da danze «al modo polacco, francese, italiano, tedesco» e da «certi giochi molto dilettevoli, et salti bellissimi». Non meno fastose furono le feste per la sua incoronazione a re di Francia nel 1575, quando succedette al fratello Carlo IX, deceduto l'anno prima. Questo intervento si propone di analizzare l'apparato spettacolare e iconografico delle due incoronazioni dell'ultimo monarca della dinastia dei Valois attraverso le narrazioni offerte da cronisti del tempo, al fine di mettere in luce il valore storico, politico e religioso di tali festeggiamenti.

2. Adrian, John. "Performances of Power: Bristol, Queen Elizabeth, and the Entertainments of 1574" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Grand Hyatt, Washington, DC,, <Not Available>. 2019-09-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p524170_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: Elizabethan progresses are generally treated as occasions of royal performance. But they were also performative occasions for the cities and towns that were visited by Elizabeth and her retinue. This paper will examine the entertainments created for the queen’s 1574 visit to Bristol. Although Bristol was the realm’s third largest city, its charters were recent (1542) and its city corporation had endured repeated challenges to its authority; the bishops of Bristol, the surrounding landed gentry, the Council of the Marches, and the Court of Admirality, had all impinged on the corporation’s jurisdiction—usually under the pretense of stabilizing this potentially volatile region. These recent challenges helped determine the form and content of Bristol’s 1574 pageants. Though ostensibly to entertain the queen, the city officials created distinctively martial pageants in order to highlight the military prowess of Bristol’s citizen militia and to underscore the city’s ability to prevent rebellion in the west.
