Rosemary, Sage, Parsley And Time

View 253 digitised Renaissance festival books (selected from over 2,000 in the British Library's collection) that describe the magnificent festivals and ceremonies that took place in Europe between 1475 and 1700 - marriages and funerals of royalty and nobility, coronations, stately entries into cities and other grand events. In the Background section you can find out what festival books are, and where and how these events were staged and who took part. Other web resources appear in our Links section and further reading in References. The Texts section allows you to read the digitised books in their original languages, search using a series of indices, and gather information on aspects of festival across a range of books.
