Summary: The motivations for the staging of festivals in early modern Europe were often complex and multi-faceted. In addition to their role as entertainment spectacles, they were important vehicles for the display of political and military superiority. 'Entries' in to cities were particularly strong symbols of power and influence, and these types of festival, amongst others, form the preoccupation of this collection. Contributors examine a wide variety of festivals and locations used to celebrate victory, peace and pageantry to provide a picture of festivals as occasions of state.
