Extractions: Racial attitudes in America have their origins in the culture of Eliza-bethan England, for it was in the closing decades of the sixteenth century that the English people, who were on the verge of creating an overseas em-pire in North America and the Caribbean, began to come into frequent contact with peoples whose culture, religion, and color was markedly dif-ferent from their own. In the early responses of Englishmen to Indians and Africans lay the seeds of what would become, four centuries later, one of the most agonizing social problems in American historythe problem of racial prejudice. Englishmen did not arrive at Jamestown, Virginia, in 1607, or at Ply-mouth, Massachusetts, in 1620, with minds barren of images and precon-ceptions of the native occupiers of the land. A mass of reports and stories concerning the Indians of the New World, many of them based upon the Spanish and Portuguese experience in Mexico, Peru, and Brazil, were avail-able in printed form or by word of mouth for curious Englishmen crossing the Atlantic. From this literature ideas and fantasies concerning the Indians gradually entered the English consciousness. These early accounts seem to have created a split image of the Indian in the English mind. On the one hand, the native was imagined to be a savage, hostile, beast-like creature who inhabited the animal kingdom rather than the kingdom of men. In 1585, prospective adventurers to the New World could read one description of the natives of North America which depicted them as naked, lascivious individuals who cohabited "like beasts without any reasonableness." Another account described them as men who "spake such speech that no men could understand them, and in their demeanor like to brute beastes."

Garraty and Peter Gay, which I started in late 1989. Book has about 1166 pages of text, including 91 maps, and another 100 pages of supporting material. Estimate about 470,000 words! My original plan was to read 3 pages per day and finish it in a year. I started out well, and was on schedule for a few months, but then other matters intervened. I pick it up for a few months every year. A major stumbling block was the middle ages, which were awfully slow. As I've often said, a "History of the Universe" would be an astronomy book. A "History of the Galaxy" would be an astronomy book. A "History of the Solar System" would be an astronomy book. A "History of the Earth" would be a geology book. A "History of Life" would be a biology book, a "History of Human Life" would be a paleontology book, etc. You have to get down to 10 to the negative 29th power before you reach a subset so specific we would recognize it as human history. [If you'd like to see my derivation of this, ask and I will send.] Here is the Table of Contents. Note the reverse logarithmic scale in terms of time. I'll add that chapter 1 is astronomy, chapter 2 is geology, chapter 3 is biology, chapter 4 is paleontology...

Extractions: Article originally published in The Hermetic Journal Man of science and magus extraordinary, and for two decades England's leading mathematician, it is only in recent years that John Dee's reputation has begun to properly recover from the obloquy attached by an age of militant rationalism to those notorious angel raising episodes in which he engaged in the 1580s. Meric Casaubon's poisonous 1659 edition of Dee's angelic diaries, which did not include all extant volumes, leaves us with little more than an impression of a rather pathetic Dee seeking to communicate with angelic spirits with frustratingly meagre results. What I am seeking to identify is the political and religious significance of these episodes and the clues they give to the secret society culture of the late Elizabethans. Dee's religious views have always been irritatingly opaque. That he was a Protestant of some sort is beyond dispute. In the time of Edward VI he associated with reformers. The curious affair in the reign of Catholic Queen Mary, when, during investigation by the Court of Requests (a committee of the Star Chamber) in 1555, he was accused of casting horoscopes of the Queen and her Spanish husband with evil intent, is ambiguous, for some of his companions in this possibly criminal venture subsequently proved lackeys of the Catholic monarchy of the most loyal kind. In any case, Dee was released, the official suspicions presumably dispelled. 1
Extractions: Elizabeth , directed by Shekhar Kapur, written by Michael Hirst 3 December 1998 The story of Elizabeth I of England (1533-1603) is a remarkable one. Here is a woman not merely surviving in a cruel and treacherous age, but leaving her mark on one of the most extraordinary periods in English and modern world history. While the social struggle is the driving force of historical development, human beings are not thereby turned into ciphers, passive and anonymous "expressions" of class interests. What individuals do at critical moments has consequences. So Elizabeth intrigues us. It is natural that artists, as well as historians, should desire to explore her motives, her interests, her feelings. And there is the more general fascination with the English Renaissance and its exceptional array of personalities: Elizabeth's longtime adviser William Cecil (later Lord Burghley), the philosopher and statesman Francis Bacon, the adventurer and poet Walter Raleigh, the admiral and explorer Francis Drake, the poet, courtier, soldier and statesman Philip Sidney, the dramatist and poet Ben Jonson, the dramatist and poet Christopher Marlowe, and countless othersscientists, mathematicians, composers. And, above all, in the latter part of Elizabeth's reign, William Shakespeare. Each exploration of this age is at least in part an attempt to come to terms with, if not offer an explanation for, Shakespeare's personality and genius.

We too will be following our own particular road to Morocco, as well as to the neighbouring countries of Tunisia, Libya and Egypt in this course. Our journey, illustrated by slides and video, takes us along the sun-drenched coast of North Africa, to visit some of the most spectacular cities of the ancient world. Morocco - the location of numerous film and TV Biblical and other epics. Tunisia - an increasingly popular holiday resort but with a rich and colourful history. Libya - not so well known as yet but with perhaps the most spectacular Roman remains in antiquity at Leptis Magna, Sabratha and Cyrenaica. Egypt, with Alexandria being one of the four greatest cities in the world in Roman times. Escape the Winter gloom with a day of sunshine and superb scenery as we revisit places which helped to form our civilisation. The Ancient Egyptians developed a highly distinctive artistic style, which is instantly recognisable to us today. This course concentrates on Egyptian art to show how it developed and changed over some 3000 years. We will look at the subject thematically, considering the way in which the Egyptians depicted things, not as the eye sees them, but rather as a blueprint of reality, showing what the Egyptians knew to be there, rather than what they could actually see. We will examine the pigments, materials and techniques the artists used before the course continues, in a chronological framework, to look more closely at the artwork of the different periods of Egyptian civilization.

Extractions: At first glance, Shakespeare's history play, Henry V, may seem a strange subject for any exploration of spiritual themes and values, a play which unabashedly celebrates patriotic fervor, martial heroism, and military might.The career of Henry Monmouth, affectionately known as Prince Hal or Harry the Fifth, ignited Shakespeare's imagination in his Lancastrian tetralogy, a series of plays outlining the maturation of England's mythic king from prodigal prince to ideal ruler. Of all of Shakespeare's plays, Henry V is undoubtedly the only one which approaches epic proportions; yet, Henry's humanity is never compromised nor his victories easily won. In his youth as prince Hal, he is "'a truant... to chivalry'" (I Henry IV, V.i.194) until he recognizes the "'majesty and power of law and justice' (2 Henry IV, V. ii. 77) on his accession to the throne as Henry V"(Meron, 117). Upon the death of his father, Henry IV, he finally feels the burden of majesty and is "ready to submit 'his greatness... into the hands of justice'" (2 Henry IV, V.ii.110-11); however, "Shakespeare reserves the most flattering picture of the perfect knight for Henry V at Agincourt, one that emphasizes honour, courage, lack of material pursuits and generosity, which includes allowing those that fear the fighting to depart" (Meron, 117). Shakespeare's portrait, however, is not without historical precedent. The legend of Henry's "conversion was powerful and of long standing. It began with the chronicler Walsingham, who said that Henry on coming to the throne was turned suddenly into another man, and persisted in the Famous Victories of Henry V, where only a miracle can account for the abrupt transition from waster to serious monarch" (Tillyard, 305). Shakespeare echoes that tradition at the opening of Henry V when he has the Archbishop of Canterbury remind the Bishop of Ely that:

Extractions: England-born Tina Packer (who trained at RADA and acted with the RSC and Royal Court Theatre) journeyed to the U.S. in the early 1970's with the idea of creating and running a theatre company that merged the power suits of British actors and American actors: the spoken word and the physical body. It was an attempt to reinvigorate her sense of what Elizabethan theatre and acting constituted. For this she desired a beautiful, non-commercial setting and a reasonable proximity to an audience. By 1978 Tina and fellow director Kristin Linklater had secured residency at novelist Edith Wharton's summer mansion and grounds The Mount; finding its natural beauty, many playing spaces, cultural summer audience, and Stratford-like locale to be in agreement with her mission. The 466-seat Founders' Theatre, with the ability to transform into five seating configurations, opened in June 2001 to record audience numbers. It has since hosted the Fall Festival of Shakespeare (500 students from 10 schools performing a marathon of Shakespeare) and numerous community performances, concerts, and symposiums. The 99-seat Spring Lawn Theatre, located in an historic Berkshire mansion, opened in July 2001 and has staged works by and about Edith Wharton, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Herman Melville. New for 2002, the Rose Footprint stage will be built on the site of the future Rose Playhouse in the Company's Rose Village.
