‘That all the world may wonder!’: The Palatine Wedding of 1613, its Celebration and Significance

The wedding of Elizabeth Stuart, the only daughter of James I, and Friedrich V, Elector of the Palatinate, was a moment of religious, political and cultural significance. At a time of mounting confessional tension in the Empire, the union was understood as a signal of James’s readiness to support the Protestants in their struggle with Catholic imperialists. While this hope may in the end have proved illusory, the marriage had substantial consequences, not least in its cultural impact on the Heidelberg court and beyond.

This multi-disciplinary international conference aims to explore the marriage of the royal princess to the prince of the Empire from a variety of angles. Its scope includes the confessional and political circumstances of the match, the wedding festivities in London and Heidelberg, the influence of English cultural traditions on the Empire, the character of the Heidelberg court before the ill-fated coronation in Bohemia, and the depiction of the newly married couple in the visual arts and contemporary reports.

The conference is to be held from 7 to 11 September 2008 at the University of Exeter, England. One-page abstracts by 1 July 2007.
