This collection brings to light three accounts on the Holy Roman Empire and Denmark during the second half of the sixteenth century. Written by two Englishmen and one Scot, these works demonstrate the depth of diplomacy as carried out by highly specialized representatives, the complexity of politics in the Empire, and the volatile but crucial role played by religion in international relations during a period of conflict. The first treatise dates from 1569, when Queen Elizabeth and the Protestant Princes of Germany tried to form an alliance against Catholic powers, the second from 1588, when Denmark was adjusting to a regency government, the third from 1590, when King James VI sent his first embassy to Germany and Denmark after his marriage to Anna. This volume will be useful to scholars of Britain, Germany, and Denmark, as well as those interested in more general aspects of early modern diplomacy and religion.
