  Crummey. Ivan IV. Reformer or Tyrant?
First, in the early 1550s, Ivan's government made a number of detailed technical reforms that might be characterized as "housekeeping" in state and church.
The institutional scope, legal implications, and social impact of the reforms of the 1540s and 1550s were quite limited.
The differences lie, however, not so much in the objectives of royal policy or their social implications as in the impatience and brutality with which the oprichnina regime pursued them and in the devastating consequences of its actions.

 Andrea Palladio's Villa Cornaro in Piombino Dese by Branko Mitrovic in the Nexus Network Journal vol. 6 no. 2 (Autumn ...   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The early 1550s, when the villa was designed and built, were a turning point in Palladio's approach to design.
But from the late 1540s and early 1550s Palladio started systematically using the orders in his designs and -- together with Palazzo Chiericati, Villa Pisani in Montagnana and the Basilica -- Villa Cornaro was one of first major works in which this new approach was manifested.
It was in the decades of the 1550s and 1560s that Palladio and Vignola introduced a revolution in the Renaissance use of the classical orders.

 Historical Text Archive: Articles: Overpopulaton and Aging in 17th England
Although deaths appear to be running at a relatively low and fairly constant level fom 1550 to the mid 1580s, the series is disturbed by a catastrophic surge of mortality in the late 1550s and a plague outbreak of 1563.
In the 'disturbed' quinquennia of the 1540s and early 1560s the birth/death ration is just under 1.3; in the late 1550s 0.813; in 1550-4 and 1565-84 the ratio was between 1.449 and 1.578.
Between 1585 and 1640 (though it seems that big epidemics were less serious than in mid-century) the underlying trend in deaths began to rise more swiftly than that of births.

 Seven-Year War - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The expeditionary army had a prescribed strength of 100,000, made up of 42,000 from five northern military districts, a contingent of 3000 soldiers proficient in the use of firearms from South China, and far more from Siam and the Ryukyus.
Seaports in China were closed for fear that the Wokou invasions of the 1550s would be repreated.
In February 1593 a large combined force of Chinese and Korean soldiers attacked Pyongyang and drove the Japanese into southward retreat.

 John Dee and Thomas Digges: like father, like son?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Moreover, Dee’s early career in the 1550s as a mathematical client in noble households provided an exemplar for emulation as Digges first fashioned his own role in the early 1570s.
Given this probability that Thomas had first studied with Dee at the end of the 1550s, we therefore cannot be sure that Dee’s Praeface to the 1570 Euclid is the most appropriate or relevant text for understanding Digges’s early work.
Digges differed from Dee in both birth and upbringing: he appears not to have attended university and, rather than a scholar, was a gentleman who inherited substantial holdings of land and property.

With the spread of the gospel such churches existed in number by the 1550s and in the year 1549 Bishop Burnet says
With the spread of the gospel such churches existed in number by the 1550s and in the year 1549 Bishop Burnet says “There were many Anabaptists in several parts of England who say that ‘infant baptism is no baptism”.
Primary this was an anti-Catholic law but it did allow significant religious freedom to spread the Gospel, openly Baptise believers, and form independent congregations separate from the state church.

In the 1550s, the ruff began the growth which was to culminate in the gigantic ruffs of the 1590s.
The ruffles were still quite small and box-pleated, but layers of ruffling were stacked on eachother for a thicker, fuller ruff.
Ruffs of the 1550s and 1560s were decorated primarily along the edges, with fl, gold, silver, or other contrasting embroidery.

Russian conquest of the Khanate of Kazan in the 1550s paved the way further east which was now free from Tatar depredations (see Yermak Timofeyevich).
The first surviving Russian settlements in the area date back to the late 16th - early 17th centuries (Verkhoturye, 1598; Turinsk, 1600; Irbit, 1633; Alapayevsk, 1639).

 Ming Empire 1368-1644 by Sanderson Beck
Li Zhi (1527-1602) passed the provincial exams in 1552 but declined to take the metropolitan exam and entered the civil service at a low rank.
All but one of his seven children died young, two of his daughters from malnutrition probably during the rebellions and pirate wars of the 1550s when the price of grain was very high.
When his father died in 1560, he resigned to mourn; he withdrew from the Imperial College in 1564 after his grandfather died.
