  Excerpts: A Dictionary of Stage Directions
The purpose of this volume is to define and provide examples of terms found in the stage directions of English professional plays that date from the 1580s to the early 1640s.
Some locutions found in the 1580s and early 1590s are superseded or simplified in the playtexts that follow (see proffer, let); the earlier signals are often longer, without the shorthand forms that later become commonplace.
To minimize the importance of chronology is not to argue that staging procedures and the terms used to signal those procedures stayed the same in all theatres between the 1580s and the early 1640s.

 Wakelin, Emma Hilary (1997)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Comparatively little scholarly attention has been paid to madrigal anthologies, despite the fact that they are a valuable source both of new works by familiar composers and of the work of otherwise unknown composers.
Unlike several other madrigal anthologies of the 1580s, the Floridi virtuosi collections seem not to have been compiled in order to celebrate a particular occasion or person, nor in order to reflect the achievements of one particular region or institution.
Instead Vincenti and Amadino, who also published a number of regionally-specific anthologies, seem to have been among the first publishers to label a collection as being by composers "d'Italia", at a time when the concept of "Italy" as a geographic and cultural entity was beginning to emerge.

 Literary Encyclopedia: Lyly, John
The phenomenal success of the two works, which ran through circa thirty editions in the course of the next fifty years, gained him the aristocratic patronage he hoped for, and on which during this period writers relied for their support.
His patron, Oxford, had fallen from power at the end of the 1580s, while the boys of St Paul's were suppressed circa 1590, possibly as a result of satirical material supplied or endorsed by Lyly himself, leaving him with no natural outlet for his talents.
Though Lyly's success as a writer was relatively short-lived, it is impossible to over-estimate his impact upon literary tastes of the 1580s and the influence exerted by his work.

In the 1580s, the clash between Spanish and English seapower, culminating in the defeat of the Spanish Armada, might be imagined as a replay of the wars between Rome and Carthage for control of the sea.

 Constructing Elizabethan Ruffs   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
In the 1580s, a new method of ruff construction became fashionable; the fabric of the ruff was cartridge-pleated and sewn to a neck band.
The width of the ruff at the inner neck edge was the width of the collar band.
Beginning in the 1580s and continuing on to the end of the century, women's ruffs began to be worn differently; rather than encircling the neck as they had in previous years, the front edges of the ruff were pinned to the outer edges of a low, square neckline.

The earliest sources of its characteristic alfabeto notation date from the 1580s and were produced in southern Italy or by musicians from that region who traveled to the north.
The notation was known as alfabeto, because its originators employed the letters of the alphabet (and a few other signs) to represent specific finger patterns on the guitar’s fingerboard—that is, specific block harmonies (see example 1).
The first two texts are found in poetry manuscripts from the 1580s; the third is a lauda to the Virgin Mary that appears in a different setting, for solo voice and viola da mano, in Cosimo Bottegari’s manuscript, begun in 1574.

When English warships did first pass through the Straits of Gibraltar, in 1620, it was part of a campaign to release English slaves, to which the Levant Company contributed £1,800.
But it was Jewish brokers who took the lead in founding fraternities for 'Redemption of Captives,' and it was under the auspices of these that a few Jews were allowed into Malta in the 1580s, as middlemen charged with negotiating freedom for captives on commission, 'normally 15 per cent of the ransom.'
But when Wilson suggests that Barabas frequents the slave market solely as angel of redemption, he again snubs the text itself.
