The Patrons and Performances Web Site combines essential biographical data for medieval and Renaissance patrons of performers with key details for the tours of the performers themselves – their troupe names, tour stops, performance venues, rewards and expenses, audience, and the documentary sources for these details as given in the twenty-seven collections published in the REED series. This data is enriched by new architectural, image-rich data on early performance spaces and historical GIS mapping. The database has content hitherto unavailable for teaching and can bring to life the careers of medieval and renaissance acting troupes as one of REED’s primary contributions to the field of early theatre.
