Terence Staged in the Sixteenth Century


Opening scene of an indoor Renaissance performance, from an edition of 1580. This is the Prologue of the comedy "Heauton Timorumenos" ("The Self-Tormentor") by Terence (195-159 B.C.) with an actor as the Prologue in a day-lit theatre. This setting marks the beginning of a shift away from outdoor theatres to the modern indoor stage. To see the title page of the edition go to the Terence entry in Primary Renaissance Texts in this site's Performance Bibliography
