Dramatis Personae Archive
"During spring semester 2006, the graduate and undergraduate students of French 4900/7900: Dramatis Personae, a seminar on early modern performance under the direction of Dr. Christine Jones, created this site.

It is an intellectual exploration of early modern performance and a unique archive of web-based resources that showcases rare books in their historical context.
