Elizabethan Style[edit]

Surely it is wrong for there to be a redirect from Elizabethan style architecture to this page? Later architects, particularly Victorian produced many buildings in Elizabethan style which were not Elizabethan.Chemical Engineer (talk) 16:50, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

It is my understanding that in architectural history parliance, those would not be Elizabethan, however, rather revivals. Those are usually classified as Tudor Revival or Jacobethan. Morgan Riley (talk) 23:08, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

Change[edit]

The end of XVI century are the date of Manierism and Herrerian, not Early Renaissance in France, and the Plateresque style in Spain. It must be changed.--Ángel Luis Alfaro (talk) 17:46, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Reception Room[edit]

Not entirely sure this sentence is a correct assessment:

It was also at this time that English houses adopted the concept of a long gallery as the chief reception room.

because by the reign of Henry VIII, the concept of the great hall was already dead. New builds took that space into a formal dining room & a reception room, which were divided by a gallery that either led to or contained the main staircase, or were off the gallery. This was already being done in the 1st decade of Henry VIIIs reign. Remodelling of existing homes also divvied up the great hall space.

Or this bit:

Renaissance architecture arrived in England during the reign of Elizabeth I.

because it actually arrived in her grandfather's reign, when Henry VII adopted the Burgundian style for building Richmond Palace & later rebuilding Greenwich after its fire. ScarletRibbons (talk) 06:13, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

Yes, like the rest of the article they are nonsense. Johnbod (talk) 22:16, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
