Elizabethan England, humanism, social conduct
The men and women of Elizabethan England were well aware of their living in an age of transition. The old order was changing and empirical maxims were replacing the ideals of classical humanism. The new courtier and the new man of the middle class searched for pragmatic rules that led to success, recognition, and a more gracious way of life that befitted the new wealth.
