'Civilization arises and unfolds in and as play' (Johan Huizinga, Homo Ludens). In civic entertainment, 'play' constitutes the primary formative element in human culture that affords and sustains common interest and amusement. Texts produced in the classical, medieval and the Renaissance periods document how the Church, the Court, and the citizens devise their 'play' in triumphal entries, court entertainment, civic festivals, religious rituals, processions, drama, m

usic and dance.
