Abstract

The book will transform and expand my doctoral dissertation on the ‘Strand palaces of the early seventeenth century: Salisbury House and Northumberland House’ (University of Cambridge 2007), and the post-doctoral research which followed at Cambridge (2006-09) and the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art (2009-10), into a study on the whole of the great houses of the Strand, London. That is, extending the analysis to a further nine case studies: Essex, Arundel, Somerset, The Savoy, Burghley, Bedford, Worcester, Durham and York Houses, all of which were built or remodelled between 1550 and 1650, largely arising from the old ‘Bishops’ Inns’, the metaphorical ‘power houses’ of the high clergy built on the Thames side since the thirteenth century.
