I agree with Lara that Elizabeth herself symbolized nationalism not only in her dress, but in the way her court was conducted and in all of her retoric of the time. She wanted foreigners to see that there was no place better than England and no one better than an Englishman. Also she created natiionalism in the church. The high point was probably the victory over the Spanish Armada.
Lara,I meant that I agreed with "British nut," I noticed that you hadn't responded....sorry. Nancy
