Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Derek John Patrick - Speaker

Parliaments and Representation. Prelates, Nobles and Patricians: the composition of representative assemblies. Second workshop of the project entitled Political Representation: communities, ideas and institutions in Europe (c.1200-c.1700), funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research. This was the second workshop conference of the European network‘Political representation: communities, ideas and institutions in Europe (c.1200-c.1700)’.

The first, foundational workshop, held at The Hague, considered the origins of representation and the divergent institutional developments of representative institutions, and placed these in comparative view in a range of European settings. At Stirling attention turned to the members themselves – the deputies, commissioners, senators and lords of parliament who gathered by right, by selection or election. Individually and severally, these figures are the focus of a group of parliamentary experts from Scotland, England, Ireland, Holland, Belgium and Germany covering a lengthy historical timeline from c.1300 to c.1700.
