Within Westminster Abbey a large Theatre was erected, which extended to the 4. Pillars betwene the Quier and the Altar, the ascent to the said Theatre was by severall steps, and the descent from thence to the Altar two steps.

In the middle of the said Theatre was erected a Throne raysed upon 5 degrees, or steps, where was placed two Chaires of State of Cloth of gold with footstools and Cushions respecting the Altar.

The Theatre was floored with red say, and the Throne, and the steps going up to it was covered with cloth of Gold.

The Area or Sacrarium betwene the Altar and the Theatre was covered with red Say.

At the Foot of the Throne upon the Theatre facing the Altar, two rich Chaires were placed with a Faldstoole and cushions before them, for the King and Queene.

Upon the South syde of the said Area betwene the Theatre and the Altar was a Traverse of Crimson Taffeta and two Chaires with Footstooles and Cushions and Faldstooles before the Chayres.

Opposite thereunto on the North syde was a Chayre of Purple Velvet for the Lord Bishop of London, who at this Solemnity officiated instead of the Archbishop of Canterbury.

About the middle of the Area, some what neerer the Theatre then the Altar was placed St. Edwards Chayre, and another by it for the Queene.
