Theatrum triumphans or A discourse of plays. Shewing the lawfulness and excellent use of drammatique poesy, and vindicateing the stage from all those groundless calumnies and misrepresentations, wherewith it is aspersed. Wherein all scruples are removed, and the vain objections of Histro-matrix [sic] and others fully answered and confuted, their mistaken allegations of Scripture and fathers discovered, and their pretended reasons manifested to be nothing but their passions. Written by the learned Sir Richard Baker, Kt.
