We give elementary proofs of the univariate elliptic beta integral with bases |q|,|p| < 1 and its multiparameter generalizations to integrals on the A n and C n root systems. We prove also some new unit circle multiple elliptic beta integrals, which are well defined for |q| = 1, and their p → 0 degenerations.

Dedicated to Richard Askey on the occasion of his seventieth birthday.
