Abstract

About the book: The religious plays found in many European cultures from the Middle Ages up until the modern age are closely related to devout practices and draw their subjects from worship, the bible and legends. The contributions to this interdisciplinary anthology take a look at religious plays as cultural performances and as part of a multimedia devout practice. The articles investigate the position of these plays within the culture of medieval daily life and festivity, the relationship between the spiritual and the secular, and the staging of cultural structural models in the plays.
