Lynette Muir's study presents a detailed survey and analysis of the surviving corpus of Biblical drama from all parts of medieval Christian Europe. It examines over five hundred plays from the tenth to the sixteenth centuries, in a wide-ranging discussion that makes available the full scope of this important part of theater history. Organized to provide a complete overview of major aspects of medieval Biblical theater, it includes valuable appendices that give information on the liturgical calendar, processions, the Mass and the Bible.
