Everyman and Medieval Miracle Plays

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Apart from the morality play Everyman, this volume contains a completely new selection of biblical pageants, some of which ultimately go back to the Latin liturgical drama of the medieval Church. They are no less religious in origin and inspiration than the church architecture, painting and sculpture of the Middle Ages. Most of them are Corpus Christi pageants or guild pageants, i.e short plays acted by the trade guilds as episodes of the whole Corpus Christi cycle. They have been chosen for their intrinsic merit from the cycles of York, Chester, Wakefield, Coventry and' Ntown', with the addition of a newly revised translation of the Cornish Death of Pilate to represent this unique branch of Celtic literature.
Book in good condition with dust jacket also in good condition. Navy blue cloth boards with gold glit lettering on the spine of the book. Signs of shelfwear and rubbing on the dust jacket and book. Slight tanning due to age. Pages are intact with no markings to the text.
