The handout contains modernized versions of two of the plays, "Creation and the Fall of Lucifer" and "The Crucifixion."
(You may post one agenda item to count for both of these plays, but I would also like you to post an agenda item regarding the background material I have posted on the York Corpus Christi Cycle.)

Several short readings designed to illustrate the social and religious context in which the York Corpus Christi plays were produced.
A Christ Taken Prisoner
An amusing historical anecdote that illustrates how the religious, economic, and civic lives of the people were closely intertwined. The example is not from the medieval English town of York, but rather describes a different occasion in a different country.
Video captures and video clips from a 1977 production of the full cycle (including the two plays you are asked to read).
