The Creation and the Fall of Lucifer

Thank goodness for Dr. Jerz's notes for this play. I probably could have fought my way through the language, but having the extra information available was a HUGE help.

My favorite part of the play was the representation of the hierarchy of life. "The multi-level platform would have communicated this relationship – although, in this play, nothing actually happens on Earth. All the action is on God’s throne, which is at the top; in heaven, at the next level lower, and in hell, which is lower still – possibly at ground level." To me, it makes sense to visually show the ladder of power, along with describing it.

You are so right about the graphic representation and the hell mouth. It would be frightening to see these plays performed; one would want to run to church upon the threat of being sent to hell.

Dr. Jerz's descriptions were crucial to visualizing this play.

Although I'm not Catholic, I really enjoyed Dr. Jerz's description about the art and crucifix of the Catholic faith. He was so knowledgable and it was a huge help in my understanding and visualization of the Corpus Christi plays.
