A Christain Carnivale

Various, York Corpus Christi Background -- Drama as Literature (EL 250)

York Corpus Christi plays reminds me of a carnival. Move to different places to entertain a new set of people every day (In their case every hour or two). But instead of the old tricks and games, they spread the most important stories in the Bible. It is amazing how they had 12 stations and act out 48 plays back to back. Since most people in the Middle Ages can't read, it the only way the can get the lessons. I think these plays abd the way the produced it is extremely clever and unforgettable. Do you think that the way the people of York produce this plays worked or are there other ways that they are learning the Bible?
