VPT 324 - Medieval Theatre: Staging the Divine

Three Credits
Not Offered 2018-2019

Like ancient Greece, medieval drama originated spontaneously in ceremonial acts of worship. The Catholic Church which had originally declared its hostility to the theatre, eventually became its advocate and sponsor. The study of the plays and their theatrical presentation helps to illuminate medieval life and faith, and how theatre served as rite, education and entertainment.
