Beschreibung

Informationen zum Autor Jessica Dell is a doctoral student at McMaster University, Canada. David Klausner is professor of English and Medieval Studies at the University of Toronto, Canada. Helen Ostovich is emeritus professor of English at McMaster University, Canada. Zusammenfassung The Chester Cycle in Context, 1555-1575 considers the implications of recent archival research which has profoundly changed our view of the continuation of performances of Chester's civic biblical play cycle into the reign of Elizabeth I. Scholars now view the decline and ultimate abandonment of civic religious drama as the result of a complex network of local pressures, heavily dependent upon individual civic and ecclesiastical authorities, rather than a result of a nation-wide policy of suppression, as had previously been assumed.
