About the Authors
  • Originally published in 1963, this book sets out to show that dramatic elements in the imagery of medieval churches, whether stained glass, wall paintings or sculpture, were intended to convey the same traditional themes of religious thinking as plays of the same period. The text shows how these two forms of popular instruction developed side by side and how a study of church imagery can close gaps in our knowledge of ways in which plays were composed, staged and dressed. Conversely, observations are also made regarding the ways in which stage directions in play texts can be used to explain curious features in the decoration of churches. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in medieval drama and religious iconography.
