About this product
- DescriptionIntroducing a radical new understanding of these plays as sacramental theater, Beckwith shows how organizing the plays served as a political mechanism for regulating labor, and how theater and sacrament combined in them to do important theological work. She argues, for instance, that the theology of Corpus Christi in the resurrection plays can only be understood as a theatrical exploration of eucharistic absence and presence. Beckwith frames her study with discussions of twentieth-century manifestations of sacramental theater in Barry Unsworth's vel Morality Play and Denys Arcand's film Jesus of Montreal , and the connections between contemporary revivals of the York Corpus Christi plays and England's heritage culture.
