About this Event

Taking it to the Street: The Feast of Corpus Christi in Late Medieval York

Dr Elisa Foster, Centre for Lifelong Learning

York is famous for its Mystery Plays, which will be performed again this summer. This talk looks at the origins of the plays and the Feast of Corpus Christi, focusing especially upon the great procession that paraded through the streets of medieval York. It will also discuss the revival of the plays and the ways in which the medieval spirit of these performances is captured.
