    Read this book on Questia. In offering this study of the final days of the medieval religious stage, I find that conditions in the world cast an aura of regret around the pleasant years that were spent in . One of the four great collections of medieval miracle plays is here made available for scholars, drama, history and religion students, in an acting edition. Middle English and Latin (the stage directions) are translated; two of the plays have been completed; omissions noted; each of the four sections have notes for the producer. There is an introduction which gives the history of the Wakefield. Not everyone who knows of the Second Shepherds', however, will automatically connect it with the thirty-two short plays (better called 'pageants') that together make up the Towneley cycle, or realise that it is not so much the 'second' as an alternative Shepherds' pageant: Alia eorundem (another of the same).Cited by: 3.
