The York Corpus Christi cycle is the oldest and best-known of the English mystery cycles, and its depth and scope are reflected in the selection of twenty-two pageants offered in this volume. Included are plays on the Creation, the Fall of Man, the Incarnation, Passion, and Resurrection of Christ, and the Last Judgement. The Passion sequence has been expanded by six of the eight plays generally attributed to the great poetic dramatist known as the York realist; this is the only edition of these works available in paperback, and the only volume to offer modern spelling throughout. Including detailed notes and a general introduction, this is the perfect source for students of medieval music, drama, and literature as well as actors participating in revivals of these famous plays.

Review:

`This edition benefits from detailed notes and an introduction which examines the history of the mystery plays and discusses the immensely popular modern productions in York and elsewhere.' Richard Foster, Yorkshire Evening Press

`Here in OUP's World Classic series we are presented with 22 of them written in modern style, making them more readable. The selection gives a good idea of what these plays were all about.' Bill Spence, Yorkshire Gazette and Herald
