The York mystery plays, forty-eight pageants covering sacred history from the creation of the world to the last judgment, are known from a single manuscript (dating from around 1463-1477). This book presents a major reconsideration of the York plays, arguing that they show a sophisticated use of Boethius' theories about time. The author argues that the discussion about whether the plays were produced by clerics or truly represent folk literature is irrelevant because both groups shared a common world view.
