The basis for the most common medieval legend of Pope Joan is found in. .
The basis for the most common medieval legend of Pope Joan is found in the Chronicle of Popes and Emperors compiled by Martin of Troppau (d. 1278, also known as Martin of Opava or Martinus Polonus). Joan also became a major figure in literature. Boccaccio included Joan in his Book of Famous Women, holding her up as a negative example of a clever woman who had the audacity to infiltrate male institutions and brought dire consequences in her wake.
Impressively attentive to developments in the field and appreciative of the practical challenges of investigating medieval English drama, this anthology makes a major contribution to the study and teaching of early English drama. The past generation has been an extraordinarily active one in medieval drama scholarship; our appreciation of the range of medieval drama has been significantly broadened, and our understanding of certain medieval genres―most notably, biblical drama―has been fundamentally altered.
Medieval Drama The Role of the Church The medieval period in Europe .
Medieval Drama The Role of the Church The medieval period in Europe (. 476-1500) began with the collapse of Rome, a calamity of such magnitude that the years between then and the beginning of the Crusades in 1095 have been traditionally, if erroneously, called the Dark Ages. Or it is possible that the people may have craved drama, and the Church's response could have been an attempt to answer their needs. In some cases a figure could descend from an upper area as if from the clouds, or actors could descend from the pageants onto the audience's level to enact a descent into an underworld.
