Speaker: Dr Cristina Figueredo, Centre for Lifelong Learning
The Mystery Plays have represented both York’s piety and its civic pride. In the Middle Ages, they were performed on pageant wagons wheeled through the city streets. Last year, the Plays were performed at the Minster and, previously, in the Museum Gardens. In 2018, the pageant wagons will return to the streets of York. This lecture will provide an introduction to the history of the York Mystery Plays and hopefully set the mood for the forthcoming event.
