dc.description Citation: Kennett, Maud Estella. The history of the english drama. Senior thesis, Kansas State Agricultural College, 1895.
dc.description.abstract Intoduction: The drama began in England, as it did in the Greece, in religion. In early times none but the clergy could read the story of religion; no sermons were preached, so in order to teach the uneducated of the Bible, as most people were unable to read and had imperfect ideas in regard to scriptural history, the Church encouraged the religions drama, believing it a powerful medium in religious instruction. The first plays were under the directions of the laity for a time but were soon taken out of their hands and acted by the Priests.
