Medieval Drama

Prof. Michael Hanly

Internet resources for the study of Medieval and Early Renaissance Drama, for students and scholars.

  • For your reference:

    Alan Baragona (Virginia Military Institute), Medieval Drama Home Page

    A useful and eclectic resource.

    Sidney Higgins (U. of Camerino), Medieval Drama Links Page

    This is a very full collection of sites, deftly categorized (Texts, Articles, Stagecraft, Music, Bibliography, Iconography).
    Apr. 2009: My thanks to Prof. Higgins for setting me straight about a bootleg link I had been providing in this space--this link, at last, is the correct one.

    Perform: The Medieval and Renaissance Performance Discussion Group

    This is the WWW Page for a Medieval Drama discussion group. The monthly logs of previous postings are full of enlightened commentary, but there are no course syllabi and only two papers included on the site. Unfortunately, nothing under the "Other Resources" rubric is still in existence.

    Le jour dou jugement: Images from a 14th-Century French mystery play

    Assembled by Jesse Hurlbut at BYU. Some fascinating images; well presented.

    Adam de la Halle Bibliography

    This is a full bibliography on a major figure in early European drama, also by Prof. Hurlbut.

    Like the Perform archive listed above, this site presents the recorded logs of an Internet discussion group on medieval drama.
