Log-in for full text

Paul Whitfield White challenges the accepted scholarship concerning the decline of biblical drama in early modern England. He argues that during the latter half of Elizabeth’s reign, and continuing into the seventeenth century, all of the major patronised companies operating both within London and beyond, including those travelling to the continent, staged biblical plays. White proposes that these plays were characterised by diversity in dramaturgy, ideological purpose and reception.
