The article discusses the religious plays developed in medieval York in England which has a huge proportion of population. The city's production of the plays in question was said to be indisputably in the control and ownership of the craft and trade population of the owning city. It discusses how the regular and secular clergy interacted with the lay population, and how or whether that relationship is encoded in the performance of the cycle itself. It illustrates the "Register," which provides the fullest and easiest access to the nature of the cycle, that was written when the plays had settled into the form in which they are familiar to people.
