ABSTRACT
The article discusses the evidence supporting the suspicion by theatre historians that the Benedictine monastery of St. Emmeram in Regensburg, Germany was a site of highly innovative, large-scale plays from the early twelfth century. It states that most assuring proof is found in Regensburg canon Hugo von Lerchenfeld's chronicle of local history. It notes that one must not revert to literary genre's essentialist notions to recognise the significance of the proof from Hugo von Lerchenfeld. It notes that Hugo von Lerchenfeld's dramatis personae shows that the medieval Creed Play demonstrated analogous structural principles in vernacular and Latin forms.
