ABSTRACT
The article presents an analysis on the relationship between the York Plays and the feast of the Corpus Christi in terms of performances. It states that two types of evidence are considered to analyze the relationship between the two, namely the connection between the plays, late-formed religious confraternity of Corpus Christi, and contemporary lay devotional tastes and the paraliturgical resonances within the text of the cycle. It says that the two types of evidence help to articulate a reading of the Cycle as a celebration to the feast of Corpus Christi. It mentions that the popularity of devotion to Corpus Christi cuts throughout social divisions in the city.
