Geistliche Spiele im schlesischen Literaturraum – Eine Neueinordnung
Devotional theatre of medieval Silesia – A reclassification
Languages of publication
The article focuses on the Breslauer Osterspiel and the so-called Saganer Grablegungspiel, two documents of the devotional theatre of medieval Silesia which have been classified in very different ways because of their fragmentary state of tradition. Based on a palaeographical and codicological analysis of the preserved text previous evaluations are put to the test and if necessary complemented and rectified to achieve a reclassification of the plays. The communicational and functional context of text and manuscript is the most interesting aspect in this case. To clarify this point other dramatic texts and similar manuscripts will be included.
