The liturgical drama arose in a period of rapidly integrating feudalism. Christians experienced contradiction between a Church that offered salvation and a Church that, through its large landholdings, exploited a large number of peasants. This study examines the attempts made by clergy to revitalize faith by creating new theology, new music, new prayers, tropes, new rituals, and the drama.
