I would be curious to know what "essentially a Protestant art-form" means.

 

It means that it was subversive of (previously) established religious authority: I would instance John Bale's "Kynge Johan" and David Lyndsay's "Ane Pleasant Satyre of the Thrie Estaitis".

 

Does Briggs give dates for "at this time."

 

I was thinking of the Reformation period and afterwards in Britain.

Hi Everyone,

 

Seeing as this is a continuation of my original question, begged or not, I would also like to add that European Public Theatre was essentially a Catholic affair. 

 

So how about the guilds and professional actors there? Spanish theatre began from the same Mystery and Morality roots. Also while we're at it. What was the status of actresses on the European stage? 

 

Yours,

Will
