With the Reformation came the final end of the great Religious plays of the medieval period. The episode sumarises the great trends of medieval theatre and charts the final end as Europe descended into religious disagreement.

A reminder of the journey from the religious trope, thorough the folk festivals, the cycle plays, the saints play, the morality play and the interlude.

The end of Medieval Theatre as brought about by the Reformation and political and sociological changes.

Some final thoughts on the legacy of Medieval Theatre.
