Mystery Plays in York

The plays are based on the Bible, retelling stories from creation to the last judgement including the death and resurrection of Jesus. Back in the 14th century, when church services and the Bible were both in Latin, these plays allowed the people of York to learn what each story was all about. Trade Guilds acted out the Bible narratives on wagons which toured the streets.

The story moves on to the time of Jesus
