A discussion of the role of medieval guilds in the creation of drama.
So, if these plays were put on by guilds, who were the guilds and how did it work? What was a guild and how did they become responsible for the different parts of the performances? Further, why would a guild, which we might think of as an economic organization of labour, even be interested in the presentation of plays? After all, today economics and culture tend to be contrasting rather than complementary discourses… not so back then.
