"Cockes face" and the Problem of poydrace in the Chester Passion
In lieu of an abstract, the first paragraph of the essay follows:
After scatological insults the four Jews, the torturers of the Chester Passion, strip Christ of his garments, which they then proceed to divide up, casting dice for the seamless robe; where-upon, Caiphas exclaims:
Men, for Cockes face! how long shall poydrace stand naked in this place? goe, nayles him to the Tree! (533-36)1
