Of "Stages" and "Types" in Visitatione Sepulchri (Part II)


In lieu of an abstract, the first paragraph of the essay follows:

The classification for distinguishing variants of the Visitatio Sepulchri proposed by Carl Lange and enhanced by E. K. Chambers was systematized by Karl Young in his 1933 collection, The Drama of the Medieval Church.1 Young's work was an expansion of the third book of Chambers' The Mediaeval Stage. Its subject, as the title makes clear, was the drama of the Church, and its scope encompassed the medieval liturgy, the dramatic manifestations of the liturgy, and the various forms of the liturgical drama.
