As every student of the modern drama has learned from the careful research work of Chambers, Creizenach, and particularly of Prof. Karl Young, this form of art had its origin in the liturgy of the medieval Church. During the period from the tenth to the fourteenth century, when many of the gorgeous cathedrals of France, Germany, and England-Notre Dame, and Amiens, and Reims, and Strassburg, and Cologne, and Lincoln, and York, and Westminster were erected, the minds of the people of these and other countries were intensely religious.
