Relationship Between Rennaisance and Medieval Drama.
The term “medieval” come from the Latin meaning “middle age”. The term medieval (originally spelt mediaeval) was not introduced into English until the 19th century, a time when there was heightened interest in the art, history and thought of the Middle Ages. Most of the early literature of this period consists of sermons, prayers, lives of saints, and homilies. Somewhat later than the religious writers, the English secular poets appear. The figure of the King Arthur, an ancient British hero, attracted the attention of (and imagination) of thee early writers. Arthur first appeared in literature in the Latin “History of the British King” (around 1147).
