Resurrection: Representation v. Reality in a Miracle of St John of Beverley

Wilson, Susan E.

Medieval Forum Vol.1 (2002)

Abstract

A thirteenth-century miracle story relates the story of how a small boy is raised from death inside the church of St John at Beverley whilst a mystery play of Christ’s resurrection is being performed in the churchyard outside. The author establishes parallels between the original defining event, its representation in play, and God’s physical re-enactment in order to demonstrate the inadequacy of dramatic performance to transmit truth. At the same time, he interprets the miracle as signifying the whole Christian message from Abraham, to Christ’s incarnation, death and resurrection.
