Facts about medieval theatre?

A trope was a verbal embellishment, a decoration which was sung during a mass, beginning with Easter Mass but soon stretched out to other church celebrations

Medieval theatre was first performed in churches, then it moved to outside when there wasn't enough space for people to come, and the plays people wanted performed weren't quite moral enough for the church.

They were first performed by churches, priests and clergymen taking centre stage, in Latin.

They were performed as an easy, entertaining way to inform people about Biblical stories, including the first plays, Mystery, being about the Mystery of Christ, telling stories like Adam and Eve, or Abraham and Isaac. Next came Miracle plays, centring on the work of Saints, and the moral temptations which beset every man. The next to appear was Morality genre, the personification of allegorical characters, this is where Everyman comes in.
