Purimspiel und Fastnachtspiel
Purim Plays and Shrovetide Plays: Interdisciplinary Essays on an Intersection of Genres

Interdisziplinäre Beiträge zur Gattungsinterferenz

Edited by: Klaus Wolf

The volume examines for the first time the intersection of genres between Purim plays and Shrovetide plays. The approximate temporal coincidence of the Jewish Purim festival and Christian Shrovetide in the liturgical calendar as well as the common enactment of a world turned upside-down suggest the possibility of mutual influences. The interdisciplinary essays are intended to stimulate further research.
