Welcome to the WWW pages of the York Doomsday Project.

This has grown from a multimedia computer project on the fifteenth-century York Mystery Plays, arguably the most famous of the cycles, into a research project exploring all aspects of the plays and their various social, intellectual, religious, and theatrical contexts. It also aims to present the surviving evidence around the original performance in a completely new way, using both traditional and innovative techniques.

In the following pages you can see examples of the Project's work, from techniques of presenting manuscript and image electronically to reports on its activities so far.
