Seizing the occasion of the appearance of Everyman (for the second time) on the programme of the French Agrégation programme in English, members of the Centre d’Études Supérieures de la Renaissance (Université de Tours/CNRS) invited an international panel of specialists to offer new perspectives on the most widely known, edited and discussed specimen of medieval English drama. The result is eight innovative essays, which build on existing scholarship in a wide variety of categories ranging from cultural and religious contexts to theatrical effects, with particular attention to the play’s provocatively anomalous relation to contemporary productions of the Scène Européenne.
