Day 1: Theatre is banned.
Objective:

Students will be able to demonstrate their understanding of why the Catholic Church banned theatre through discussion.


Hook:

What do you think of when you hear “Medieval?” (possible answers may include castles, Renaissance Fairs, Medieval Times restaurant, knights, princesses, etc.)



  • What about if I say Medieval theatre? Anything?


Materials Needed:

Two different colored stacks of sticky notes


Lecture:

It isn’t surprising that we don’t think about theatre when we think Medieval. Here’s a little background as to why:



  • Roman empire falls. No longer is the majority of the known world ruled by one emperor. The political structure is gone and the only thing left is the Catholic Church.

  • Theatre is now gone – the Catholic Church says it’s not okay. Even though I don’t agree with that judgment of theatre, I can’t help but understand why they felt this way that that time – remember what Roman theatre was like? (bloody, violent, basically horrifying) and so that’s what the Catholic Church is not okay.
