Ludus Coventriae

Ludus Coventriae (lōˈdəs kəvĕnˈtrēā) [key], one of four extant cycles of English miracle plays. In the 17th cent. it was mistakenly designated as originating in the town of Coventry. Because of its stylistic distinction from other Coventry plays, the Ludus Coventriae is presently believed to have been produced by a traveling troupe. See also miracle play.
