dc.description.abstract For a true understanding of many of the early sixteenth century interludes it is essential to know the religious doctrine that prompted their composition. This doctrine, based on Martin Luther's teachings, the reformers called the "new learning." It was popularized in England by Luther's books and by William Tyndale's translations and treatises. Just as the early morality plays of the fifteenth century show a close connection with the popular moral treatises of the time, so these early sixteenth century religious interludes reflect the teachings of the moral treatises of the "new learning." It will be the object of this dissertation to analyze from the popular treatises the two systems of salvation behind the morality plays of the late fifteenth century and the interludes and dialogues of the early sixteenth and to demonstrate the relationship of play to treatise.
