Description

Originally published in 1872, this work is based on the author's experiences in the town of Oberammergau, Germany, the site of the world famous Passion Play. Greatorex, a famous illustrator of the period, recounts her three-month stay during which time she illustrated twenty of the town's famous homes, which are an essential part of the work. Mork, a distinguished Passion Play scholar, not only places the book into an historical context, but describes the play as it was performed during that time
