Abstract

The first decade of the 17th century saw a new wave of biblical drama in Czech, with the plays of Rúth (1604), Šalamoun (Salomon, 1605), and Samson (1608) most prominent among them. This essay studies the dramaturgical similarities between these Czech plays and the English comedy as performed by travelling English actors.
