Undertakes a task proposed a century ago but never before done, namely systematically comparing three medieval works (in German, French and English) centred on the sacrament of penance. Comparing Heinrich von Burgeis's high-medieval treatise and two very different late-medieval plays reveals much of the works' differing theological and didactic aims, as well as their structure and literary methods. The analysis also facilitates some more general reflections about the tensions and links between the superficially very different genres of the sermon and the theatre play.
