Excerpt from North Carolina University Magazine, Vol. 28: Published by the Dialectic and Philanthropic Literary Societies of the University of North Carolina; December, 1897
We can account for the great interest taken in the presentation of the play of the Crucifixion in the fact that the Catholic Church, at that time dominant, laid special emphasis on the controverted doctrine of Tran substantiation, the conversion of the bread and water into the body and blood or real presence of Christ in the Eucharist; it had become firmly grounded in the faith of the clergy, and prompted by the motion to make this as real to the people as to themselves, toim press them with the great importance of this crowning event in the life of Christ, they spared no pains to make this scene the most important, the most vivid in the whole Drama. On account of this rapid growth in popular favor the church yards soon became too small the stages were removed to large meadows and later to market towns, but by this time the Passion Play had passed into the Miracle Play.
