Jack Campin Origins: Dives and Lazarus (20) RE: Origins: Dives and Lazarus 14 Nov 20


It's sad that so few religious folksongs survived the Reformation. Southern European folk music is full of them, and Biblical folktales are common in mediaeval English poetry. Rather than a product of Victorian censoriousness, Dives and Lazarus is a rare survival of Elizabethan repression.
