Excerpt from Early Mysteries, And Other Latin Poems Of The Twelfth And Thirteenth Centuries: Edited From The Original Manuscripts in The British Museum, And The Libraries Of Oxford, Cambridge, Paris, And Vienna In a little volume recently published at Paris by M. Champollion-figeac, * we have three Latin Plays, very similar in style to those of the Orleans ms., which are attributed to the pen of Hilarius, a disciple of the famous Abelard, and which must in that case have been written in the first half of the twelfth century. Two of them, the Resurrection of Lazarus, and the Ludus super iconia Sancti Nicolai, have their representatives in the present volume, although in the two instances the subject is very differently treated. The subject of the other drama of Hilarius is taken from the history of Daniel.
