On dark night in medieval Europe three travelling priests disappear under suspicious circumstances after staying at a roadside inn, and mysterious stranger may be the only one who can uncover the truth. This “tiered” version of the anonymous medieval play Miraculum Sancti Nicholai presents the original Latin text along with two other version in simpler Latin. Intermediate Latin readers can progress quickly through the tiers until they can easily read the original text without the need for vocabulary or grammatical notes. Also included are a full glossary and full performance scripts of all three versions of the play.
