Drama, Play, and Game: English Festive Culture in the Medieval and Early Modern Period

This webpage shows different styles of masks, and demonstrates the purposes for which masks were worn in the late Middle Ages, as well as a few metaphorical depictions of masks. Examples below include mummers’ masks, Carnival masks, and other disguises.

Masks for commedia dell'arte and 16th & 17th century women's masks (“vizards” and “invisories”) have moved to their own linkspages.
