What is Paradise Play?

Question

What is paradise play?

Answer

Paradise play is a medieval play or drama recounting Genesis 3 —the fall of Adam and Eve into sin by violating God’s word, eating a fruit of Knowledge, and God’s promise of a Redeemer born of a woman.

“I will put enmities between you and the woman, and your seed and her seed: she shall crush your head, and you shall lie in wait for her heel” (Genesis 3:15).

The play performed in Advent weeks, which lasted 3-4 weeks before Christmas.

Drama Firdaus (Paradise Play) masih bertahan di Český Krumlov, Czechoslovakia, dari tahun 1290, pertama kali drama ini masuk ke daerah ini,  hingga tahun 1912. Di bawah pemerintahan komunis, drama ini dihentikan tahun 1948, namun hidup lagi tahun 1989 setelah komunisme runtuh.1 Berkat dokumentasi terhadap drama ini sebelum pelarangan, maka diketahui bahwa pohon Natal ternyata bersumber dari properti drama ini.
This play has been preserved in Český Krumlov and Oberufer since medieval era.

This drama anticipated nativity play recounting the birth of Jesus as fulfillment of God’s promise in Genesis 3: 15.

This medieval drama was very popular to the extent that the audience imitated the Paradise tree in the drama and preserved its parade for thousands years.
