With the advantages of syncretism, European technology and knowledge in the next period skyrocketed to take the lead in the world. I'm sure there is a place for Christian themed plays in churches still. Under 14 October in this martyrology made at St Augustine’s in the late 11th century, someone noted the deaths of ‘Harold, king of the English, and many of our brothers.’ The entry for each day in the martyrology was supposed to be read out in the daily chapter meeting of the monastery, and so the Battle of Hastings may have been commemorated there every year.
