I’m not an expert, but it’s late Sunday night and I may be able to give you a brief answer so I’ll do what I can.English drama originated in Mystery or Morality Plays, plays that depicted biblical scenes.  Some depicted biblical miracles, others biblical history.  They were popular from Chaucer to Shakespeare.One of the progressions of Mystery/Morality plays involved moving from strictly depicting biblical scenes, to depicting nonbiblical scenes that promoted biblical values and beliefs.  One such example of this in the famous, Everyman.  Over time, the plays became more secularized, and this probably led to disapproval by church authorities.  The reformation probably also contributed to the virtual disappearance of these plays, since iconic images  and pageantry fell out of favor (from The Cambridge Guide to Literature in English).
