Abstract: People living in Baroque times had a great love of dramatic representations in all their forms. This love of theatre extended into all areas, including those that are not usually viewed as theatrical. Theatre permeated every aspect of life. During the period religion was dramatised, Mass was elevated to the form of ritual and processions became elaborate, spectacular events. Theatre became so pervasive that even daily living became an act costume, gesture, etiquette were all ritualised.
