This small 12th-century Easter play tells us how the three Marys walk to the tomb early in the morning after the Sabbath, wondering who will roll away the tombstone. Arriving at the grave, the grave appears to have already been opened, and the dead disappeared; in a short dialogue the angels tell them that Christ has risen.The 'Hellumse Easter play' has been narrated in a unique 12th-century missal that was once used in the St. Walfridus church of Hellum in Groningen.
