Abstract: In this thesis, I examine the way the morality tradition influenced the works of Christopher Marlowe. Marlowe used conventions of the morality traditon, and in doing so, examined the power and the limits of theatre. In chapter one, I look at The Jew of Malta. I examine claims by past critics that Barabas is a Vice figure and instead argue that the play contains a struggle between an old type of Vice personified in Barabas and a new Vice seen in Femeze. In chapter two, I look at the possibility for Faustus's salvation. I show the ways that Marlowe uses morality play conventions to undermine salvation. In my final chapter, I look at Tamburlaine. In Tamburlaine, Marlowe shows the limits of theatrical power. In the end, all three of these plays are concerned with what the theatre can and cannot perform.
