The second play from the York Corpus Christi Plays deals with the creation of the world to the Fifth Day, based off the first Chapter of Genesis. It overlaps with Play One (the Creation of the Heavens). God appears as a craftsman- the world is "measured and made"- but he relies on his voice, not his hands.
The play was originally performed by the Guild of Plasterers (or Daubers). The existing Guild of Building, re-established in 1954, includes this trade and take responsibility for this Play in the modern-day waggon performances.
