Also, a morality play of the same name, written sometime around, but after, 1485. Basically the drama covers the end of the life of Everyman, who is a metaphor for, obviously, every man. Everyman must go on a pilgrimage to redeem himself in Judgment, namely by having a witness tell of his good acts. I will not spoil the whole thing for you, but the moral of the story fits nicely into a one-liner: Regardless of your class, your wealth, and your morality, you will eventually only be saved by your good priest and your good deeds. While heavily biased towards Catholicism, the generalization to Christianity isn't a big stretch.
