The article analyzes the pedagogical competition between the theater with its poetic instructions and the church with its instructive rituals, preaching and liturgy in Late Antiquity. Within the framework of the Christian pedagogical tradition, there has been a change in meanings for existing terminology regarding theater. The term "actor" began to mean a hypocritical person pretending to be righteous, and the "theater" from a school for the worthy turned into a school for the obscene. This made it possible to affirm the new aesthetics of the ritual and secure for the church, and not for the theater, the right to give instruction as a strengthening of the correct understanding of what is due.
