Monday Trivia

The answer to yesterday's question is:
The 4th of July.

Today's question is:
In what year (+ or – 25 years) did the town of Oberammergau, in present-day Germany, begin its decennial Passion Play, even today keeping a vow that town residents made to God if He would spare them the ravages of the bubonic plague?

(Oh come on, just guess!)

Wow, that's a good one Darren. I've been to Oberammergau, quite an interesting place. However, I can't say I remember when it started other than it was a long, long, long time ago. I'll throw out a swag of 1500.
