User: During the English Civil War, many Puritans were anti-royalist. That is, they did not want a king or queen. They were also famously at odds with the theater. During the war, the theaters were used to defend the monarch. What is the most likely explanation of why? Puritans hated the idea of fun, and theater-goers hated them. Theaters depended on the patronage of kings and queens. Most actors were Catholic, just like "Bloody Mary." Many Puritans did not celebrate Christmas, which takes place on the historical day that the feast of Dionysus was celebrated.

Weegy: b.Theaters depended on the patronage of kings and queens.

User: What is the most likely explanation for the decline of Greek drama? The cultural center was Athens and Athens lost power. For some reason, the only decent playwrights lived within the same generation. Painting and sculpture became more fashionable than drama. Apollo usurped Dionysus as the god of poetry in the popular view.

Weegy: a. The cultural center was Athens and Athens lost power.
