Particular Saints draws on church, art, and theater history to illustrate that Renaissance stage Antonios are a type, representing a tradition familiar to early modern audiences and exploited by Shakespeare in portraying his four major characters named Antonio. Whether as central a character as Mark Antony or as apparently marginal as Prospero's false brother, all Antonios share at least their capacity for raising difficult, unsettling questions about love and loving, charity and its limits.
