"The Woman Saint in Spanish Golden Age Drama" examines the various ways in which male and female dramatists present the figure of the ascetic woman in seventeenth-century Spanish theater. Play-wrights depict her not only as the solitary initiate of a rite of passage struggling to purify herself to approach spiritual perfection; they also focus on the clash between ascetic practice and the desires of family, suitors, and patriarchal society. She may appear as both a forbidden fruit and Christ figure that is ultimately persecuted, scapegoated, and executed by a fearful society.
