Main Description
From the Middle Ages onwards, St. Catherine of Alexandria was considered a leading figure in Christian education due to her rhetorical triumph over 50 heathen philosophers. The three dramas edited here for the first time are the major testimonies to the fascinating reception accorded to St. Catherine as a subject in early Jesuit drama. The plays of 1576 and 1577 are among the earliest known instances of Jesuit martyrdom drama, which subsequently played a dominant role in Jesuit theatre. Understanding of the texts is facilitated by a critical apparatus, a metric translation, an introduction, and a commentary.
