Diables et saints : rôle des diables dans les mystères hagiographiques français

0.00 CHF tax incl.

Devils’ in hagiographic mystery plays have a crucial role in driving the theatrical action. They act as foils for saints, as angels’ scapegoats, and as images of evil, adversity and otherness. In a theatrical genre that is as much about entertainment as about ritual, these aspects of their role have sometimes been overlooked in favour of the comedy they provide. The devils impart Christian ideology while embracing the carnivalesque. The devils’ dual nature – condemned to do evil but destined to teach good – holds an endless fascination.
