'Auto de Sancta Bárbara' : a herança e os arranjos
Maria Idalina Resina Rodrigues
AbstractThe aim of this article is to present some material with a view to a more elaborate analysis of Auto de Santa Bárbara by Afonso Álvares. It points out the relative importance of the playright in the context of the Portuguese theatre after Gil Vicente. It also enhances the way the play right dramatizes a religious theme dear to the best literary and iconographic traditions. It focus particularly on problems related to the techniques and details of character construction. These characters are compared to and contrasted with others the author of this article came across in texts such as Legenda Aurea by Jacobo de Voragine and the contemporary Flos Sanctorum. Characters are analysed taking into account the way Gil Vicente has also dealt with them.
