Hagiografia e teatro : os discutíveis méritos de um Auto de Santo António
Maria Idalina Resina Rodrigues
AbstractThis article focuses on the Auto de Santo António, by Afonso Álvares which was censored by the Inquisition in 1624, reviewing its hagiographic souces – almost always dealt with in a relaxed, even if kind, way – and studying the devote prayers “invented” by the author, the meaning of the struggle between Angel and Devil in the context of Antonian religious vocation, and finally, theatre within the theatre, the “introduction” by the Representer, in which the saint’s miracle performing profile is already outlined.
