Overview

Sins of the Fathers considers sins as nodes of cultural anxiety and explores the tensions between competing organizational categories for moral thought and behaviours,

namely the Seven Deadly Sins and the Ten Commandments. Hilaire Kallendorf explores the decline and rise of these organizational categories against critical transformations of the early modern

period, such as the accession of Spain to a position of world dominance and the arrival of a new courtly culture to replace an old warrior ethos.
This ground-breaking study is the first to

consider Spanish Golden Age comedias as an archive of moral knowledge. Kallendorf has examined over 800 of these plays to illustrate how they provide insight into aspects of early modern

experience such as food, sex, work, and money. Finally, Kallendorf engages the theoretical terminology of Marxist literary criticism to demonstrate the inherent ambiguity of cultural change.

Editorial Reviews

Renaissance Quarterly vol 67:04:2014 - Gabriela Carrion
‘Who knew sin could be so much fun? Sins of Fathers proves just that in an engaging account of moral transgression on the early modern Spanish stage… Given its wealth of evidence, its readability, and, above all, relevance, this book is far more likely to awaken envy rather than sloth in the reader.’
The Catholic Historical Review; vol 100:03:2014 - Bruno Damiani
‘This is a superb scholarly accomplishment.’
