abstract

The convent life of cloistered nuns in Portugal during the 17th and 18th centuries presents appealing material for satire. It creates a new farcical character: the nun’s beau. The entremeses (short farces) – the theatrical genre most suitable for satire – that depict the relations between the characters do not strictly follow the rules set for the genre, but rather establish new categories as the entremés de monja (nuns’ farce), not to be found elsewhere in the Spanish tradition. This paper studies the representation of the transgressive behaviours of the supposedly rigorous canonical models in a relevant set of plays, unique in the history of Iberian theater which were banned by Portuguese censorship boards.
