Physical Sight and Spiritual Light in Three Sixteenth-Century Plays of the Low Countries

Steenbrugge, Charlotte

Marginalia, Vol.3 (2006)

Abstract

I shall investigate the representation of physical blindness as spiritual blindness and of acquiring the capacity to see light as spiritual rebirth in three sixteenth-century plays of the Low Countries: Tspel van Maria ghecompareirt by de Claerheyt (The Play of Mary Compared to Clarity, 1511 or 1512) by Cornelis Everaert, De Geboren Blinde by Lauris Jansz. (The Man Born Blind, 1579), and De Blinde van Jericho by D.V. Coornhert (The Blind Man of Jericho, c.1582).
