Mina García, an associate professor of Spanish in the Department of World Languages and Cultures, published an article in Málaga, Spain.
The article, “A pact with the Devil in 17th Century Spain,” analyzes how the demonic pact was used by some relevant playwrights of the Spanish Golden Age such as Mira de Amescua, Lope de Vega and Calderón de la Barca. Immersed in the midst of the Counter-Reformation Movement, these authors debated the role of the devil, free will and predestination on stage.
This series, PATRIMONIO LITERARIO ANDALUZ, is organized by Antonio A. Gómez Yebra, a professor at the Universidad de Málaga, the institution that supports the publication. The series is based on Andalusian writers and also those who lived or wrote on Andalusia, Spain.
