The Renegado, History, Analysis
-Hot time in England (1623) because King James I was trying to reach peace with Catholic Spain
by engineering a marriage between his son Charles and the Princess of Spain
-There is pushback across England to this idea due to the Armada and the Spanish trying
to convert the English back to Catholicism
-The Renegado is oddly Catholic it was licensed and performed, but there was no indication of
complaints or prosecution following it
-One of the heroic characters is a Jesuit Jesuits were often feared by the English
because they pushed conversion back to the church of Rome
-It is a play that was of great interest English people were interested in Islam and the Ottoman
Empire
-England was nothing in the early 17th century, it was still small
-The European continent was much more productive in art and literature people like
Cervantes weren’t reading Shakespeare, but people like Massinger were reading
Cervantes
-This play also shows us the beginnings of globalization, the incentive for global trade
-At this time, relics were illegal, fake, were legally declared as void/a con
-Direct reference to a relic (Paulina’s necklace) in the play
-The Ottoman is associated with boundless wealth, luxury, and beautiful art this is not
characteristic of the English at this time
-Catholics believed in late baptism, but not Protestants Donusa’s baptism is therefore
characteristically Catholic
-The meat pie sent to Vitelli is kind of eucharistic, because it is the means for his salvation
-The play ends with despair of the Muslim rulers (Asambeg), not celebration
-Victory of Christianity over Islam
