This study is an admirable addition to the corpus treating the Auto Sacramental in Golden Age Spain. Through this book, Dr. Donald Thaddeus Dietz demonstrates the allegorization of New Testament parables by dramatists in sixteenth and seventeenth century Spain. Forming an excellent introduction to the genres of the Auto and the parable, this work opens the genre for a contemporary reader, and contextualizes it within its historiographic and literary contexts.
