  • Title: La Cucina infernale e la mirabile illusione: Il "Dulcitius" di Rosvita fra drammaturgia e innografia [Hrotsvitha used the Christian poetry of Prudentius in the composition of her plays, but she borrowed from the Roman dramatist Terence for comic relief and to lampoon enemies of the faith. In "Dulcitius," the pagan judge is humiliated by devils when he enters a kitchen while seeking to exploit captive Christian girls. Instead he embraces pots and pans, soiling his garment and making a lot of noise. This comedy was intended to reinforce the religious message of the play by humiliating the evil judge. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
