Among Clerics and Devils or The Hooded One is a theatrical work by the renowned Spanish writer José Zorrilla. Set in the Burgos of the 15th century, during the reign of the Catholic Monarchs, the play delves into one of the most characteristic features of Romanticism: the exploration and nostalgia for national history.
The play is divided into “three plays,” a structure that evokes both game and drama. Zorrilla dedicates this work to Don Julián García, a prebendary of the Cathedral of Burgos, and in the dedication reveals the personal and emotional nature surrounding his writing. Returning to Spain after twenty years of absence, the author expresses his gratitude for being able to die in his homeland and among his people.
Zorrilla presents the play as a “toy,” light entertainment for the audience, but not without seriousness and reflection. In his dedication, the author also addresses the circumstances surrounding the production of the play, including time constraints and political considerations that led him to change the title and content of the third act. Moreover, he rejects any interpretation that attributes political intentions to his work, emphasizing his aversion to politics.
One of the most interesting aspects of the play is its focus on the moral and ethical conflicts that arise “among clerics and devils,” a metaphor that encompasses both the spiritual and the earthly realms. The choice of title reveals the inherent ambiguity in the characters and situations portrayed, placing the work in a broader context of social, ethical, and spiritual tensions.
The play also stands out for its appreciation of Spanish aesthetics and history, reflected in its setting in 15th-century Burgos and its allusion to historical figures like the Catholic Monarchs. In this sense, “Among Clerics and Devils” is not only a play but also a document that captures the essence of an era and a national sentiment.
Among Clerics and Devils is a complex and multifaceted work that addresses themes of morality, history, and national identity. Although Zorrilla considers it an “incorrect and incomplete” work, its thematic richness and deep connection with the social and spiritual concerns of its time make it a valuable piece, both in the context of Spanish theater and in the broader study of Romanticism and Spanish culture.
