Triumph of the Saints by Pedro de Morales was conceived as part of the great celebrations that were celebrated in Mexico on November 2, 1578, on the occasion of the arrival at the Cathedral of some relics from Rome.
The plot of the play responds to a classic theme of Jesuit theater throughout Spain: the persecutions suffered by Christians and the final triumph of the Church.
Following the usual thread of action, at the beginning of the work the motives that impel the Emperor Diocletian to put an end to the Christians are exposed. The persecution and martyrdom of these are then narrated. And finally it refers to the conversion of Constantine to Christianity, after the death of his predecessor.
A theme, in short, very cultivated by religious literature and in whose treatment we hardly find deviations with respect to pieces of the same theme elaborated throughout Europe.
The innovative character of the Triumph of the Saints can be seen in the formal aspect. Pedro de Morales distributes the piece in five acts and the tripartite structure, composed of introit, play and song, show a clear influence of the Italian drama of the first half of the sixteenth century. Morales reveals himself as a profound connoisseur of the literary “avant-garde” of the moment.
The abundance of endecasyllable verses and Italianate combinations, together with the echoes of Garcilaso place tragedy in a prominent place within the new poetic currents of the time in the Spanish language. It should be added that this is unusual at a time when Latin America used to receive everything that arrived from Europe with delay.
