This one-day symposium will examine the dramatization of early modern philosophies of hell and damnation. We will ask how Renaissance drama explored the hazards of judgement, damnation, and perdition.
- What did playwrights think it meant to sell one’s soul to the devil?
- What was their definition of sin?
- What role did the devil play in theatre – and in people’s everyday lives?
