El Cabellero de Gracia

by Tirso de Molina, edited by Marta Gutierrez Sotomayor


Tirso de Molina (1579 - 1648) is one of the most important Spanish playwrights of the seventeenth century. This mercedarian friar has an extensive production from which some 80 plays are preserved, including swashbuckling comedies, hagiographic comedies or mystery plays. Among his most famous works are Don Gil de las calzas verdes and El burlador de Sevilla.


El Caballero de Gracia is one of the lesser known works of Tirso de Molina. Its protagonist, Jacobo de Gracia, was a sixteenth century Italian priest who spent much of his life in Madrid, a city enriched by his various social works. This devotional comedy is Tirso’s tribute to the figure of the priest, who lived no less than 102 years.

MARTA GUTIERREZ (Murcia, 1983) has a PhD in Spanish Language and Literature from the University of Murcia, with a doctoral thesis on El Caballero de Gracia, the Tirso de Molina’s play. Currently, she teaches classes of Spanish Language and Literature.
