is opposition to religious authority, typically in social or political matters. Historical anti-clericalism has mainly been opposed to the influence of Roman Catholicism.

Adultery
Adultery
Adultery
(from Latin
Latin
adulterium) is extramarital sex that is considered objectionable on social, religious, moral, or legal grounds. Though what sexual activities constitute adultery varies, as well as the social, religious, and legal consequences, the concept exists in many cultures and is similar in Christianity, Islam, and Judaism.[1] A single act of sexual intercourse is generally sufficient to constitute adultery, and a more long-term sexual relationship is sometimes referred to as an affair. Historically, many cultures have considered adultery to be a very serious crime. Adultery
Adultery
often incurred severe punishment, usually for the woman and sometimes for the man, with penalties including capital punishment, mutilation, or torture.[2] Such punishments have gradually fallen into disfavor, especially in Western countries

Metatheatre
Metatheatre, and the closely related term metadrama, describe aspects of a play that draw attention to its nature as drama or theatre, or to the circumstances of its performance. These may include: the direct address of the audience (especially in soliloquies, asides, prologues, and epilogues); expression of an awareness of the presence of the audience (whether they are addressed directly or not); an acknowledgement of the fact that the people performing are actors (and not actually the characters they are playing); an element whose meaning depends on the difference between the represented time and place of the drama (the fictional world) and the time and place of its theatrical presentation (the reality of the theatre event); plays-within-plays (or masques, spectacles, or other forms of performance within the drama); references to acting, theatre, dramatic writing, spectatorship, and the frequently employed metaphor according to which "all the world's a stage" (Theatrum mundi); scenes

Los Trabajos De Persiles Y Sigismunda
The Works of Persiles and Sigismunda is a romance or Byzantine novel by Miguel de Cervantes
Miguel de Cervantes
Saavedra, his last work and one that stands in opposition to the more famous novel Don Quixote
Don Quixote
by its embrace of the fantastic rather than the commonplace.[1] While Cervantes is known primarily for Don Quixote, widely regarded as one of the foremost classic novels of all time, he himself believed the Persiles, as it is commonly called, to be his crowning achievement.[2] He completed it only three days before his death, and it was posthumously published in 1617.[3] References[edit]^ Sacchetti, Maria (2001).

Viaje Del Parnaso
Viaje del Parnaso
Viaje del Parnaso
(sometimes called Viaje al Parnaso) (Spanish: Journey to Parnassus) is a poetic work by Miguel de Cervantes. It was first published in 1614, two years before the author's death. The chief object of the poem is to survey contemporary poets, assembled on an imaginary boat to Parnassus, and ridicule (and sometimes throw overboard) those who, in Cervantes' opinion, are deficient. This satire is of a peculiar character: an effusion of sportive humour, leaving it a matter of doubt whether Cervantes intended to praise or to ridicule the individuals whom he points out as being particularly worthy of the favour of Apollo

El Coloquio De Los Perros
El coloquio de los perros (The Conversation of the Dogs or Dialogue between Cipión and Berganza) is a short story from the collection Novelas ejemplares. Written by Miguel de Cervantes, the author of Don Quixote, it is actually the continuation of a story entitled El casamiento engañoso (The Deceitful Wedding), which is about a dishonest suitor duped out of his wealth by his conniving young bride. The experience lands the suitor in a hospital from venereal disease, and through a window of it, presumably in a delirium, he sees and hears two dogs begin to speak at the stroke of midnight. This gives Cervantes an opportunity to humorously satirize the society in which he lived; the dogs, Cipión (sometimes translated as Scipio, the English equivalent of the name) and Berganza, discuss their experiences with their human masters and other aspects of society such as greed, Romani, dishonesty, honor, and witchcraft
