El renegado de Jerusalén: la lucha contra el infiel y las relaciones hispano-francesas de comienzos del siglo XVII

Sánchez Jiménez, Raquel
This paper examines an unpublished theatre piece conventionally attributed to the famous Spanish Baroque playwright Luis Vélez de Guevara and titled El renegado de Jerusalén, little known of due to its preservation in a difficult to read manuscript. This historical drama depicts the battle of Hattin (3-4 July 1187), which led to the Third Crusade (1187-1192), emphasizing the agreement between Count Raymond III of Tripoli and Sultan Saladin against Guy of Lusignan, King of Jerusalem with his wife Sibylla. This research documents the play’s presence in catalogs and reference works, offers a description of the manuscript that contains it and summarizes its plot. In addition, its literary and historical sources are analyzed, a probable time period for its writing is proposed and its generic peculiarities are discussed in order to offer an suitable interpretation of its historical-polit-ical meaning, linked to its complex referential and propaganda potential ​
