El hábito no hace al monje: José Soller, a peregrino mulato Accused of Impersonating a Priest, and Other Disguised Figures in the Early Modern World (Conference Paper/Presentation)
Title: El hábito no hace al monje: José Soller, a peregrino mulato Accused of Impersonating a Priest, and Other Disguised Figures in the Early Modern World
Author: John K. Moore, Jr.
Abstract: This paper offers a comparative analysis of early modern historical and fictional figures who dressed in disguise. The principal narrative stems from a Spanish legal case from 1693-1694, El fiscal de su Majestad contra José Soller, peregrino mulato, por fingirse sacerdote y otros delitos. My talk will compare Soller’s story and mode of disguise with those of other historical figures such as Catalina de Erauso, the monja alférez, and Martín Garatuza, also a priest impersonator, as well as fictional characters such as the morisco Ricote in the second part of Don Quijote.
