Synopsis: The auto sacramental, whose greatest exponent was Don Pedro Calderón de la Barca, was a uniquely Spanish form of theatre which flourished in the seventeenth century and which gave theatrical interpretation to various points of Catholic doctrine. The Great Stage of the World was written for outdoor performance as part of the public Corpus Christi celebrations some time between 1633 and 1636, and is a beautifully structured allegory depicting the fate of mankind through a play within a play. It has been seen by many scholars as the key sacramental play, illuminating the whole of Spanish baroque drama.
