Abstract

This article discusses poetical evolutions in Jesuit theater in Flanders through a comparison between plays of the seventeenth and eighteenth century. While most research in the field of Jesuit theater focusses on the first centuries of the order, disregarding the eighteenth century because of its decreased social relevance, this article surveys significant changes in the eighteenth-century plays. Although the continuities of baroque spectacle in the different phases of the order have been accepted, Tjoelker (2016) shows the French classical influence on poetical texts of Jesuits in German regions. The comparison in this article shows that similar poetical changes can be seen on stage in the Jesuit colleges in Flanders.
