|Paper 635-b||Saint Stephen’s Farsed Epistles as Catechetical Message|
Index terms: Hagiography, Language and Literature - French or Occitan, Liturgy, Sermons and Preaching
In my paper I will expose how the Saint Stephen’s farsed epistles have a catechetical message. In their texts we can find a lot of references and samples of the correct way to live: the defense of the Christian message, a model death in Christ, the forgiveness of those who give us pain and sorrows are reinforced with farses and tropes to the original Luke’s Acts text both in Latin and, especially, in romance languages: French, Occitan and Catalan from 12th century to 15th.
