  • Abstract: The role of drama in the spreading of Reformation ideas remains greatly underestimated. Details of a polemic performance nearby Lille in 1563 show the links between protestant preaching and militant drama, in a context of a repressive legislation. Thanks to a study of the sermons in the play Vérité as well as the documented reactions of the audience, we see can how the stage could be used as a way of relaying the word of the preacher. One can thus understand the role that such a performance could play in the religious conflicts taking place in the Southern Low Countries in the 1560’s.
