Began with Muslim rule of Spain
Theatre was a metaphor for life
Praised for honorable behavior and shamed for dishonorable behavior
Often expressed through reputations
Value in chastity
It is debated whether the Spanish code of honor is in line with Christian morality or not
Theme of honor is less central, but continued today
The code of honor has been redefined to fit the values of modern society
Spanish culture in the Golden Age valued honor in all of its forms whether it be in regards to family, workplace, administration, governmental, and other related areas. Naturally, because honor was such an imperative part of society this was reflected in the playwright’s works of the time. The incorporation of honor is a central theme in many of Spanish Golden age plays, and even hinted at in contemporary Spanish works as well.
