It is not just spiritual wisdom that Rojas subjects to parody in Celestina, but also
other philosophical, ethical learning. Critics have shown how the first Act,
famously attributed by Rojas to an unspecified earlier author, introduces a pattern
in which references to classical auctoritas, such as Aristotle, Virgil, and Seneca,
are humorously undermined in favor of insights gained from worldly experience
and skepticism.25 This undermining of authority tragically culminates in the final
pages of ...

There plainly must have been some prior disposition on the part of Celestina's
authors that would attract them to texts organized like those of the great Stoic
sage. These served handily both as source and as models because their
rhetorical characteristics were the ones Ro- jas and his predecessor thought
elegant and appropriate. Then too, one could raise the question of why these
texts of Seneca best known to Rojas and his contemporaries should become
models for speeches in a ...

Seneca's alleged anti-feminism is partly a figment of Sempronio's imagination,
partly due to contemporary anthologies and sentence collections based on
pseudo-Senecan texts, and mostly the result of dubious quotemanship. 4 But this,
as I say more at leisure in Seneca and "Celestina," is precisely what the art of
quotation amounts to in Celestina: with the misquotations, altered quotations and
partial quotations proffered by the characters, the authors may well have been
making fun ...

Louise Fothergill-Payne notes the presence of Seneca in this dialogue, but she
does not prove it with parallel ideas or words. Seneca is present in isolated
sentences of act I, not in the type of discourse. See Seneca and Celestina (
Cambridge: University Press, 1988), 47. 26 Summa Theologica, Transl. (
Encyclopedia Britannica [Chicago, 1955] 1:641). "Ad visionem divinae essentiae

He eliminates, but in such frugal measure that there is warrant for Moratin's
remark : that you might remove every fault from the Celestina without adding a
syllable to the text. At times the writer in him is His Pedantry mastered by the
pedant: as when Parmeno talks of 'Apuleius ' and the Asse,' or when his fellow-
varlet, Sempronio, babbles on end of Alexander, Minerva, Virgil, and Seneca. But
this ostentation of learning is a darling vice with writers, great and little ; and

The main protagonist in the play, the witch Celestina, is modelled upon that of
Medea and Canidia, the witch figures in the work of Ovid, Horace, and Seneca.
Celestina is a woman of ill repute and a professional who traffics in love magic
and charms. As a sorcerer she has a clientele among prostitutes and other
denizens of the urban Renaissance underworld. Many of the spells she uses are
those described in classical texts, and she conjures up the classical gods, in
imitation of ...
