1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A satire, it tells the story of a Spanish king's desire to see his own queen naked, a desire frustrated by the powerful Catholic clergy. His turning to Marfisa, a most beautiful and clever prostitute, instead of quenching his ardor only inflames it. Meanwhile, in the rest of the kingdom, mysterious sightings of snakes, cracks in the ground and flying beings are reported even as Spain prepares to do battle with England and Flanders The royal desire then becomes a national issue that merits a momentous and acrimonious debate among the clergy during a special meeting convened by the grand inquisitor himself. Will God himself punish Spain with demons and defeat if the queen were to show her body to her beloved king?" http://www.goodreads.com
