Don Gil, un hombre sabio y religioso, es tentado por una ocasión que se le presenta de gozar de la sensualidad con Lisarda y la aprovecha, emprendiendo a partir de ese momento un camino sin retorno que le llevará a pactar con el diablo. Lisarda se encuentra en la misma situación pues ha transgredido la autoridad de su padre negándose a casar con el pretendiente que le propuso. Los dos se sitúan al margen de los valores establecidos en la época y se arrojan al camino diabólico en una impetuosa fuga hacia adelante, convirtiéndose en bandoleros que viven y actúan ajenos a la moral vigente llevando a cabo toda suerte de actos delictivos. Son así, figuras diabólicas, que encarnan todas las maldades que se pueden atribuir al demonio. Son ahora esclavos del demonio que no atienden más que a su faceta carnal y a entregarse a las bajas pasiones. La aparición del diablo llamado Angelio colma la perfidia de Gil, que le vende su alma a cambio de aprender nigromancia para gozar a la hermana de Lisarda, Leonor, de quien se acaba de enamorar. Lisarda, personaje contradictorio y llevado por sus impulsos vuelve a la vista a dios, aunque para purgar sus pecados se vea humillada a la condición de esclava, el encuentro final de Gil con Leonor hace que se descubra el engaño pues desaparece ante su vista cuando pretendía haberla conseguido, este es el arranque del desengaño para Gil que descubre con ello su error. La verdad divina le ha sido, tras tantas horrendas peripecias al fin desvelada, volviendo a su ser primero de hombre religioso, sabio y virtuoso por intercesión del ángel de la guarda que vence en combate a la maldad

Un familia judía de la España de Alfonso VIII es desterrada por éste de la ciudad de Toledo. Hacia 1270, la Crónica General de Alfonso X el Sabio alude por primera vez a un episodio de la vida de Alfonso VIII (1155-1214): en 1170, recién casado con Leonor de Aquitania, se enamoró de una judía de Toledo, Raquel, la "Fermosa", y se encerró con ella durante casi siete años olvidando a su legítima mujer y su reino. Los nobles de la Corte decidieron matar a la judía. Este argumento ha sido tratado entre otros por Lorenzo de Sepúlveda en la Romanza (1551), Mira de Amescua, Luis de Ulloa y Pereyra, Juan Bautista Diamante y García de la Huerta (1772)
Los empeños de una casa = Pawns of a house : (a Mexican Baroque fête) by Juana Inés de la Cruz( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in Spanish and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this hilarious seventeenth-century cloak-and-sword comedy, eight characters become entangled in a web of deceitful and sincere promises when they find themselves thrown together in the house of Don Pedro de Arellano. As they struggle to fulfill or escape these commitments, the action involves female rivalry, love triangles, and confusion of identities. All the characters scurry about the house, some manipulating others like pawns on a game board. In the end, the passive characters regain the initiative and make way for the comic solution of multiple marriages."--Jacket
