Dans la philosophie antique, la vertu est un ensemble de quatre valeurs : le courage, la justice, la tempérance et la sagesse. En mettant face à face deux personnages, l'un chrétien l'autre musulman, Antonio de Villegas démontre que tous deux possèdent ces quatre qualités. (...) En puisant dans la pensée antique, Villegas tente d'établir un nouvel ordre, en dehors du champ religieux. Les valeurs qu'il propose n'excluent ni les chrétiens ni les musulmans car tous deux sont les héritiers de cette pensée gréco-romaine qui a ainsi l'avantage de réunir au lieu de diviser. (...) Dans cette optique L'Abencérage (1565) est un texte subversif car les valeurs qu'il promeut s'opposent de façon radicale au processus d'unification religieuse qui élimine la liberté de conscience, ainsi qu'à l'Inquisition qui use de la force pour parvenir à cette unité religieuse. Dans ce texte, Antonio de Villegas ose affirmer que la vertu est plus efficace que la coercition car il préserve la paix sociale ainsi que la stabilité du royaume. (extrait de la présentation)
