Jesuit Johannes Eder, Virilis Constantia (Manly Constancy, 1696), a classic hagiographic text. The last is Agnus inter Haedos (A Lamb among the Goats, 1738), a Latin -Czech school play, which was put on at the Jesuit seminary in the New Town, Prague, by grammar -school pupils. In these texts the narrative of Shimon Abeles is adapted to the image of a new martyr by repeated formulas, fi gures of speech, tropes, and topoi. These literary elements were common both to medieval literature and to early modern writing. Analysis of hagiographic commonplaces may show us how the Baroque legend came into being and was then transformed in hagiographic literature because of religious interests. They also reveal stereotypes of Jews, the roots of modern antisemitism.
