Abstract

In Madame Bovary anti-clerical Homais recognizes that the Bible, like mystery plays, is offensive. Consequently, he does not want scripture to fall into the hands of his daughter Athalie. His remarks and other spicy details suggest elements of a farcical mystery play in the story of adulterous Emma.
