Chapter Summary

Hierusalem verwoest (Jerusalem Destroyed) has never been a favourite among Vondel scholars, and that is putting things mildly. This chapter obviously, is in line with the reading method is meant to exemplify, the New Historicism. It follows a different 'contextual' trail that allows us to connect Vondel's text in a more direct manner to the historical circumstances in which it was produced. The chapter relates Hierusalem verwoest to a question that seems immediately relevant to the historical materials that Vondel drew upon in his play and that was clearly in the air at the time when he wrote it, even if less spectacularly so than the Oldenbarnevelt case.
