The Heretic – UK. Valladolid and the surrounding area are lovingly and evocatively described in the book, and Delibes artfully uses the changes and growth of the city in the narrative; throughout, Valladolid is an integral part of the novel.

In this winner of the Premio Nacional de Narrativa, Spain’s most prestigious literary prize, Miguel Delibes takes us into the heart of sixteenth-century Spain. The most obvious challenge is far away: At times one suspects he married Teodorima simply in the hopes of literally being overwhelmed by her, but he’s a scrappy little guy and for a while the mismatched couple make it work. The second part, ‘The Heresy’, jumps ahead to when Cipriano has completed his studies and begins his career as a very successful businessman.

It takes Cipriano a while before he is receptive to the challenges, but ultimately he is convinced. Over a hundred pages long, this part of the book only covers Cipriano’s childhood and early teen years.

While the signs particularly Cipriano’s birth-date are ominous, Delibes doesn’t bog down the narrative with a particular message, or theology or history: Their relationship — a striking variation on the Oedipal theme — is torn asunder relatively early on, and he is unable to find Minervina again until near the end of his life. Once he has finished his studies Cipriano takes over his by then dead father’s business, and becomes a successful entrepeneur. This is very much a life-story, following the life and career of Cipriano from birth to death, and his role as a heretic truly only comes to the fore in the final section and chapters.


Still, from the first, his embrace of religion isn’t wholehearted but rather slightly sceptical. In Cipriano’s Spain there is even less openness — but change is in the air, and the questioning of doctrine inevitable.

The Heretic by Miguel Delibes. Cipriano is an interesting character, marked less by his father’s mistreatment than the loss of his one true love, Minervina. The book isn’t truly surprising, but it is also far from predictable, a confident writer taking his time — while keeping the reader in suspense — in leading to his conclusions.

El Principe Herrje Miguel Delibes. That he is destined to get mixed up with all that is also made clear from early on, as Cipriano even notes that he was born on the same day as migeul Reformation: Here and later Delibes uses him as a case-study of the changing economic and business-environment in the Spain of that time, the sort of historical colour that helps add texture to the hdreje without ever sounding too much like it’s pieced together from a textbook.

But before long, the Spanish Inquisition will drive the Reformers to put their lives at stake. Fortunately, Cipriano’s wet-nurse, Minervina — a young teenager who had lost her own child — is a loving caregiver and protector, the mother-figure he needs. Hereue family dynamics are very nicely handled: Delines an odd but plausible relationship, eventually shattering over their inability to conceive a child. It doesn’t quite work — the small child doesn’t really understand or appreciate the use of the catechism and the rest, but he does aim to please.
