|Abstract:||<p>Molière's relationship with the Church and its followers will be examined. He shall discuss the accusations of immorality and impiety that were levelled by modern and contemporary critics against the playwright and his plays. The comments of these critics will serve to reveal the religious criticism that was made against the writer and his three plays, L'Ecole des femmes, Le Tartuffe, and Dom Juan. We shall try to determine whether Molière's main pre-occupation when he wrote his plays was to attack religion and religious people or not. An attempt will be made to give an answer to the question after studying the works mentioned above.</p>|
