The article focuses on Mr. Meisner's theatrical production "Mandragola." Though Pope Leo X thought it worth while to build a theatre expressly to exhibit this play in, his successors have found its anti-clericalism less congenial. Though there was a small production of it in Florence in 1948, but three years later, the Demo-Christian government stamped it Non approvato. Mandragola seems not to have been translated into English till a drama critic published his version in 1927.
