Is an allegorical play performed in 1517, written and directed by Gil Vicente. It is called the Ship of Hell because it is the the future destination for most of it's crew mates and passengers after wrong judgement which most of it's plot revolves around.
Trilogy of the Ships
ISM: The Trilogy of the Ships is most related to Humanism, because Humanism is the literary movement and Gil Vicente's paintings triggered the Portuguese Renaissance and the Iberian Renaissance.
**Unfortunately, The Trilogy of Ships is not in a museum or library, and it is only published in the two languages Vicente wrote in, Spanish and Portuguese. I wish that this play was internationally published in a variety of languages because it has such a good plot and seems like an interesting piece to read.**
