It was written and first performed in 1664 at the fetes held at Versailles and was almost immediately censored by King Louis XIV. The story of an attempt, by an irreclaimable hypocrite, to destroy the domestic happiness of a citizen who, charmed by his seeming piety, has received him as a prominent guest.
