Legalize It for Golden Days



Let us legalize honor. 

In sixteenth and seventeenth century Spain, honor was written into an official code as a legal trait.  Honor was an obsession in the Spanish Golden Age for all members of society. You know, honor, like worthiness, noble deeds, reputation, principals, good stuff. 

If we turn self honor into a modern legality, we would certainly be headed in a golden direction.  Now, turning honor into a cultural obsession may be trickier than making it legal. 

Spanish Golden Age honor, for example, is so attractive that honor and fame went hand in hand.

Tomorrow, the Spanish Golden Age relationship between honor, fame and emblematic literature, Golden Age emblems are a case of, “if a picture could tell a thousand words”.
