The present study analyzes the crises of conscience that each of Vicente Lenero's protagonists must face. Each protagonist in the novels and plays studied must come to grips with a personal problem that involves an interpretation of the Catholic faith. A single novel or play is dealt with in each chapter. In the analysis of the works we examine the nature of the moral dilemmas encounted. We hope to show that each work bears a message important to Lenero. It seems that his purpose in writing these novels and plays is to present a defense of Christian, or more specifically, Catholic principles, and to show that his characters' struggle to find God is a problem common to all men in the world today.
