  • The Comparison Of Job And The Decameron By Giovanni Boccaccio

    In the Holy Bible, there is verse that reads “Love the Lord your God and keep his requirements, his decrees, his laws, and his commands always” (The Holy Bible, Deu. 11.1). The meaning of this is that if God’s children obey him and remain steadfast in their faith, God will bless them in ways that they could never have imagined. In the Book of Job, this promise is exemplified when Job, who is perfect in all ways, is cursed twice by Satan (with God’s permission), only to later be rewarded for his faith. A wise lesson on the merits of obedience, Giovanni Boccaccio wrote on a similar theme in “Story 10, Day 10” in The Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio. In the short story, Gualtieri, a wifeless, childless marquis, takes a beautiful, poor, village girl, Griselda, as his wife and, in order to test her devotion to him, forces her to endure years of emotional and verbal abuse from him. Instead of breaking the vow of obedience she made to him, Griselda continuously displays impossible patience with him, and as a result, their story ends happily.

One example of a similarity between Job and Griselda is that they are both put through hell at the will of someone who loves them. Job is a man that is perfect in his faith and in his life, and…
