Chapter 18:

Souls in Torment

(The Summary of “Noli Me Tangere”)

In the convent, some women converse about purgatory and the number of plenary indulgences that they have acquired.  Sisa arrives, bringing with her vegetables to appease the Curate into forgiving her son Crispin.  A sacristan tells her that Crispin is not in the church, and that the Guardia Civil are now searching for her two sons, after the Curate reported them to the authorities for stealing.
