The Jew of Malta

Abigail is the only character who displays genuine love, loyalty, and selflessness in the play. Above all, she remains unmotivated by money and appears to have some kind of moral code (although she is willing to dissemble if it will serve her father's ends).

Marlowe uses Abigail's conversion to make a heavily ironic point about the corruption of the Catholic clergy.
