BeschreibungThis important collection of essays focuses on the place of Roman Catholicism in early modern England, bringing new perspectives to bear on the question of whether Shakespeare himself was Catholic. Among the many topics discussed are the nature of Elizabethan Catholicism, Jesuit drama in the period, individual plays in the light of these questions, and the possible influence of religious conflicts on the publication of the Shakespeare First Folio.
