The Catholic Shakespeare?

The Catholic Shakespeare? Portsmouth Review Portsmouth Institute

Was Shakespeare Catholic? By observing Shakespeare's history and his plays evidence suggests that he was sympathetic to the Catholics' plight. He had personal connections to people who were persecuted for their faith and throughout his plays there is evidence of a Catholic worldview. The Catholic Shakespeare? gives an inside look at the 2011 Portsmouth Institute conference, offering different takes from speakers to Shakespearean plays. Each speaker offers compelling evidence and some suggestions about the basis and meaning behind his plays as they relate to a Catholic view. Dr. Gerard Kilroy, University College, London, assembles linguistic and thematic cues to suggest Romeo and Juliet as an allegory for believers and the Catholic Church. Dennis Taylor, Boston College, takes a more historical approach in his review of Shakespeare's play The Tempest, tracing Catholic links to early efforts to explore the Americas. And, finally, Fr. David Beauregard, St. Clement seminary, takes a religious and philosophical look at relationships, charity, and the development of virtue in The Tempest. The Catholic Shakespeare is a must-read for anyone interested in the mystery behind Shakespeare's religion.
