Stages of Religion
Combines study of the histories of English religion and the English stage through the longer Reformation period, from the town-based cycle-plays of the pre-Reformation period to Milton's neo-classical drama, including Shakespeare's Hamlet and Measure for Measure. The development of the stage and its role in social and political upheaval in this period is especially examined, along with examples of plays that treat issues of religious doctrine or controversy. Extensive use of primary and rare materials.
