Quick Overview

Course Introduction

In Shakespeare's Catholicism, Joseph Pearce presents biographical and literary evidence proving the Bard's adherence to the true Faith in a time of persecution and upheaval in Elizabethan England. Professor Pearce reveals little-known details of Shakespeare's life, including his Catholic education, openly Catholic father and daughter, his friendship with Jesuit martyr St. Robert Southwell, and his purchase of the Blackfriar's Gatehouse - a known hub for underground Catholic liturgy. Among the plays discussed in light of Shakespeare's faith, is Romeo & Juliet, Merchant of Venice, HamletMacbeth and King Lear. Hear the evidence and decide for yourself - Shakespeare was a Catholic and his plays attest to his deep and powerful faith.
