Synopsis

Reassessing the relationship between religion and drama in early modern England, this collection explores the commercial theater's reframing of religious culture. Essays foreground the material conditions of performance, the resonances between theatrical and religious rituals, and the multiple valences of religious allusions on the stage. Discussions of both Shakespearean and non-Shakespearean drama reveal the theater's broad interpretation of Christian practice, as well as its engagement with Islam, Judaism and paganism.
