The Shakespeare and Christianity Collection provides modern perspectives on where the Bible meets the Bard. In these two volumes, literary critics analyze Christendom’s imprint on the work of Shakespeare as his plays emerge alongside the King James Bible. John D. Cox paints a broad picture of how emerging seventeenth-century skepticism finds itself on stage in the Shakespearean canon, while Beatrice Batson’s volume gives several close readings of specific fingerprints the Christian tradition left in three great tragedies.
