2007: Shakespeare and Catholicism


The 2007 Catholic Literature Series focused on William Shakespeare and his relationship to Catholicism. While Shakespeare’s place in the Western canon is settled, the controversial question of his faith is not. In this Series, we debated the notion of a Catholic ethos in his plays, exploring the historical and literary facts surrounding the issue. In the process, we hoped to inspire students and the Notre Dame community to revisit the Bard’s superb works. Watch video recordings of the lectures at the links below.
