ENG234 - Shakespeare and the Devil

Shakespeare and the Devil, is an honors course exploring the plays of William Shakespeare within a historical, cultural, and religious context. Specifically, the content of his plays is related to Elizabethan and early Jacobean perceptions of the Christian hell, Satan, and the nature of sins and punishment at the turn of the 16th Century. Special consideration is given to the way that religiosity in 16th Century England informs and influences Christian beliefs in today's world, and the extent to which Shakespeare's works reflect, critique, and anticipate mainstream religious values.
