Ave Maria Associate Professor Publishes New Book on Catholicism of Shakespeare

Joseph Pearce, writer in residence and associate professor of literature at Ave Maria University, has released his latest book arguing that William Shakespeare was a Roman Catholic.  The Quest for Shakespeare: The Bard of Avon and the Church of Rome highlights the fact that Shakespeare kept his faith a secret not only to preserve his life, but also in order to keep writing.  "I became convinced that Shakespeare was indeed a Catholic ...and that this fact has radical consequences with regard to the study of his works,” said Pearce. Source:
