Seeming Knowledge: Shakespeare and Skeptical Faith

Voorkant
Baylor University Press, 2007 - 348 pagina's

Seeming Knowledge revisits the question of Shakespeare and religion by focusing on the conjunction of faith and skepticism in his writing. Cox argues that the relationship between faith and skepticism is not an invented conjunction. The recognition of the history of faith and skepticism in the sixteenth century illuminates a tradition that Shakespeare inherited and represented more subtly and effectively than any other writer of his generation.

--David Jasper, Professor of Literature and Theology, University of Glasgow "Sixteenth Century Journal, XL/3"
