Shakespeare as a Christian Writer

Leland Ryken has written an excellent article which is a snapshot of
what he teaches about Shakespeare in his literary courses. You'll be
pleasantly surprised. Here's a quote:

“More than conventional: scholars who are attuned to the Christian
element in Shakespeare's plays correctly observe that there is
sometimes a gratuitous element in Shakespeare's Christian allusions,
meaning that Shakespeare incorporates Christian references beyond what
seem to be strictly required by the context.”

I highly recommed reading the whole thing.
