Wheaton College's Shakespeare Collection focuses upon Shakespeare and the Christian Tradition or on the Christian dimension of Shakespeare’s works. Numerous scholars since the eighteenth century have done outstanding writing on the ways in which the Bible intersects the language of Shakespeare’s works. Some thinkers have worked on the biblical influences present in his writings; there are those who have studied large theological and doctrinal concepts embodied in his writings, while others have focused on the Christian implications of his writings as well as the specific moral, spiritual, ethical, and aesthetic topics.
The 2003 Shakespeare Institute, titled Catholic/Protestant Presence in a trio of Shakespeare’s Tragedies: Julius Caesar, Hamlet and Macbeth, is especially for college teachers and reinforces the purpose of the special collection--the Christian dimension of Shakespeare’s writings and teaching Shakespeare from a Christian perspective. Speakers at this year's conference include noted Shakespearean scholars Peter Milward and Maurice Hunt, among others.
Conference Fee: $60.00. Fee covers attendance at all sessions, the Thursday night reception, Friday evening dinner, and evening dramatic presentation.
