THIS slight volume is addressed not to Shakespearean special ists, but rather to the general public. My chief purpose has been to view Shakespeare's manipulation of his clergy. The last three chapters deal with ancillary problems. Two articles in this collection have already been published - "Shakespeare's Cardinals and Bishops" in The Crozer Quarterry, April, 1950; "Shakespeare's Interest in Harsnet's Declaration" in Publications of the Modern Language Association, September, 1952. I appreciate the Editors' permission to reprint these essays in the present volume. I also thank Professors Gerald Eades Bentley and Lily Bess Campbell for encourage ment and advice during the writing of the first, fifth, and last pieces in this collection. Neither is however to be held re sponsible for any errors discovered by reviewers. All of the essays in this volume except the first were written either at The Folger Shakespeare Library in 1950 or at The Huntington Library in 1952. I thank the directors and staffs of both libraries for their many exceptional kindnesses. Miss Mary Neighbour of Oxford has placed me further in her debt by typing the completed collection.

This book examines the history of Muslim Azerbaijan under Christian Orthodox Russian imperial rule and the attempts of the Russian administrators of the Caucasus to integrate the region into the empire. Firouzeh Mostashari presents the formation of a Russian colonial administration in the Muslim Caucasus; subsequent social, political and economic development and the local response to conquest, military rule and Russification. Central to the study is the concept of a religious and cultural frontier separating Orthodox Russia and Muslim Azerbaijan. On the Religious Frontier offers a fascinating insight into how the seeds of conflict in today's Caucasus were sown during Tsarist Russia.

Combining scholarship with grace, the author shows in this study that Shakespeare's works are pervasively secular, that he was concerned with the dramatization of universally human situations within a temporal and this-worldly arena, and that he was familiar with and used theological materials as only one of many natural and available sources. Originally published in 1963. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

This important collection of essays focuses on the place of Roman Catholicism in early modern England, bringing new perspectives to bear on the question of whether Shakespeare himself was Catholic. Among the many topics discussed are the nature of Elizabethan Catholicism, Jesuit drama in the period, individual plays in the light of these questions, and the possible influence of religious conflicts on the publication of the Shakespeare First Folio.

The name of the Jesuit Robert Southwell has been linked with Shakespeare's, but vaguely and tentatively. The name of Henry Wriothesley, 3rd earl of Southampton, has perennially been linked with Shakespeare's. This book offers reasons for believing in a relationship among these 3 men, who were kinsmen as their contemporaries understood the term.
