Subject:        Lutheran Hamlet
 
Although this may not be the piece that Bill G. is looking for, it may be of
some interest to him and others on the list: Raymond B. Waddington's "Lutheran
Hamlet," ELN 27 (1989): 27-42.  Incidentally, while extant copies are few,
English translations of Luther's *Methodical Preface prefixed before the
Epistle of S. Paule to the Romanes* (n.d.--BM gives 1590, though Peter Blayney
has indicated to me that it is more likely a pre-1590 publication, perhaps even
as early as 1580) and *A Commentarie of M. Doctor Martin Lvther vpon the
Epistle of S. Paule to the Galatians* (1588) may be worth perusal in this
connection.  The Folger Shakespeare Library has both of these unique copies.

Comment:        Re: SHK 6.0828 Qs: Wittenberg; Ashlands' Artistic Director
 
I'm not sure about linking Hamlet and Luther, but I believe Jan Kott wrote and
essay that discusses, in part, the coincident attendance at Wittenburg of Faust
and Hamlet.
