Comment:        RE: SHK 12.0498 Ephesians

There's an old article for which I now have only the annotation, but I
believe it covers the ground you ask about before proceeding to its main
argument, that there is a level of intertextuality with Paul's Epistle
to the Ephesians in the Henry IV plays. The piece is J. A. Bryant, Jr.,
"Prince Hal and the Ephesians," The Sewanee Review 62, 2 (Spring 1959):
204-19.  Another illuminating classic that suggests that the Greeks were
generally considered degenerate in Elizabethan times is T. J. B.
Spencer, "'Greeks" and 'Merrygreeks': A Background to Timon of Athens
and Troilus and Cressida in Richard Hosley, ed. Essays on Shakespeare
and Elizabethan Drama in Honor of Hardin Craig (1962).
