Subject: Who Killed Marlowe?
Last Sunday's Telegraphy (yes, I just read last Sunday's paper this
morning...) had a review of the "detective" biography of Marlowe *Who
Killed Kit Marlowe?: A Contract to Murder in Elizabethan England* by M.
J. Trow and his son Taliesen. According to the book, four Privy
Council(l)ors had Marlowe silenced because he was about to disclose
their atheism. Unfortunately, as Christopher Haigh comments elsewhere,
"the supporting evidence is thin". I looked for the online version of
the review, but I couldn't find it. Those would like to read the review
can find it in the Sunday Telegraph (15 July 2001), Review, p. 15.
