John Velz promptly adds that an 'additional reference to sowing cockles
[appears] in *Cor.* 3.1.70'.

Yes, as Keen points out in his book. The only reason I didn't mention it
was that we were dealing with Shakespeare's early plays (which don't
include Coriolanus).

Yahoo! is having a connection problem tonight. I hope this message
reaches Hardy before I lose it again.

Best wishes,
Takashi Kozuka

Comment:        RE: SHK 13.0856 Re: Shakespeare and Catholicism

David Lindley's point about the introduction of confessionals in the
sixteenth century is worth investigating further, perhaps in "Stripping
the Altars" or some similar work.  As I wrote about the very visible
confession-box in Branagh's "Hamlet," I realized that I don't know the
history of the confessional, or even of the form that sacramental
confession took at this period.

To be continued,
John Mahon
