Try Frances Yates {inter alia} --

.. but if you want really off-the-wall, try John Vyvan's _Shakespeare
and the Rose of Love_.

Theatre

In Martin Lings book, THE SACRED ART OF SHAKESPEARE" Lings comments on
this aspect society and interest of Elizabethan audiences, and also
about his opinion on Shakespeare's connection or possible connection to
a group or society of persons whose interest in the Mysteries or deeper
levels of Spiritual interest.

I hope this proves helpful.  If you cannot find the book, please let me
know and I can help.
