Comment:        Re: SHK 15.1048 Touchstone and the Gods

I don't think we can use the "avoiding censorship for blasphemy" answer
to explain the gods in AYLI. After all, Hymen shows up in act five.
Unless Hecate counts in Macbeth, I can't think offhand of any other gods
showing up in Shakespeare's plays.
