Comment: Re: SHK 16.0345 Shakespeare and the Qu'ran
>Shakespeare be the author of no work we actually possess, but
>rather of works bearing the same titles and /dramatis personae/ and no
>other apparent resemblance in story or sentiment; and of those (a third
>reflection) who would have no man be author of anything at all.
>In religion, this is called the heresy of docetism.
docetism: a belief opposed as heresy in early Christianity that Christ
only seemed to have a human body and to suffer and die on the cross.
