Subject: 	Milward at BC

Mar. 20, 2006, Monday, 4:30 PM, Fulton 230, Boston College, Lecture by 
Peter Milward, S. J., "Shakespeare the Papist."  With Responses by David 
Beauregard and Frank Brownlow. Sponsored by the journal, Religion and 
the Arts

Peter Milward, S. J., an English Jesuit, is the great twentieth century 
pioneering scholar of Shakespeare's Catholic Background. His 
Shakespeare's Religious Background (1973) was a landmark volume in the 
field, as were his two volumes of The Religious Controversies of the 
Elizabethan Age (1977) and the Jacobean Age (1978). His new book, 
Shakespeare the Papist (2005), is Milward's climactic achievement in 
Shakespeare studies, an application of the background of English 
Catholicism to Shakespeare's works, the definitive work on the subject. 
  Milward is also being honored for the special collection of his works 
now assembled at Burns Rare Book Library.
