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
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.
