I am traveling in the Mideast and do not have my library with me. I am 
also trying to type on a French keyboard. I have long believed Shakespeare 
to be a hidden Catholic based on his theological representations, and 
published works (which I am unable to cite at this point) have supported 
this-though there are many who refuse to agree:  If this string is still 
going when I get back to Pennsylvania I will try to give some 
bibliography.

It's equally if not more likely that this Gulielmus came from Stratford, 
London, than Stratford upon Avon (no hyphens in Shakespeare's day).

According to the cited article, someone signed the book in Latin 
"Gulielmus Clerkue Stratfordiensis".  Even assuming the provenance and 
authenticity of the book, it is a wild stretch to assume that William, 
Clerk (or Secretary) of Stratford was the signer.  Such an entry can be 
probative only to one who needs no convincing.

If the book was in autograph, it might be interesting to compare the 
signature with WS's known signatures.

>I ran across an article in the online National Catholic Register today 
that seemed

http://www.ncregister.com/articulo4.php?artkod=NDQ3
>A Father Andreas Kramarz, LC, is the author and he refers to a hitherto 
unknown
>entry in the Pilgrims book of the English College in Rome which 
supposedly refers to
>Shakespeare studying in Rome in 1585 during the lost years...

Kramarz writes, "In October 1613, the presumed pseudonym Ricardus 
Stratfordus appears on the college's guestbook - 'Richard' was the name of 
Shakespeare's paternal grandfather and also of the last of his brothers, 
buried in Stratford in February 1613.'

Ha ha.

Cheers,
