Comment:	RE: SHK 19.0067 The Pious Chanson in Hamlet II.ii

Though I think the choice to have Hamlet returning from Wittenberg would 
not be lost on an Elizabethan audience I think it's also important to 
note that Hamlet takes place when the Danes controlled England, some 
several hundred years prior to nuns and monks running amok in Germany.
