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.
