Shakespeare's Religious Language: A Dictionary
Religious issues and religious discourse were vastly important in the sixteenth and seventeenth century and religious language is key to an understanding of Shakespeare's plays and poems. This dictionary discusses just over 1000 words and names in Shakespeare's works that have some religious denotation or connotation.

It also gradually reveals the persistence, the variety, and the sophistication of Shakespeare's religious usage.
