Joseph Pearce on Shakespeare

One of my favorite talks at the conference, was Joseph Pearce's "The Orthodoxy of Shakespeare". Even though I was somewhat familiar with the evidence for Shakespeare's Catholicity, he brought many new tidbits to light and inspired me to start planning a year of Shakespeare with our teen literature discussion group next year. I purchased his new book "The Quest for Shakespeare" (newly published by Ignatius Press) and had a nice chat with him after Saturday night's banquet. He was very personable and we're really looking forward to his EWTN program on Shakespeare that should be airing in early 2009!
