Religion in Exile

worcester-cathedral-In Michael Wood’s documentary, he often speaks of how Shakespeare’s father, although outlawed, held strong to his religion. This hidden religion is most truly shown when Shakespeare, is married by a closet catholic who will do catholic ceremonies behind closed doors. In Twelfth Night, Sebastian and Olivia run off together and are married in secrecy. This is a direct connection between Shakespeare’s life, and the stories he writes because he takes aspects of his life and puts them into the stories he writes.
