Review:

"This confident and seductive collection of essays is alive with a sense of the transformative power of performance. By inviting us to think about the Bible as stage property, philosophical concept, and as linguistic intervention, it establishes a bold new scholarly landscape for understanding early modern material, spiritual, and theatrical cultures." Julie Sanders, University of Nottingham, UK

"At a time when it is fashionable to write and read religion out of, or at least minimize its impact on, the culture of earlier epochs, this study stands as a useful corrective, reminding us of the Bible's elevated position in early modern literature and drama,

and its capacity to navigate between the two." Philip Major, Modern Language Review
