From the Paper:

"When Shakespeare wrote 'The Tragedy of Hamlet, the Prince of Denmark' most people were familiar with the bible verse 'Vengeance is mine saith the Lord' as well as other biblical injunctions to leave revenge to God. (Tiffany) Of course this did not keep people from trying to get vengeance for things that had been done to them. As Terry points out, the concept of honor and what was considered the right thing to do was undergoing a change during the Renaissance. (Terry) "
