This paper examines piety in Shakespeare's "Macbeth." The paper identifies corresponding Christian imagery linking the murder of Duncan to the murder of Jesus Christ. The paper explores the concepts of good and evil, sin and guilt.

From the Paper:

"One of the strongest themes in "Macbeth" is that of piety or more precisely Christianity. The world-view and speech of the characters is infused with God and the devil and they clearly believe in and understand the opposing spiritual forces of the supernatural. The extensive Christian imagery in Macbeth in fact seems to represent the foundation that the entire story is built upon the allegorical connection between the murder of King Duncan and the murder of Jesus Christ."
