This paper explores Shakespeare's "Romeo and Juliet" with the purpose of illustrating how Shakespeare's plays always reflect the values, attitudes and beliefs of the times in which they were written; Elizabethan and early Jacobean England.

From the Paper:

"Religion in "Romeo and Juliet:" William Shakespeare's writing often focuses on a specific message that he intends to get across to his audience. There has been much speculation as to the specific religious background of Shakespeare. Little is known about Shakespeare's personal life until he moved to London and became a popular playwright. Therefore critics have studied Shakespeare's plays in order to ascertain Shakespeare's religious affiliations. Shakespeare appears to espouse a Roman Catholic doctrine based on the characters in Romeo and Juliet."
