Inculturation and Shakespeare

In this quarter's Claremont Review of Books, Paul Cantor gives us an excellent piece on the cultural reception of Shakespeare, especially by cultural dissidents.

In line with the previous posts on Christianity and rebellion against false cultural norms, I believe this essay provides an intriguing way of framing the problem for the reception, not of Shakespeare, but of Christianity into the postmodern culture of the West.

Our monastery will be on retreat this week. As I have done when travelling, I have prepared a series of posts for each day. I ask you to pray for me and for our community, as well as for our retreat master, Abbot Leo Ryska, OSB.

God's blessings to you!
