With a “hot needle and a burning thread” I’m posting the calendar of Shakespeare films at the Seminary (that’s Princeton Theological Seminary. I discovered them by chance, and they start Tuesday, February 1, at 7 p.m. in Stuart Hall Room 6. Surely these films are ideal for introducing students to the Bard. Best, they are free.
From the press release: “Christian theology is, or should be, biblically based,” says Black, “and theology is considered reflection on what God is doing in the world. Shakespeare’s genius lay in crystallizing the stuff of our world with tension, insight, and poetry. The wedding of religion and politics, the freedom and limits of human will, the sense in suffering: to ponder his plays from a biblical platform is exhilarating.” For more information, contact Michael T.
