This project takes the human body and the bodily senses as joints that articulate new kinds of connections between church and theatre


"Waldron's book gives us a refreshing and new account of the relations between Protestantism and Renaissance theater. She makes human liveliness central to both Protestant accounts of the reformation of the body and to the plays of Kyd, Marlowe, and especially Shakespeare. Taking issue with recent accounts of disenchantment and secularization she shows how Protestantism intensified rather than rejected some of the Christological and incarnational aesthetic theologies of Catholicism. This book deserves a very broad readership and will constitute an important contribution to current interests in religion and theater." - Sarah Beckwith, Professor of English, Theater, and Religion, Duke University, USA

"In this timely and nuanced study, Waldron argues that the Protestant body transposes the incarnational aesthetics of medieval Christianity into new forms of connection and relationship that reinvest the world with divine presence and regenerative potential. She demonstrates how the body and the senses join the reformed church to the public theater, both of which rely on lively images to transmit truths and create community. Eschewing easy narratives of supercession and progress, Waldron discloses the tremulous assemblages of thought, feeling, and practice at the heart of English Renaissance literature, in order to deliver an integrated vision of bodily experience in Reformation art, religion,and life." - Julia Reinhard Lupton, Professor of English, University of California, Irvine, USA and author of Thinking with Shakespeare: Essays on Politics and Life

'Waldron has written a powerful, perceptive study of the ways in which Protestant discussions of the body complicate our sense of what was either divine or fallen about the flesh in early modern English culture. Those who read Waldron's book will be forced to think carefully about what early modern theater, filled as it was with lively bodies, would have meant to those who praised or attacked it. This is an important book.' - Michael Witmore, Director of the Folger Shakespeare Library, USA and author of Landscapes of the Passing Strange: Reflections from Shakespeare, with Rosamond Purcell
