Reformations of the Body revisits established accounts of Protestantism and embodiment in order to reveal new ties between theology and theatricality in the time of Shakespeare. As a cultural form that combined verbal, visual, and bodily modes of representation, theater presented a particularly complex set of problems, as did the living body. This study juxtaposes reformation approaches to the body with case studies of influential plays of this period, particularly revenge tragedies such as Kyd's Spanish Tragedy and Shakespeare's Othello. Jennifer Waldron illuminates the ways in which these plays drew on forceful religious investments in their central medium - the body of the actor - to transform theatrical experience in post-Reformation England.
