All the WS-was-an-RC stuff seems to me to be tedious and tendentious rubbish. He had far more interesting stuff in mind than the throwback to late antiquity that was the papacy.

I tend to agree, DM, not least because I cannot think that the man who wrote 'King Lear' was even a theist.

By God it's a shaker, isn't it? We "did" Lear in our last year at school. It was wise of them to hold it back until we were old enough to make something of it.

I didn't get to it until middle-age and even then I didn't quite appreciate the apocalyptic nature of it. Now I'm old, and like Lear himself, my eyes have been opened.
