Pearce postulates that the playwright William Shakespeare (1564-1616) was from an obscurantist Catholic line (a closet recusant) based on the idea that John Shakespeare's will & testament followed a Catholic model; that John and son William bequeathed money to Catholics; that Shakespeare's daughters had names taken from the Apocrypha; that Shakespeare bought property that benefitted Catholics and other grounds.
If so, then how did William Shakespeare survive through an era of rabid persecution of "Papists"?
Pearce provides some clues, in this curious investigative work.

This is a well written book but which misses the point since it was Francis Bacon who was Shakespeare and he was a Freemason brought up by a Protestant family.
