Dureau (English and American literature, St. Etienne U., France) describes how the European movement to develop a Christian version of Jewish Kabbalah took root in England during the reign of Elizabeth I, and sprouted in passages from a number of Shakespeare's plays. Her topics include the creation of a mythic queen, the metaphysics of prophesies and free will in Richard III, As You Like It as a Kabbalist teaching on the impact of sacred study, and Antony and Cleopatra and Christian Cabbalah's Hercules.
