    others. This does not fit with the religion represented in the play. Perdita, the character in the Christ role, participates in the festivities in Bohemia, showing that this religious character was for festivity. Therefore, there is a distance between Shakespeare’s Bible tale and Roman Catholic Bible’s version. There is an exception to this rule, though. The anti-Catholic sentiment only applies to rigid Catholics, and it does not apply to less rigid Catholics. This is because the less rigid Catholics participated in the festivities. Jensen states, “But if we abandon a rigid definition of ‘Catholics’… it becomes possible to see that crypto-Catholics and the religiously conservative swelled the numbers of the Jacobean pro-festivity contingent” (Jensen 288). Therefore, some Catholics did participate in festivity, much like they do today. Therefore, it would be wrong to include all Catholics in this definition, as it does not include all Catholics. However, for the sake of the argument, “Catholics” will refer to the rule and not the exception henceforth. It is important to understand that the Catholics were anti-festivity and anti-idolatry, as the plays messages show that this points the play’s Biblical symbolism to Reformation ideals. This is important because it allows the readers to obtain a handle on the ideals of the time.
