Description Equivocation in the moral philosophy of the XVI-XVIIth century debate means the juristic language the right for an ambivalent communication in the times of persecution. Eglish Jesuits (Southwell, Garnet, Persons) advocated equivocation of the persecuted Catholics, the seal of the confessional, and in the case of unlawful torture and trial by jury. The Elizabethan establishment condemned equivocation as a lie and trickery. Shakespeare echoed the hot topic of equivocation in Hamlet, Macbeth, All's Well that Ends Well, and in Henry V. Where (probably) stood Shakespeare, as for this controversy?
