Hamilton (the musical) and Biblical Literacy

Here’s Every Biblical Reference in ‘Hamilton’:  The libretto is highly literate, loaded with references to the Founding documents, the age of Enlightenment, Shakespeare, contemporary rap—and of course, the Bible. From King George to Aaron Burr, the hit musical’s biblical literacy makes its story and characters even richer.  Students can contrast this work with the more typical pop content they usually consume and consider the differences.
