Abstract:Within the past two decades much has been written on those plays of Shakespeare featuring Muslims and Jews and what these plays may have said about early modern England's ongoing religious concerns and economic expansion in the Mediterranean. This essay examines issues of religious conversion and how these concerns may have entered into Othello . In particular it posits that the character Iago, whose motivation has been an ongoing mystery among scholars, may have been a representation of a Marrano Jew entering into a partnership with the Muslim convert, Othello. Jewish / Muslim partnership plays were common prior to the first staging of Othello . Stage iconography borrowed from the morality tradition and previous plays were infused in Iago's character to represent stereotyped Jewish traits.
