How do I write a literary analysis of Christian symbolism in Macbeth?

ClassBrain Response:

A literary analysis may discuss how the various parts of a story relate to each other, and also how concepts and forms in literary works relate to larger aesthetic, political, social, economic, or religious contexts. In this case, you're going to review how Christian symbolism is prevalent in Shakespeare's Macbeth. Make sure that when you are writing your paper you make a specific, arguable point (thesis) and support it with evidence from the text. To do this you should have already read Macbeth and highlighted useful passages and quotes that deal with Christianity.

Aside from the text, here are some secondary sources that will help you to identify where Christian symbolism occurs in Macbeth . . .
