Was Shakespere actually St. Edmund Campion?

This website proposes a theory that doesn't seem so wild once you read her arguments. I am pretty sure that Shakespeare, was Catholic but if he could've actually been one of England's greatest saints too..... Alas, we'll never know for sure this side of Eternity.

I don't think there was time, wasn't St Edmund killed very young?

I read another theory, which I suppose more realistic : William Shakespear actually was the author and his skills (vocabulary as well as knowledge of Catholic theology or geography of Italy around Verona) come from the time he spent in a Jesuit college in Verona or nearby.

Under secret names like "Shfordus" = "SH-akespear strat-FORDUS".

The years in which this Englishman turns up are years in which William is missing from English known events, at least, if not positively in a known way from England.
