"Romeo and Juliet" is generally believed to take place in the fourteenth or fifteenth century. Most of the literature books that I have used and taught from have given the time period as the 1300's (fourteenth century). As an English teacher, I have been teaching the play for nine years now and always give the setting as the 1300s.
