John Milton's Bible: Biblical Resonance in Paradise Lost

by Stallard, Matthew S.

Abstract (Summary)
This dissertation mainly consists of a modernized edition of John Milton's Paradise Lost that is abundantly annotated with Biblical references. The editorial preface outlines the methods used for arriving at these annotations, the rationale for editorial decisions, and a discussion of the Biblical translations consulted. Lastly, this work includes a critical essay that engages how Milton's choices between various translations of the Bible and his depiction of the Holy Spirit in Paradise Lost reveal his disposition toward the Trinity doctrine.
