The Alternative Trinity

Gnostic Heresy in Marlowe, Milton, and Blake

A. D. Nuttall

What is the creator of the world were evil? What if Christ, the Son, were the antagonist rather than the ally of the Father? Nuttall tracks this subversive theology from the Gnostics of the second century, through its flickering reappearance in Marlowe and Milton, to its full development in Blake.
