The Alternative Trinity

Gnostic Heresy in Marlowe, Milton, and Blake

The late A. D. Nuttall

  • Explores this subversive theology from the Gnostics of the second century, through its flickering reappearance in Marlowe and Milton, to its full development in Blake
  • Awareness of the history of Gnostic thought radically changes the status of Blake's adversarial reading of Milton's Paradise Lost
