Debate about the authorship of the manuscript known to us as De Doctrina Christiana has bedevilled Milton studies over recent years. In this book four leading scholars give an account of the research project that demonstrated its Miltonic provenance beyond reasonable doubt. But the authors do much more besides, locating Milton's systematic theology in its broader European context, picking open the stages and processes of its composition, and analysing its Latinity.
This book offers a highly scrupulous reconsideration of the history, composition, style, and doctrines of Milton's major theological treatise. It is a significant contribution to Milton studies and to our understanding of seventeenth-century theology. * David Loewenstein, University of Wisconsin-Madison * This book is the result of the most thorough investigations of the De Doctrina manuscript even undertaken in Milton studies * Sarka Kuhnova, Notes and Queries *
