Theology, Paradise Lost, Milton
A number of attempts have been made to fit the Miltonic ideals into the patter of a particular religious or philosophical group. He has been called Calvinist, Arminian, Unitarian, and Spiritualist. The treatment of vital religious beliefs in "Paradise Lose" however leaves little doubt as to Milton's contempt for any and all orthodox theology.
