dc.description.abstractThis paper does not emphasize the aspects of Milton's belief that were contrary to Puritanism, but those aspects as they were of him, of his reasoning and of his understanding. They conformed in some instances to orthodox doctrine only coincidently, and deviated in others at random, with no intentional separation. It is as though Milton were a person who had never known of any religion, and had been handed a Bible and asked to comment upon it. His doctrines of theology are original within himself, and because of the ultimately identical scriptural source, at times resemble Protestantism, at others orthodox Catholicism, and at still others the wide variety of independent heretic groups. Milton was, as originally stated, the English humanist and believer in God, a man of reason and a man of independence.en_US
