Milton and the Manuscript of De Doctrina Christiana

Gordon Campbell, Thomas N. Corns, John K. Hale, and Fiona J. Tweedie


This book presents an account of the provenance of De Doctrina Christiana, with a history of the manuscript, a reconstruction of the way it was assembled and revised, and an assessment of its place in the interpretation of other works by John Milton. It resolves issues relating to its place in Milton's canon, thus concluding a controversy that has recently been central to Milton studies.

Keywords: John Milton, authorship, sytematic theology, Protestantism
