The Mystery of the Milton Manuscript: A Novel

  An Oxford student's investigation into his professor's death unveils the hidden meaning of Milton's Paradise Lost amidst a trail of
treachery and murder. Brimming with intrigue, mystery, and suspense, this book is a tale of
history, literature, forgery, and religious conspiracy that exposes the enigma
behind John Milton's epic poem. Paradise Lost is the most widely read and
celebrated poem of Western literature and the supreme epic of the English
nation and all Christendom. It was written to justify the ways of God
to man and explain the moral paradox of evil. But was it truly based on
Christian theology, as assumed, or from a different set of beliefs? Some
believe that Milton himself wrote a lost manuscript explaining the true
meaning of his poem. Was there really such a manuscript? If so, why has it
remained concealed for so many years? This novel deals with the search for
Milton's true spiritual beliefs.
