Debate about the authorship of the manuscript known to us as iDe Doctrina Christiana/i 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 authorsdo 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.
Gordon Campbell is Professor of Renaissance Studies at University of Leicester. His work on Milton includes a revised edition of W.R. Parker's two-volume life of Milton (OUP), the entries on Milton and his circle for the new Oxford iDictionary of National Biography/i, editions of Milton's iComplete Poems/i and iComplete English Poems/...
