This detailed and innovative study draws on a deep knowledge of the Bible, and of the various currents in the history of Biblical exegesis and Christian typology, to present a timely re-evaluation of the influence on Shelley of the language and traditions of Christianity. It draws on the useby the poet Shelley, conventionally regarded as atheist, of ideas and imagery from the Scriptures in expressing his world view. A detailed appendix sets out a large number of definite or possible Biblical allusions in Shelley's poetry.

`While much has previously been written about Shelley's religious interests and uses of biblical material, this book provides a uniquely condensed and detailed treatment of the topic, and its appendix offers a very helpful guide to biblical references in Shelley's poetry.'Journal of the American Academy of Religion
