The Alternative Trinity - new book

ID: 431322

What if the creator of the world were evil? What if Christ, the Son, were the antagonist not the ally of the Father? Nuttall tracks this subversive theology from the Gnostics of the second century, through its flickering reappearance in Marlowe and Milton, to its full development in Blake. - ;The Trinity of orthodox Christianity is harmonious. The Trinity for Blake is, conspicuously, not a happy family: the Father and the Son do not get on. It might be thought that so cumbersome a notion is inconceivable before the rise of Romanticism but the Ophite Gnostics of the second century AD appear to have thought that God the Father was a jealous tyrant because he forbade Adam and Eve to eat from the Tree of Knowledge and that the serpent, who led the way to the Tree of. Knowledge, was really Christ. This book explores the possibility of an underground 'perennial heresy', linking the Ophites to Blake. The 'alternative Trinity' is intermittently visible in Marlowe's Doctor Faustus and even in Milton's Paradise Lost. Blake's notorious detection of a pro-Satan anti-poem, latent. in this 'theologically patriarchal' epic is less capricious, better grounded historically and philosophically, than is commonly realised. - ;This reprint of the late and much missed Anthony Nuttall's The Alternative Trinity reminds us of his astounding erudition as well as his brilliantly funny wit. These ingredients which have become the hallmark of Nuttall's work make this book both challenging and entertaining to read. - Elizabeth Muller, Revue --eacute--;lectronique d--eacute--;tudes sur le monde anglophone History History eBook, Oxford University Press, UK
