  • Heaven Of God's Son
    2,128 words
    Good vs. Evil Milton's Paradise Lost John Milton divided the characters in his epic poem Paradise Lost into two sides, one side under God representing good, and the other side under Satan representing evil and sin. Milton first introduced the reader to the character Satan, the representative of all evil, and his allegiance of fallen angels that aided in his revolt against God (Milton 35). Only later did Milton introduce the reader to all powerful God, leader and creator of all mankind (John). Th...
  • Angel Of The Lord And Satan
    1,631 words
    Mankind lives in a physical, tangible, material world, which is influenced by the invisible, spiritual world around us. The present day spiritual world is just as existent as it was nearly two thousand years ago when Lord Jesus walked the earth. The Old and New Testaments reveal to us from time to time, glimpses of this spiritual world. These Testaments provide us with the most factual information regarding Satan. Unfortunately, many have been misinformed and do not thoroughly comprehend Satan's...
  • Angels Of Lower Rank To God

    ANGELIC OVERVIEW: "Angels are spirits", proclaimed St. Augustine! St. Thomas Aquinas believed that angels were pure spirit, having no matter or mass, and taking up no space; but Thomas believed angels could assume bodies at will.

  • Satan As The Hero Of Paradise Lost
    1,689 words
    Satan: The True Hero of Paradise Lost The identity of the true protagonist in Paradise Lost is a mystery. One would gather that Milton, a Puritan, would have no problem casting God as the hero, and Satan as the antagonist. However, looking back in history, Milton saw that most epic heroes had conflicts that prevented them from accomplishing their goals. God and his Son have no conflict, and Adam's story does not really begin until the Fall of Man. Therefore, Milton was forced to select Satan as ...

His first reference to the Accusing Angel appears early on, however references throughout the story do not exist. Unlike the Accusing Angel, the Serpent is mentioned throughout the book. Disturbing imagery and ideas from...
  • Angel Addresses Daniel
    1,894 words
    The final three chapters of Daniel consist of one long narrative. They record the final vision given to this prophet of God. Chapter 10 introduces the vision, giving an amazing 'behind the scenes' look at the spiritual conflict of which Daniel was a part. The Bible plainly reveals that life in our universe exists on two planes: the material and the spiritual. The unseen world is just as real as that which we see. Moreover, many of the struggles that take place in this world are influenced by con...

  • Origin Of Satan Elaine
    734 words
    The Origin of Satan Elaine begins she assumed that Jewish and Christian perceptions of invisible beings had to do mainly with the moralization of society (Pagals XVI), which brings us to the ability to interpret events such as illness or natural disasters as an act of God's will. Throughout her research Elaine also found something that she hadn t expected in the Christian religion. Some Christians attributed events such as natural disasters not as God's will but as Satan's doing. Although Satan,...
  • Satan And His Experiences In Paradise Lost
    819 words
    Satan as Human Fools as Godly Milton Paradise Lost is one of the most unique works from the Renaissance period. Bringing a fresh perspective to the Satan / God conflict that until the time of its authorship, had not been represented, that is, the perspective of Satan himself. Satan is presented as a bit of a fool, reacting more as a human being, which provides a comic element of identity in the rebellion against "Heaven". However, it suggests the operation of the weak or suggestive side of human...

    In Milton's epic poem "Paradise Lost" Satan or evil is actually given heroic qualities. What is evil anyway? Who is the judge?

Can evil really be viewed as heroic under any circumstances? The answers to these perplexing questions don't come so easy. The actions and beliefs of the men who orchestrated the a...
  • Satan And The Fall Of Man
    926 words
    The words I chose to concentrate the most on in Milton's Paradise Lost is omnipotence and omniscient. We come across these words several times in the course of the story and it is always referring to God which is understanding since he is all-powerful, all-knowing. We first hear it from the narrator of the story in book one, ? Who durst defy the omnipotent to arms (line 49).? when he is referring to the fall of Satan. We hear the word again from Beelzebub, ? Leader of those armies bright, which ...
