Project Summary

Having begun my academic studies in the Theology and Religion department at Exeter, my PhD research will investigate John Milton's reading of the Bible. While Milton's work is widely recognised to be saturated with biblical references and allusions, my PhD aims to further the investigation of Milton's biblical engagement beyond its use as a literary source towards a systematic study of Milton's theology of scripture. 

Supervisory Team

My PhD research, entitled "A Systematic Study of John Milton as a Reader of the Bible", is supervised by Professor Karen Edwards and Dr Johanna Harris.
