Oh, I agree. It's very much a part of received opinion. It always pays
to identify, specifically, "received by whom," of course. And to define
"decay." Christianity tends to cycle and is now more of a worldwide
phenomena than it has ever been in the past. I think it's better to
talk about specific "Christianities" than Christianity in general,
though. Your mention of the "Protestant vision Milton offers us" is a
very good place to start.
>Jim, I don't think I am introducing a concept that is already a part of received opinion.
>And even if I were it would make no difference. I was suggesting that the end of Christianity -- at least the Protestant vision that Milton offers us, was already in decay and thus the poem.
>This is not an uncommon view in Milton studies.
>And no more deities ! s.v.pl
