Cf. *Of Reformation in England* Book One: "Who is ignorant of the foul
errors, the ridiculous wresting of Scripture, the heresies, the vanities
thick sown through the volumes of Justin Martyr, Clemens, ORIGEN,
Tertullian, and others of eldest time?" Milton's rejection of a
redeemable Satan was not a rejection of Origen's authority, which for
Milton is nonexistent.
