Fascinating!  As for Milton's take on human perfectability (or even "begoddedness" -- marvellous word!), what about Raphael's comment to Adam in Book 5 (494-95) that "time may come when men/ With Angels may participate"?  The idea that we might some day turn "all to Spirit" seems to go well beyond anything Calvin would countenance.
