… Afer short silence then
And summons read, the great consult began.
                               (PL I: end)

“Read”. An infernal alphabet was believed to exist both by the people in the
Middle Ages and afterwards, until the times of Milton and even later.
Just, in PL the devilish documents are not soul-selling contracts nor
conjurings, but “summons”: that means laws, society, civilization.
