Milton and St. Basil: The Genesis of Sin and Death.

Steadman, John M. "Milton and St. Basil: The Genesis of Sin and Death." Modern Language Notes 73.2 (1958), pp. 83-84.

Review

Whereas Tatlock (1906) found an analogue for Milton's allegorical treatment of Sin and Death in Gower, Steadman argues that Milton likely did not read Gower and that their common source was probably St. Basil's "Sixth Homily on the Hexaemeron." [CvD]
