This work discusses important texts that scrutinize the cult of monarchy in light of the injunction against idolatry. When Milton deplored the civil kind of idolatry, he echoed a significant theme in earlier texts -- Erasmus's political writings, Spenser, and Shakespeare's political plays. Milton redefines conquest and fatherhood in response to contemporary monarchists' patriarchalism and conquest-theory.
