    Abstract:
    This is an etymological, Biblical and philosophical scrutiny of Milton's Satan. While Satan is a metaphor in Paradise Lost, he is very much real within Christian Studies. This essay revisits the reality of Satan and discusses Satan's essentialism or the lack thereof. The essay concludes with a quotation from a Benedictine Abbot and the author regarding Satan.
    Notes:
    This essay is part of a work in progress. It has been followed by the initial glossing of the first line of Milton's Paradise Lost. The entire Paradise Lost is being glossed by the author and will be available in the public domain. This essay is preceded by the author's introduction to evil in another journal. Even this essay should be treated as a draft.
