9th March – The Metaphysical World of Isaac Newton: Alchemy, Prophecy, and the Search for Lost Knowledge

This is a book I’m reading at the moment and it is fascinating because I had no idea that this famous scientist spent so much time becoming an expert on the biblical texts.

Isaac Newton was a heretic, he was a follower of the Arianism heresy which holds that the Son of God was created by the Father and was therefore neither coeternal with the Father, nor consubstantial. Newton disliked the Archbishop of Alexandria, Athanasius, because it was his writings and preaching which eventually made Trinitarianism the accepted orthodoxy of the Roman Catholic Church. Newton read dozens of versions of the testaments and many old manuscripts in order to make accusations against Athanasius.

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
