Examining the unorthodox religious vision of Robertson Davies, this study traces the evolution of Davies' religious views and their influence on his novels. Exploring his provocative and sometimes conflicting notions of a supreme being, the book places Davies' frequent calls for self-exploration and self-discovery within a theological framework in an attempt to answer questions such as, "Why does the gnostic Sophia appear so suddenly and gloriously in" The Rebel Angels"?" and "Why is the portrait of the morphine-addicted pedophile in "World of Wonders" so convincing and chilling?" Also included is a useful appendix that identifies the biblical quotations and allusions present in his novels.
