"Drawing upon material found in Newton's vast library," the author tells of a man who "lusted after self-promotion and power" and was "driven to investigate everything that puzzled him, expended a vast amount of time and effort studying the chronology of the Bible, examining prophecy, investigating natural magic--perhaps even the black arts--and attempting to unravel the hermetic secrets, the prisca sapientia."--Publisher description.
