The other theme is moral and religious one, a criticism to a Church which became an instrument of spiritual oppression because of its dualism about soul and body, its moral code against instincts, its idea of a mysterious and cruel God typical of Old Testament instead of a merciful God typical of the New Testament.

TURNER E BLAKE
