The Denouement is Christian theology/mythology incorporated into a fantasy epic. It’s allegory, angels and demons as Man, Satan as Alexander and Hannibal and Caesar, Michael the Avenger! as Jesus. It’s civilization defending itself against the incursions of barbarian darklanders. It’s the rise of false gods and of godlessness and of crude shaman magic striving for the level of God.
