In Long's view, the Western (white) "victors" of colonial history emerged from the mix primarily "programmed" to seek divinity in the modality of fascination and allurement (God as Love), while the underside of that 500-year-long enterprise has been forcibly initiated into an experience of Ultimacy as a recurrent epiphany of "Terrifying Inscrutability" (ritualized in various "religions of the oppressed"), a modality of the Divine as Tremendum (God as Dread) that (seemingly) watches the rapine and plunder with impervious equanimity (since there is no immediately "saving" intervention).

Set in twelfth-century England during the reigns of Henry II and Richard I, Harley's 'Old English' tale takes as its point of departure the ease with which the over-mighty 'baron' De Courcy (passing as the Earl of Manston) uses his influence over King Henry to usurp the lands of the Earl of Raby, but it goes on to depict the eventual defeat of De Courcy and in doing so presents numerous instances of what Robertson referred to as 'the valour and generosity of private persons', as gallantry emerges out of, and points a way beyond, a state of 'war, rapine, and anarchy'.
