Religio Medici

Author:Browne, Sir Thomas (1605-1682)
Description:In its day, Religio Medici was a best-seller all throughout Europe. Even to this day, it is widely circulated among novelists and writers. The book seems to be a type of personal memoir. In it, Sir Thomas Browne deeply ruminates about the world. His reflections are often theological--and possibly controversial (The book was eventually banned in the 17th century). Nevertheless, it contains beautiful phrases that express spiritual truths in new and interesting ways. The prose can be difficult to decipher at times, but the editor has provided notes where needed, explaining words and illusions. Many might enjoy getting lost in the powerful prose.
