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
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.
