The Major Works: Religio Medici, Hydrotophia, The Garden of Cyprus, A Letter to a Friend, and Christian Morals (Penguin Classics)

Sir Thomas Browne


Sir Thomas Browne (1605-82) was once a author of breathtaking variety and studying, whose works display a hot and funny view of human nature. "Religio Medici" is an interesting, witty and intimate exploration of his perspectives on religion and tolerance, whereas immense decisions from "Pseudodoxia Epidemica" show Browne's breadth of information and omnivorous interest in his account of universal mistakes in a startling array of topics together with sciences, historical past, literature and philosophy. "Hydriotaphia" or 'Urn Buriall' is an exciting meditation on demise and the need for immortality. "The backyard of Cyrus" considers the mysterious order to be present in nature, and "A Letter to a chum" and the aphoristic "Christian Morals" offer profound religious assistance to readers.
