The RELIGIO MEDICI is the apologia of a learned physician who was proud to be a Christian and a member of the Church of England as established by Elizabeth I. He recognized that under Henry VIII the Church in England had been the catholic Church in schism, whereas the Elizabethan Establishment was regarded as heretical by Rome. Yet hew rote courteously about the Pope. Unlike many seventeenth-century Protestants he never described St Peter's successor as 'Balschazar', 'the Man of Sin,' or 'the Whore of Babylon.' He foresaw endless divisions in the Churches separated from Rome and to-day there are atleast 140 separate Christian churches. He found no contradiction between religion and science. Religion reveals man's relation to God. Science is our partial knowledge of the Laws of Nature whereby the Divine purpose is carried out in creation. Being a modest man Sir Thomas Browne never thought his writings would survive his own time. As it is they have survived the centuries."

Book Description:

As a self-portrait of a mind and soul and a prominent landmark in the history of ideas, Religio Medici proved a document of inexhaustible interest and persisting value; and ever since its first publication in 1642 it has exerted a powerful influence on its readers.

About the Author:

Sir Thomas Browne (19 October 1605 – 19 October 1682) was an English polymath and author of varied works which reveal his wide learning in diverse fields including science and medicine, religion and the esoteric. Browne's writings display a deep curiosity towards the natural world, influenced by the scientific revolution of Baconian enquiry, while his Christian faith exuded tolerance and goodwill towards humanity in an often intolerant era.
