The Religious Stoic / A Moral Essay, Preferring Solitude to Public Employment
MACKENZIE, Sir George
The first title in this volume was originally published as Religio Stoici in 1663, while the second was originally published in 1665. In private Sir George Mackenzie was a learned gentleman with literary tendencies, best remembered as the author of essays such as these. His best-known work is probably the second item in this volume. Historically, however, he is remembered for his relentless persecution of the Scottish Covenanters, which gained him the nickname "Bloody Mackenzie."
