The Whole Works of The Right Rev. Jeremy Taylor, D.D. Lord Bishop of Down, Connor, and Dromore
TAYLOR, Jeremy; HEBER, Reginald (ed.)
Jeremy Taylor (1613 1667) was a cleric in the Church of England who achieved fame as an author during the Protectorate of Oliver Cromwell. He is sometimes known as the "Shakespeare of Divines" for his poetic style of expression and was often presented as a model of prose writing. His best known works are probably "The Rule and Excercises of Holy Living" (1650) and "The Rule and Exercises of Holy Dying" (1651) (vol. IV). The editor, Reginald Heber (1783 1826) was an English clergyman and hymn-writer. One of his hymns, "Holy, Holy, Holy," has survived into our own times as a popular and widely known hymn for Trinity Sunday.
