Religio Medici The Religion of a Doctor Sir Thomas Browne Religio Medici (The Religion of a Doctor) by Sir Thomas Browne became a European best-seller which brought its author fame and respect throughout England and the continent. Browne's spiritual testament and early psychological self-portrait was finally published in 1643 after an unauthorized version was distributed and reproduced with added text the previous year. Structured upon the Christian virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity, Religio Medici while thematically upon the Christian faith is also a psychological self-portrait. Whilst discussing Church authority and religious ritualism, Browne rejects them in favour of Reason and The Bible. Browne expresses a belief in salvation "by faith alone," the existence of hell, the day of judgement, the resurrection and other tenets of Protestantism, rejecting the religious dictations of the Pope. There is no Church whose every part so squares unto my Conscience; whose Articles, Constitutions, and Customs seem so consonant unto reason, and as it were framed to my particular Devotion, as this whereof I hold my Belief, the Church of England; to whose Faith I am a sworn Subject, and therefore in a double Obligation subscribe unto her Articles, and endeavour to observe her Constitutions. Whatsoever is beyond, as points indifferent, I observe according to the rules of my private reason, or the humor and fashion of my Devotion; neither believing this, because Luther affirmed it, or disproving that, because Calvin hath disavouched it. I condemn not all things in the Council of Trent, nor approve all in the Synod of Dort. In brief, where the Scripture is silent, the Church is my Text; where that speaks, 'tis but my Comment: where there is a joynt silence of both, I borrow not the rules of my Religion from Rome or Geneva, but the dictates of my own reason.

Religio Medici, the timeless book of contemplation by Sir Thomas Browne, is presented here unaltered and complete. Written by Browne during the 1640s as a means of profiling his own psyche while composing a personal spiritual testament to the divine, Religio Medici, or Religion of a Doctor, was received with great acclaim both in England and in continental Europe at the time of its publication. The text is principally structured around three key virtues: the first part is occupied with the attributes of Faith and Hope; while the second part is concerned with Charity. Throughout, Browne maintains his own recognisable style and tone, writing with frankness, clarity and conviction in a manner befitting an avowed Christian. For its profundity and explanatory wisdom, scholars of the 17th century offered Religio Medici much praise, and Browne became famous. The book also enjoyed a revival during the 19th century, wherein the characterful idiosyncrasies of Browne were appreciated by the artists and intellectuals of that era. Today, the text remains a favourite of Christians and scholars for its accessibility and merits of tone.

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."

Sir Thomas Browne is one of the supreme stylists of the English language: a coiner of words and spinner of phrases to rival Shakespeare; the wielder of a weird and wonderful erudition; an inquiring spirit in the mold of Montaigne. Browne was an inspiration to the Romantics as well as to W.G. Sebald, and his work is quirky, sonorous, and enchanting. Here this baroque master’s two most enduring and admired works, Religio Medici and Urne-Buriall, appear in a new edition that has been annotated and introduced by the distinguished scholars Ramie Targoff and Stephen Greenblatt (author of the best-selling Will in the World and the National Book Award–winning The Swerve). In Religio Medici Browne mulls over the relation between his medical profession and his profession of the Christian faith, pondering the respective claims of science and religion, questions that are still very much alive today. The discovery of an ancient burial site in an English field prompted Browne to write Urne-Buriall, which is both an early anthropological examination of different practices of interment and a profound meditation on mortality. Its grave and exquisite music has resounded for generations.
