About the Author: Thomas Browne

After graduating M.A. from Broadgates Hall, Oxford (1629), he studied medicine privately and worked as an assistant to an Oxford doctor. He then attended the Universities of Montpellier and Padua, and in 1633 he was graduated M.D. at Leiden. Browne's medical education in Europe also earned him incorporation as M.D. from Oxford, and in 1637 he moved to Norwich, where he lived and practiced medicine until his death in 1682. While Browne seems to have had a keen intellect and was interested in many subjects, his life was outwardly uneventful, although during the Civil War he declared his support for King Charles I and received a knighthood from King Charles II in 1671.

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."
