As well as being two of the most famous prose works of English literature, Jeremy Taylor's Holy Living and Holy Dying are among the greatest examples of Anglican spirituality. This is the first critical and fully annotated edition since the Oxford Movement began, over 150 years ago. The textsare based on the first editions of 1650 and 1651, collated with those editions published during Taylor's lifetime. The critical apparatus includes textual variants, a full commentary, and a textual introduction. The general introduction to both volumes sets out Taylor's life and the intellectualbackground of these devotional and literary classics.
P. G. Stanwood is at University of British Columbia.

Editorial Reviews

'P.G. Stanwood has presented us with a reliable text based upon scrupulous collation of all the editions published during Taylor's lifetime ... Holy Living is in every way an achievement equal to that of Holy Dying; the two treatises are counterparts, each excellent in its kind. We can begrateful to this new edition for increasing our appreciation of a major writer of English prose and a major defender of the potential for good in human nature.'Louis L. Martz, Yale University, Modern Philology
