Immerse yourself in the spiritual life of Bishop Lancelot Andrewes, with our edition of his Private Devotions, translated by John Henry Newmans and John Mason Neale’s. A devoted homilist, pastor, and scholar, Andrewes (1555-1626) was the head translator of the 1611 King James Bible. With mastery of over nineteen modern and ancient languages, his deep understanding of patristic thought is woven within these Private Devotions, compiled from ancient Greek, Latin and Hebrew texts for his personal use. This gorgeous hardcover edition of the work gives insight to the hidden life of this very public figure for whom private prayer was a constant companion.
Our edition of Lancelot Andrewes’ Private Devotions contains John Henry Newman and John Mason Neale’s translation of the work, and the front cover is embossed with the arms of the Bishop of Winchester.
