Abstract and Keywords
This article examines Thomas Browne's Religio Medici. Religio Medici remains a perplexing amalgam of wandering subject matter and rhetorical silkiness. It is first and foremost a meditation on religion, but even within such a category, it is a slippery entity, at one moment confessional and irenic, capaciously tolerant and gentle on heresies, while the next it is fastidious and captious about the radical presence in England. It is by turns a rhapsody on Laudian ceremony, a miscellany of scriptural curiosa troubling the categories of faith and reason, and a disquisition on spirit, soul and body.
