Lancelot Andrewes, the Preacher, 1555-1626 Summary


Lancelot Andrewes, the Preacher, 1555-1626: The Origins of the Mystical Theology of the Church of England by Nicholas Lossky

Lancelot Andrewes - "England's Bossuet" - was James I's favourite court preacher. His sermons for the great festivals of the Christian year constitute a notable exposition of "Classical Anglicanism", the Anglicanism of those - like Richard Hooker and the Caroline Divines - who defended the Elizabethan Settlement as the restoration of the true nature of the Christian Church, Catholic and Reformed. This is a study of Andrewes' theology, and illustrates his insights with long quotations from the sermons. As the work of a Russian Orthodox lay-theologian, it is of ecumenical significance and shows how Andrewes stands close to the theology of the Greek Fathers whom he had studied deeply. It is also significant in revealing one of the less-noted influences on T.S.Eliot who ranked Andrewes' sermons "with the finest English prose of their time, of any time".
