Oxford English Texts

Jeremy Taylor's Holy Living and Holy Dying are two of the most famous prose works of 17th-century English literature and among the greatest examples of Anglican spirituality. These new editions are the first critically edited and fully annotated editions to appear since 1842. The text is based on the first editions of 1650 and 1651 and includes notes on textual variants, a full commentary, a textual introduction, and a general introduction recounting Taylor's life and the intellectual background of his devotional classics.
