Democratizing Sir Thomas Browne: Religio Medici and Its Imitations

Front Cover
This study looks anew at one of the most popular books of the seventeenth century, Sir Thomas Brown's Religio Medici. Daniela Havenstein considers neglected seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century responses to this central work. Browne's style is reassessed in a fresh approach that combines
traditional analysis with carefully developed quantitative methods.
