Democratizing Sir Thomas Browne: Religio Medici and Its Imitations
Clarendon Press, 1999 - 232 pages
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.
