Known as the “star of preachers,” Lancelot Andrewes was one of the foremost scholars and theologians during the reigns of Elizabeth I and James I of England. So great was his command of language that he was appointed head of the committee that created the Authorized Version (or King James Version) of the Bible. After Andrewes’ death, King Charles I ordered that his sermons be collected and published. T. S. Eliot converted to Christianity (from Unitarianism) after reading these collected sermons. According to Eliot, “they rank with the finest English prose of their time, of any time.”
The Lancelot Andrewes Collection combines the 96 sermons collected by Charles I with two volumes of Andrewes’ private devotions. Sermons are grouped topically for easy access, and you can cross-reference other sermon collections with a click. Latin, Greek, and Hebrew words link to language resources in your library, and you can define difficult or out-of-date English words with the dictionary lookup function. Complete indexing allows you to access these historical texts with Logos’ state-of-the-art search functions.
Volume five contains “Certain Sermons Preached at Sundry Times, upon Several Occasions,” “Nineteen Sermons upon Prayer in General and the Lord’s Prayer in Particular,” and “Seven Sermons upon the Temptation of Christ in the Wilderness.”
Devotions of Bishop Andrewes, vol. 1 contains John Henry Newman’s English translation of Lancelot Andrewes’ manual of devotions, originally written in Greek.
John Henry Newman (1801–1890) was born in London. Though he grew up in an Evangelical Anglican home, Newman became the de facto leader of the Oxford Movement, a revival associated with the high-church Anglican party. In 1845, Newman was received into the Roman Catholic Church, where he was made a cardinal in 1879. Newman is known as one of the brightest intellectual lights of the Victorian period. His writings have had a broad influence, most notably in theology and philosophy.
The Devotions of Bishop Andrewes, vol. 2 contains John Mason Neale’s English translation and arrangement of the private Latin devotions of Lancelot Andrewes.
John Mason Neale (1818–1866) was born in London. He attended the University of Cambridge where he studied classics. Ordained in the Church of England, he—motivated by the Oxford Movement—started the Cambridge Camden Society, which advocated for a return to medieval architecture in church buildings. Neale founded the first women’s order in the Church of England, the Society of St. Margaret. One of the most prolific hymn writers and translators of the nineteenth century, Neale is responsible for the translation of more than 60 hymns, including “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel,” “Good King Wenceslas,” and “All Glory, Laud, and Honor.”

About Lancelot Andrewes
Lancelot Andrewes (1555–1626) was born in All Hallows, Barking, in London. He graduated from Cambridge University with a BA and an MA. He became a fellow of Pembroke Hall, Cambridge, in 1576. He was ordained in 1580 and made master of Pembroke Hall and chaplain to the Archbishop of Canterbury in 1589. The following year he became chaplain to Queen Elizabeth I. Andrewes’ sermons recommended him to James I, who made him general editor of the Authorized Version (King James Version) of the Bible. In 1605, Andrewes became bishop of Chichester. His sermon following the foiled Gunpowder Plot in 1606 became the foundation for celebrations that continue today. He eventually became Bishop of Winchester, a position he held until his death in 1626.
