Overview

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 Anglicanism (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 Latin, Greek, and Hebrew words link to language resources in your library, and you can define difficult or out-of-date English words with the dictionary lookup function.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.

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.

    Is it just me or do the Ninety-Six sermons of Lancelot Andrewes actually contain 99 sermons? Sermons 9 in volume 5 has a footnote as follows: "This Sermon is not one of the Ninety-six, nor does it occur in some of the earlier editions. It is given in that of 1661 between the last on the Gunpowder Treason and the Occasional Sermons." So i'll assume there are another two similarly placed that are not part of the original 96.

    Very rare and truly wonderful! Andrewes a translator of the original King James Old Testament is a joy to read. He has a profound understanding of the incarnation and and man's relationship to God.

    It's exciting to see this available for Logos. I haven't myself purchased it, so my rating is based simply on my joy to see Faithlife expending the resources to make these classic texts more accessible. If you're reading this, you're probably enough of an Andrewes aficionado to enjoy an article I wrote ages ago, “The Feast in the Text: The Sermons of Lancelot Andrewes,” Anglican Theological Review 76 (1994) 9-26. I think a .pdf may be floating around online somewhere. I hope we may yet see the sermons of John Donne and perhaps even those of Jeremy Taylor appear in the Logos library!

    I'm curious if the Exeter Manuscript will be included or not - the 'Orphan Lectures'.
