Before the King’s Majesty: Lancelot Andrewes and His Writings


Canterbury Press 2008

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Lancelot Andrewes was a towering figure in the formative years of the Church of England. Averse to the puritanical spirit of the age, he helped to create a distinctive Anglican theology, moderate in outlook and Catholic in tone. He believed that theology should be built on sound learning. He held a high doctrine of the Eucharist, and he emphasized dignity and order in worship. Before the King’s Majesty offers a wide selection of Andrewes’ writings and a general introduction to his life.
