Bishop Lancelot Andrewes (1555-1626) is remembered chiefly for his historic role as a head translator of the 1611 King James Bible, and 'for his sublime sermons, lately admired and interpreted by Russian Orthodox theologian Nicholas Lossky for their patristic quality and profound affinities with Eastern Orthodox theology and liturgical texts.' Bishop Andrewes was in all respects an extraordinary man. His intellect was prodigious. He knew Greek, Latin, and Hebrew as well as at least seventeen other modern and ancient languages. His administrative ability was peerless, and his knowledge of patristic sources profound. Yet Andrewes said of himself, 'there is an estate of life which is contemplative, and another active, and our infirmity is such as we know not which of them to take our selves unto' -despite outer responsibility, he never neglected his fervent inner life. These beautiful Private Devotions, compiled by Andrewes from ancient Greek, Latin and Hebrew texts for his personal use, give insight to the hidden life of this very public figure, for whom, nevertheless, prayer was a constant companion. 136 pp.
