Synopsis of The Country Parson, The Temple:

Collected here are two works originally published after Herbert’s death at Bemerton in 1633: The Country Parson, a prose treatise on the duties, joys, and hardships of a pastor’s life; and The Temple, a collection of poems. In them the literary genius of this humble priest whose spirituality was a synthesis of Evangelical and Catholic piety is revealed.

The most in-depth and scholarly panorama of Western spirituality ever attempted!
In one series, the original writings of the universally acknowledged teachers of the Catholic, Protestant, Eastern Orthodox, Jewish, Islamic and Native American traditions have been critically selected, translated and introduced by internationally recognised scholars and spiritual leaders.
