Jeremy Taylor

Bishop of Down, Connor, and Dromore; Caroline Divine
b. 1613
d. August 13, 1667

The Caroline Divines were influential authors who thrived during the seventeenth century through the reign of Charles I and then, later, after the Restoration. Among the many Caroline Divines are Lancelot Andrewes, William Laud and Herbert Thorndike.

Jeremy Taylor is well known for his sermons, and even more well known for two books: The Rule and Exercises of Holy Living (1650) and The Rule and Exercises of Holy Dying (1651).

Collect:

O God, whose days are without end, and whose mercies cannot be numbered: Make us, we beseech thee, like thy servant Jeremy Taylor, deeply sensible of the shortness and uncertainty of human life; and let thy Holy Spirit lead us in holiness and righteousness all our days; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
