George Herbert's Holy Patterns: Reforming Individuals in Community

by

George Herbert's Holy Patterns: Reforming Individuals in Community explores Herbert's understanding of full individuality in community. Like his mother Lady Magdalen Danvers and her friend John Donne, and unlike many of his Anglican contemporaries, Herbert imagined significant continuity with the pre-Reformation past; that imagination was tied to a prophetic imagining of the future triumph of Christ's universal and apostolic church. Herbert's project was to purify; a unified national church from within, this purification taking place through lives lived communally in self-scrutiny, self-regulation, sacrifice, and loving service.
