Religio Medici

Filed under: books — Matt @ 19:46

The title of this post is the title of a book I received for my birthday. My older brother ordered a 1903 edition, on vellum, of Sir Thomas Browne’s Religio Medici from that Holy of Holies, Powell’s.

I can’t believe I’m geeking out on this, but I am. My poor wife knows she’s married to a geek, but I don’t think she knows just how geeky…

  2. Matt, you had to remind me just how freaking uncultured I am. I’m intrigued by the title only because I fell in love with Florence while I was there. Gimme a two-sentence synopsis, and I’ll decide if I’m really interested.

  3. Philosophical treatise; rougly translated: Doctor’s Religion.

    Haven’t started reading it yet.

  4. Okay. Completely uncultured. But still intrigued on yet another level. (shaking my head)
